Cine Gear 2018: Anton Bauer

Andrew of Anton Bauer was kind enough to join me at Cine Gear 2018, where he told me all about the new Dionic XT series of batteries they just announced.

Complete with a new look and form factor, the Dionic XT series has been updated with a stronger case made with a new polymer, which has bonded and screwed shut for impact and penetration resistance. While not waterproof, they are water resistant and can stand up to light rain or mist long enough for you to get your gear out of the elements. New cells and new cell management have increased the life span of these batteries by around 50 percent.

On the side of the case, you will find a P-Tap port and a two amp USB power output. The display window on the side features an easy-to-read backlight, which provides battery capacity as well as runtime once your equipment begins drawing power. A new diagnostic mode provides pack voltage, amperage or watt draw information, cell pack temperature and other useful information.

The Dionic XTs will be available in Anton Bauer Gold Mount and V-Mount options, and they work with both legacy Anton Bauer chargers as well as a large number of third party chargers. Because these batteries share the same 12 cell design as the older Dionics and the Cine 90s, their weight remains very similar at around 800 grams.
