The PAG PAGlink PL96e Battery 96Wh 14.8V - V-Mount is the industry’s first intelligent linking battery system. PAGlink batteries can be used individually or linked to power a variety of cameras and equipment used for broadcast acquisition, video production or digital cinematography.

Link-Up and Power-Up

PAGlink is the only system that allows you to combine the capacities of two batteries or more, in any state of charge, to achieve longer run-times or a higher current-draw. Up to eight batteries can be linked for charge or discharge.

Two are Better Than One

PAGlink was designed so that flight-friendly battery units that have capacities below 100Wh can be linked to create a high-capacity Li-ion power source on location. Linking two 96Wh PL96 batteries doubles the capacity to 192Wh; three batteries provide 288Wh. No other system offers as much travel-compliant capacity.

The rated maximum continuous output for an individual battery is 8A, and 12A when batteries are linked. PAGlink offers more power for set-ups that include multiple accessories. Hard-wearing, heavy duty contacts are incorporated for high-current applications. Linking batteries shares the load and contributes to an extended battery life. No other battery system offers such good return on investment.

Flight Friendly

The PL96 is is unrestricted in quantity when you fly. Li-ion batteries that have capacities greater than 160Wh are currently banned from passenger aircraft. The PL96 has been tested to UN standards by an independent authority and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations. Each PAG Li-Ion battery is labelled with its UN Test number and air travel quantity allowance, based on its capacity.

More Air Transport Information

The PAGlink Network

Linked batteries form a network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between batteries. Unlike other systems, the linked batteries can be in any state of charge. PAGlink also allows batteries to be hot-swapped for continuous, uninterrupted power, putting an end to time-consuming camera reboots during shooting.

Smaller & Lighter Batteries

As well as being more intelligent, PAGlink batteries are smaller and lighter, with a higher energy density than any V-Mount system marketed to date.

Flexible Linking

The PL96e can be linked to any other PAGlink V-Mount battery for charge or discharge, regardless of rated capacity or state-of-charge.

Run-Time & Capacity Display

The PL96e incorporates a 5-light run-time & capacity indicator which shows remaining camera run-time in hours and minutes. When linked, run-time is displayed for the total of all batteries connected. Battery state-of-charge is displayed as a percentage, in six increments. The display maintains its accuracy by tracking the performance, and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the aging of the cells.

A PL96T or PL150T battery can be linked to a PL96e battery to provide a numeric display of remaining run-time for their combined capacities.

In-Viewfinder Information

PAGlink batteries support four different camera data systems that display capacity in the viewfinder/LCD (Sony, IDX, RED, and Anton/Bauer). The battery recognizes the system’s data protocol and adapts automatically when connected. The battery can be configured easily for compatibility with the RED camera data system by the user (see instruction booklet).

Linked Battery Charging

Linked battery charging was developed by PAG and is unique to the PAGlink system. It increases efficiency by allowing more batteries to be charged on fewer and smaller chargers, with less user intervention required. PAGlink allows up to eight batteries of any rated capacity, in any state of charge, to be linked for charging. The batteries control their own charge regime, which means that V-Mount Li-ion chargers from other reputable manufacturers can be used. The number of batteries that can be charged while linked is dependent on the charger model and firmware version.

Using PAGlink chargers is the best way to ensure the longest possible battery life. The 2-position PL16 charger (Model 9707) will simultaneously charge up to (16) PAGlink V-Mount batteries (8 per position). Status during charging is indicated on the PAGlink battery’s individual display, which can be inverted for legibility. PAGlink batteries can be left stacked on the charger, which will keep them topped-off until they are needed, instead of self-discharging.

Battery Data

PAGlink batteries store data, such as number of cycles and software version, in their microprocessor, which can be accessed using the PAGlink V-Mount Battery Reader (Model 9647). This information is designed to make battery management easier and more efficient.

Future-Proof Batteries

PAGlink battery firmware can be updated in the field by the user in a matter of seconds, without opening the battery case. Updates enable you to benefit from the technological advances that PAG introduces to accommodate developments in camera technology. 

Premier Quality Branded Li-ion Cells

PAGlink batteries feature long-life, premier-quality Lithium-ion cells, which have no memory effect, and are completely recyclable. In keeping with PAG’s total battery design philosophy, PAGlink batteries are constructed to provide the longest possible working life.

Ultra-Tough Construction

The battery case is manufactured from high-impact, injection-moulded polycarbonate, which is inherently strong (often used for motorcycle crash helmets). The internal case design also protects the cell-pack against impact damage.

Superior Protection System

The battery features a multi-level electronic protection system which is fail-safe and guards against conditions that reduce battery life. The protection circuits within the battery are coated with Parylene, the premier vapor-deposited conformal coating, to ensure continued operation of the safety systems in the event of damage to the battery.
