In the world of video, Canon LP-E6 batteries have managed to become the standard across many accessories whether it be LED lighting, Monitors, EVFs, and more. At NAB 2015 we checked out the newest version of the IndiProTools Power Pods that takes these batteries to the next level.

The Power Pods are adapters that allow you to use inexpensive Canon LP-E6 batteries to power just about everything. Mounting the pod is easy as it comes with a 1/4" tripod mount for you to add a 15mm clamp, friction arm, mini ball head, or hot shoe adapter.
For anyone shooting with the Sony A7s or BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cameras, these Power Pods are the perfect external battery pack. In previous versions, the Power Pods had a dedicated cable built in which meant you had to choose the correct Power Pod for each application. Now the Power Pods are completely modular.
With a standard DC input connection you can easily make your Power Pod compatible with practically any device or camera by choosing the proper cable. The modular cables have a DC Voltage regulator built in-line ensuring that you don't over juice your camera or accessory even if you chose the 14.4V Power Pod to power up your Sony A7s camera that only requires 7.2V.
