V-RAPTOR - Compatible Batteries


Compatible batteries are those that provide enough current (14.4v with 8A or greater) to power the RED V-RAPTOR & also fit the dimensions on the V-RAPTOR’s integrated Micro V-Lock plate. 

RED chose the Micro V-Lock plate for the V-RAPTOR to keep its form-factor compact. As a result, not all V-Lock batteries are compatible with the camera, and they require an adapter. 

NOTE: V-Lock batteries with a width greater than 75mm (2.95”) are not compatible with the camera’s Micro V-Lock plate & will require adapter plates. 

NOTE: The camera allows you to charge batteries that support SMBUS communication directly. The camera must be powered off, and the AC power adaptor connected to a power source and to the camera’s DC-IN port.

Below is a small subset of available batteries on the market that have been RED-tested & deemed compatible. These batteries fit the camera’s native Micro V-Lock plate and communicate with the camera to display battery percentage and time remaining information within the camera’s UI. Other batteries may however be compatible.

WARNING: While third-party batteries may be mechanically compatible with the camera system, the manufacturer is responsible for the performance and stability of third-party options, not RED. Damage to the camera system or third-party devices caused by using third-party power options is not covered under warranty. The camera may be unable to determine and display the voltage or remaining battery capacity of third-party power options.
*These batteries have ports on the battery which may interfere with V-RAPTOR's rear I/O stack when cables are plugged in.
** These batteries have a lower max load limit & may cause camera brown-outs if additional accessories other than the camera are drawing power from them.
