Charging Batteries on the Go

VGW 7.4.14

Power is an essential aspect to video production, as most video field gear runs on batteries. Having more than one power source gives you the peace of mind of not running out of juice while on set.

In this week’s episode of Video Gear Weekly, Rich and I discuss several power options for charging batteries while out in the field.

This week, you’ll learn

  • The importance of charging batteries before going into the field
  • What a power inverter is
  • How solar chargers are beneficial
  • Why a battery pack is essential to field work
  • Strategies for extending battery life

Check out the sample videos above and this week’s complete episode on lynda.com, and we’ll make sure you never run out of power while shooting on the go.

Learn it from the experts.
