SHAPE has just released a new Full Play 99Wh mini battery as well as a compact and lightweight multi D-Tap V-Mount battery plate. The battery features a built-in LCD battery capacity gauge, two P-tap 14.4V ports, two USB ports, and it supports a continuous draw of up to 10A. Let’s take a closer look!
Mini V-Mount batteries have slowly become the new standard over the last years. Canadian manufacturer SHAPE is joining the party with a new Mini battery offering inside their Full Play lineup that was introduced back in 2018.
SHAPE Full Play 99Wh Mini Battery features
The SHAPE Full Play 99Wh mini battery (codename V99MB) is a compact and lightweight battery: 7.5 x 5.1 x 10cm / 2.95 x 2 x 3.94in for a weight of only 500g/1.12lbs.
On the front of the mini battery you will find a small LCD display. This display shows you the remaining power and the charging status.
There is one 14.4V P-Tap port on each side of the battery, as well as two USB ports (5V, 2A) on top of the battery.
This 99Wh mini battery supports a maximum continuous 10A power draw between the V-mount, D-tap, and USB ports. Last but not least, this battery is IATA-approved, so you can safely travel by plane with it.
SHAPE Multi D-Tap V-Mount battery plate features
To go along with this new battery, SHAPE also launched a compact V-Mount battery plate with 15mm LWS. This lightweight (247g/0.5lbs) plate is made out of aluminum and tightens only via one knob.
It features four built-in P-Tap output ports with 14.4V on each port and a maximum of 10 amps output. In addition, all P-Tap ports are regulated, which is incredible at this price point.
Price and availability
The SHAPE FULL PLAY 99Wh mini battery is available now for $245/€275. The Multi D-Tap V-Mount battery plate is also available now for $148/€167.
