CoreSWX has a new RED Komodo V-mount battery adapter model CXV-KOMU, which is RED approved. The adapter plate slots easily in the dual Canon BP battery slots giving you access to use 14.4V V-mount batteries. 

With the recent official launch of the RED Komodo, many soon-to-be proud Komodo camera owners are rushing to kit out their new rig. And a decent battery plate for Gold or V-mount batteries that enables longer run-times is essential.

RED-Approved Accessory for KOMODO 6K camera

The market for 3rd party RED Komodo accessories is growing fast, but not all accessories are RED-approved. Well, the good news is that the CoreSWX V-mount adapter in question here carries the coveted RED seal of approval, meaning they’ve tested the adapter, and it will also provide percentage remaining to the camera’s built-in top screen.

Displays Battery Percentage Remaining/Run-time

Note, that such batteries need to be “smart” and also pass SMBUS data. The CoreSWX Nano range does this for example, and so do a few others on the market. Best to check your battery’s specs to ensure it can send data to the adapter/camera.

And since, the CoreSWX V-mount adapter slots into the BP battery slots it does not occupy the camera’s DC input, leaving it available for AC power and battery hot swap.

Expanded I/O with D-Tap, LEMO, and USB ports

In addition, the CoreSWX CXV-KOMU adapter also features three DC output ports: 1 x D-tap, USB, and a 2-pin LEMO. For added security ensuring a snug and secure fit, the plate also comes with a reinforced V-Mount locking mechanism.

The CoreSWX V-mound adapter for RED Komodo is priced at $199 and available to order either direct or from authorised dealers such as B&H Photo.
