SmallRig just released the VB99 Pro, a compact and versatile V-mount battery boasting 6,700mAh capacity, 99Wh, and 14.8V output. The VB99 Pro is an upgrade to the VB99 that we have reviewed last year.
This new battery supports 100W of bidirectional fast charging through USB-C and possesses the capability to energize high-end mirrorless cameras, computers, and tablets for extended durations. As an upgrade over the previous VB99 model, the VB99 Pro introduces additional interface options to this lithium-ion battery. It employs an intelligent chip that enables the swift 2.5-hour full charge time, with just 10 minutes of charging delivering a two-hour power boost, a 30% improvement from the earlier iteration.
