These days, almost everything we use for photography or video is battery powered, from cameras themselves to sliders, gimbals, monitors, lights, portable backup solutions and all other kinds of doohickies. One of the biggest names in batteries for photographers and filmmakers is Anton Bauer, but their batteries are shrinking, with the new Titon SL series offering larger capacities in smaller cases. We caught up with them at IBC 2019 to find out more.

The new Anton Bauer Titon SL series batteries were just announced this month, and come in 240 watt-hours and 150 watt-hours capacities. They use new high energy cells, allowing for a much higher storage capacity in a smaller space. This means that their new Titon SL 150 watt-hours battery is exactly the same size as the original Titon 90 watt-hours battery. The space savings of the new high energy cells has also allowed the creation of the new Titon SL 240 watt-hours capacity battery.

They’re available in both gold mount and V-Mount, and offer 12 volt P-Tap output as well as a smart USB socket. On the other side is an LCD showing charge percentage, as well as a duration indicator when they’re in use to let you know exactly how much time you have left at current power drain levels. I’m so happy that batteries are starting to switch over to an actual duration display now instead of just a percentage or a vague 4-LED indicator that rounds to the nearest 25%.

The Anton Bauer Titon SL batteries are available to pre-order now and should be shipping in the next couple of weeks.
