While stories of mishaps and disasters are often funny when told in hindsight—provided they didn’t end tragically, of course—at the time they’re often costly and embarrassing. If you and your film crew have spent days travelling to a remote part of the Arctic Circle to shoot a documentary, the last thing you want is the perfect shot of an arctic fox and its cub hunting for food spoiled by a flat battery. Nothing seems so innocuous yet so damaging to the rhythm and budget of a film shoot than not having enough battery charger accessories to achieve your goals.
At PROtog, we always believed in the importance of being properly prepared when it comes to battery charger accessories. That is why we’ve taken the time to create an extensive range of battery charger accessories and battery charger adaptors, so that no matter how long or difficult your shoot or campaign is, we’ll be able to pair with battery charger accessories that keep you running smoothly, efficiently, and for longer filming sessions. From battery adapters to power supplies to bank chargers to storage cases and carry bags, whatever you need to run long, successful shoots, we’ll have it.
It’s not simply a matter of having rechargeable batteries on hand for a shoot. Regardless of whether you’re on location or in the studio, relying on rechargeable batteries depends a lot on the quality of the chargers themselves. A lot of basic batteries rely on a timer to tell you whether the battery is full or not. The problem with these kinds of batteries is that they will assume any battery is empty, even if it is partly charged. This can lead to overcharging, which overheats the battery and reduces its life.
These problems can be avoided by using Maha Powerex Battery Chargers. These chargers are known as smart chargers, which means they microprocessors to check the life of the battery. The result is that they supply the right amount of power to properly charge the battery without overcharging it, which extends the life of the battery. When you have long, repetitive campaigns such as catalogue shoots, without the right battery charger accessories, you run the risk of an interrupted or delayed shoot, which—in the fast-paced worlds of fashion and retail, especially—can affect more than just those working on the shoot.
