PAGlink Battery Specifications
Model No. 9303
PAGlink PL96e Battery
The rated maximum continuous output current for
linked batteries is 12 amperes.
Model No. 9304

It is recommended that no more than 3 batteries
are linked for use on-camera, although it is
possible to link up to 8 off-camera and for charging.
When linked, PAGlink batteries form a high-speed
serial network, allowing the batteries to communicate
with each other. They will then report to the camera
or charger as one large battery.
The system will automatically select the most
suitable batteries for discharge, according to their
charge status.
The PAGlink system ensures that the maximum
linked output is kept to a safe level.
Protection:
The battery incorporates the following safety
shutdown systems:
• 3 over-current shutdown systems.
• 2 over-voltage shutdown systems.
• 2 under-voltage shutdown systems.
• 3 thermal shutdown systems, including a non
resetting thermal fuse.
• All protection circuits within the battery are
coated with Parylene to withstand the effects
of electrolyte leakage.
Charging:
PAGlink Batteries can be charged whilst linked
using any reputable V-Mount Li-Ion charger.
New PAGlink chargers, such as the 2-position
PL16 (9707) and 4-position Cube (9708) can
charge simultaneously up to 16 batteries from any
state of charge. Other suitable chargers include
the ultra-compact PAGlink Micro Charger (9710).
Charge times will vary depending on the condition
and state of charge of the batteries. Typically,
eight fully-discharged batteries will be fullycharged in 12 hours.
Operating Temperature Range:
PAGlink batteries incorporate precision temperature management, extending low-temperature
performance down to -20°C. Optimum discharge
efficiency is achieved within the temperature
range +10°C to +40°C.
Viewfinder Information Display
PAGlink supports four battery status standards for
the communication of capacity data to the camera
viewfinder: SMB (Sony), I2C (IDX), reversed SMB
(RED) and analogue 0V to 5V (Anton Bauer). The
batteries adjust automatically when connected to
the camera.

PAG has introduced a new range of V-Mount Plates
and D-Tap Power Leads designed to power a wide
range of popular cameras using intelligent PAGlink
Batteries. The cameras include:
• Blackmagic Digital Cinema
• Canon C100/300/500
• Canon EOS 5D & 7D
• Nikon D800
• Red Epic/Scarlet
The V-Mount Plate assembly is designed to be
clamped to the mattebox/camera accessory rails and
can be configured vertically or horizontally, above or
below, ensuring the best position in relation to the
camera display and accessories. There are two PAG
V-Mount Plate options: one for use with 15mm rails

Model 9401, and one for 19mm rails, Model 9402.
The V-Mount incorporates a D-Tap output for
connection to the camera, using the appropriate PAG
D-Tap Power Lead. The lead features a camera specific
connector, and can be supplied with an in-line downconverter for those cameras that require a 7.2V to
8.2V power input (contact PAG for details).
A 96Wh PAGlink Battery will run a DSLR all day, or a
Blackmagic Cinema camera, that consumes 23W, for
more than 4 hours. An additional battery can be linked
to double run-time or provide a higher current draw of
12A, to power your camera and accessories
simultaneously. The PAGlink PowerHub provides all
the outputs you need (see above).
