Designed to fit with the profile of a DSMC2 camera body, the REDVOLT-V™ is the ideal battery for the filmmaker on the go and for use in gimbal and drone configurations. This 43Wh rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides more power than the original REDVOLT® and weighs less than 1 lb. Compatible with any RED V-Lock battery expander or module (V-LOCK Battery Module, V-LOCK I/O Expander).

Use the RED BRICK Charger to charge the REDVOLT-V before using the REDVOLT-V for the first time. For more information, go to RED BRICK Charger.

NOTE: REDVOLT-V batteries require a RED BRICK Charger to recharge the battery.

NOTE: A DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander, Battery Belt Clip, RED Quickplate, RED Cradle, DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module, or DSMC2 Production Module (V-Lock) is required to use a REDVOLT-V battery with DSMC2 cameras. The RED Quickplate and RED Cradle require a 2B-to-1B Power Adaptor Cable.
