Blind Spot Gear Power Junkie – First Look
If you are constantly running out of power and need to manage different type batteries not to mention chargers for all of your different cameras and accessories, then the Power Junkie might be the solution you have been waiting for.
This adaptor takes in a Sony style NP-F battery and converts it into a 7.2 DC out which you can use to charge cameras/small lights or monitors plus 2 5V USBs which can be used for some recorders and other types of gear you might have.
Sony NP-F batteries are inexpensive and have good availability and they come in different sizes/capacities so you can choose the right one for the task.
What is really cool is that this small unit called the Power Junkie also charges the NP-F battery using either USB-C or micro USB connector which eliminates the need to carry an extra charger. It has a power indicator on the side and a nice click when the battery is connected.
Even nicer – the unit has both a cold shoe and a 1/4″ 20 and an option to connect cable ties so you can attach this little beauty to almost any rig you can imagine.
The official Blind Spot Gear Power Junkie Kickstarter video
The product is currently on Kickstarter raising funding and it supports all main camera brands (including Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Panasonic) via a dummy battery which you can also purchase. Funding starts at around $45 which we feel is very reasonable for such a product and we hope to be able to test it later this year.
We have covered some of Blind Spot Gear’s previous Kickstarter projects including the recent Scorpion Light v2.
