NP1 98Wh DATA Lithium-Ion Battery
The NP-98 is a NP1 battery offering 98 Watts of power. This battery is well suited to power sound equipment and various other accessories. The larger capacity NP1 should save you from switching or rotating batteries and power your kit for a good majority of the day, subject to your kit.
The NP-98 battery is fantastic for today's sound-recordist and can be used in conjunction with our APD power distribution box or regulated NP1 adaptor shoes.
This particular version "D" will allow data communication to NPD-8S
when used with NPD1
or other NP1 shoes and cups where the data pins are available.
NP-98D will offer communication to mixers such as Sound Device's 833 / 888 and Scorpio providing you are using a correct NP1 shoe - NPD-TA4
NP1 ATOM 4-Channel Fast Charger
NP1 Power adaptor to TA4 for Sound Devices Scorpio

"It's given me confidence"
In the location sound business going digital means greater power consumption by many of the new breed of mixer/recorders and digital RF systems. With that in mind it has become increasingly important to know your battery status when on location and often recording for hours at a time without a break. Hawkwoods have now introduced smart technology to their tried and tested NP1 range of Li-Ion batteries so that when I am on location be it a football stadium or on the side of a Yorkshire hillside I can be confident in the runtime of my gear and reduce the number of spare batts that I need to carry 'just in case'.
The great thing for me is that I don't need to buy a whole new set of NP1s.Given the high consumption of the gear in my bag I have been running two NP1s for a few years now, Hawkwoods have designed their solution so that only a single 'smart' NP1 need be used whilst the second NP1 can be of any brand and chemistry thus reducing the cost to change. Of course, you can also use a single smart NP1 with half the run time if you prefer.
For me it's given me confidence to know how long I have and therefore plan accordingly whilst also providing much needed additional 4pin Hirose sockets in my bag for the ever increasing number of devices that I now carry and need to be powered.http://www.devilstonefilms.com
