SL-6 smart battery adapter solution?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  Has anyone created any kind of adapter for the audioroot/remoteaudio smart battery to be used in the internal NP-1 slot of the SL-6?  The guy in the video below MacGyvered a solution (@ 09:36), but I was looking something less invasive (or negating a warranty).   Thanks!

NP-1 Battery dimensions: 7.3" x 2.8" x 1"

Smart Battery dimensions: 5.9" x 3.0" x .89"
 

The Smart batteries are wider than the NPs. I know of no warranty protecting hole stretchers – so you'll need to modify the case

Ya I was thinking along the lines of a smart battery cup with a wire to an adaptor inside the slot :)

Would be interested about how stable this adapter is when used over the shoulder. It is a bit shorter than a NP-1 so does it keep in contact with the SL-6 slot contacts. I like having power in the NP-1 slot and on the external input for ease of battery change.
