The newly announced ZILR NP-F970 USB-C PD battery has a capacity of 72.36Wh (10,050mAh). The base terminal of the battery supports the standard 7.4V while the USB-C PD supports various outputs that include 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A, 15V/1.2A, and 20V/0.9A to power a wide range of USB-C devices and cameras that are capable of USB-C continuous power mode.

ZILR, a company based in Melbourne, Australia, focuses on fast HDMI and USB-C cables. With more and more cameras outputting a raw signal over HDMI, there are never enough reliable HDMI cables. With the latest announcement, the company ventures into another field of camera accessories. They just announced an NP-F970 battery with USB-C power delivery. Let’s take a short look at it.

As the name implies, the battery features the same size as a regular NP-F970. It has a capacity of 72.36Wh or 10,050mAh. The added value, in this case, is the USB-C PD (Power Delivery) connector that can provide various outputs for powering other accessories.

The base terminal of the battery supports the standard 7.4V. The USB-C PD supports various outputs that include 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A, 15V/1.2A, and 20V/0.9A. This way, the ZILR NP-F970 USB-C PD Battery is compatible with a wide range of USB-C devices when using USB-C cable adapters and cameras that are capable of USB-C continuous power mode. For instance, the SIGMA fp cameras as well as Panasonic S series or some Sony alpha cameras support USB-C power delivery.

ZILR presented few different scenarios on how the NP-F970 USB-C PD can be used to power different devices. For example:

  • Directly into an NP-F L-Series device
  • Power bank mode via USB-C, powering devices including phones and tablets without an NP-F device
  • On a monitor/recorder that supports an NP-F slot, and using the USB-C to a dummy adaptor to power a camera, powering both devices at the same time
  • USB-C into a camera that supports continuous power over USB-C while turned on

There is also a convenient LED power indicator located on the battery that displays the charge level. The battery may also be directly charged via USB-C for compatibility with USB-C AC wall chargers. In fact, ZILR launched their own new 65W USB-C PD AC wall charger that works well with the battery.

For added flexibility, I think it would be interesting to pair this battery with the Power Junkie from Blind Spot, which we reviewed here.
