Red One camera battery VS Sony V-Lock battery

Since its release in year 2006 Red camera has received wide popularity from all over the world. We received a lot of inquiries for Red One camera batteries. Now Sunpow launched replacement battery which is able to communicate their status with the RED One camera. Then what's difference between Red One camera battery and Sony V-Lock battery? Here we detail it.

1. From appearance
Red One battery looks quite similar to Sony V-Lock battery. But if you looks at them carefully then you will note subtle difference. The Sony V-Lock battery normally has eight contacts(Six on side, two on top), the Red One battery has only five contacts. Plese see below pictures for details.


2. Besides the subtle appreance difference, the Red One camera battery has a difference circuit board design from that of Sony V-Lock battery. Its wiring is also total different, which results in contacts layout.

3. Even though you changed V-Lock battery's circuit board same as Red One camera battery, it also can't communicate with Red One camera's viewfinder. Because Red One camera has a special chip inside. So the battery has to be equiped with this chip code. Without this chip you can't see battery's status from viewfinder. Fortunately Sunpow already decode this chip to make its battery completely compatible with
Red One camera and its viewfinder. Contact Sunpow for more details of Red One battery if you have any questions.
