Description

BLUESHAPE proudly introduces a new series of tough battery packs designed to endure in any condition.

The new GRANITE construction features remarkable resistance to impacts and bumps, ideal for harsh production environments.
Discover the features of GRANITE
Advanced modular design
The lithium ion cells are secured inside the pack in a carefully designed and reinforced modular cage. All the metal interconnections and the electronic BMS board are integrated with the cells making a single core. No wiring is used. The metal, cell-to-cell tabs have been thickened using lower resistance alloy for improved welding strength and superior electrical conductivity.
D-Tap sockets are modularly deployed on each pack side and externally protected with snap on rubber caps.
Rock Solid Construction
The external V-Bracket is screwed to the inner core through the bottom case, by means of a reinforcement metal plate.
The outer battery pack shells wrap the inner core and clamp it with 8 perimeter screws.
A coloured rubber gasket is sandwiched in the middle between the outer shells to improve water resistivity apart from giving the battery, a smarter look.
Superior resin
The outer shells are made of 4mm thick automative grade plastic resin featuring superb toughness and impact resistance even at low temperatures.
IP54 Certified
The superior GRANITE construction features an outer shell and insulations rated IP54 that guarantee protection and safety of operations against dust and water.
Improved overall pack longevity
The battery system as a whole will benefit from this robustness because of the reduced risk of internal disconnection or malfunction caused by unexpected crashes thus extending the overall pack life expectancy.

As a result all these significant technical improvements BLUESHAPE GRANITE battery packs are virtually indestructible. We have subjected them to intensive testing and we can safely say that such batteries can withstand several drops from heights up to 2 metres without suffering internal and external critical damages that render them unusable.

GRANITE, RUGGED AND RELIABLE



This economical and streamlined battery pack is ideal for low budget light video applications.

Featuring a 5 LED precise gauge for accurate capacity display integrated with state-of-the-art battery safety, balancing and monitoring technology and also providing digital communication with enabled devices. Furthermore, this battery provides 2 additional power outlets through D-Tap sockets conveniently located on the battery sides. These are electronically and independently protected against shorts and overload so as not to compromise the battery's main supply and provide power up to 5A. They can be conveniently used to power devices working at 14.8V nominal, or even USB powered gadgets and chargers through the PT-USB adapter.

No IATA restrictions, transportable in reasonable quantities in hand luggage only, or in the checked-in luggage if installed in the equipment.
 
A safer little detail
We care and strongly respect the IATA requirements when it comes to transporting batteries. Towards this, we have adopted high quality individual packaging for every individual battery.

A recent addition is the CONTACT COVER (shown here) that we started including on every V-mount battery that comes out of our production as the ultimate protection against short circuit of the contacts.
This cover does exactly what it says and makes it virtually impossible for a short between the terminals to occur during transport. This is our latest enhancement in our list of safety features that give maximum protection, especially important during air transport.

We request our clients to store the original boxes and also the CONTACT COVERS so as to reuse them if our batteries need to be transported in any aircraft.


Details

LED gauge and push button for capacity check. Each LED accounts for 20% of state of charge. When the capacity falls below 10% the lower (right-most) LED blinks
Rubberized coloured gasket for shock absorption and water resistance improvement
Auxiliary outputs from D-Tap sockets (14.8V nominal) with independent overload protection
High endurance rubber caps for protection of the D-Tap sockets when not in use
Outer case tightened by 8 screws for more maximum toughness and plastic stability during impacts and shocks
Metal V-bracket for precise fitting
Inner metal reinforcement plate
Robust thick-walled housing made of special plastic resin for superior impact resistance. The battery can withstand several drops from altitudes of up to 2 metres without breaking or suffering internal damage
