PD Hybrid Dual Charger is a newest rapid dual charger based on PD protocol. Its greatest strength is automatically identifying and rapidly charging the NP-F and BP-U batteries at one time without extra settings. Featured with max charge power 60W, the dual-slot charger has a great collaboration with 65W PD Power Adapter. In this case, charging two GripBAT 4S 52Wh to 80% only takes 90 mins and charging two GripBAT 2S 26Wh to 80% only takes 60 mins, 2~4 times faster than the regular charger. It weighs only 61g, smart and portable to use.
PD Hybrid Dual Charger best matches 64W PD Power Adapter. Thanks to the broad support and application of PD protocol, the hybrid charger can be used with most charging plug or AC Power Adapter that support PD protocol in the market, such as 61W or 30W AC Power Adapter with PD type-c port from Apple Inc. You can even use Kinefinity PD KineBAT 75/150 or Apple Macbook Pro/Air USB-C with PD Hybrid Dual Charger to charge BP-U30/NP-F550 batteries.
“Hybrid” charger means that the PD Hybrid Dual Charger is able to automatically identify and charge NP-F and/or BP-U batteries, no need to purchase different chargers. Moreover, the small guy can not only charge two BP-U batteries or two NP-F batteries simultaneously, but charge one BP-U battery and one NP-F battery at a time! NP-F550/570/970 and BP-U30/60/90 are the popular portable batteries in the film industry. GripBAT 4S is compatible with BP-U30 battery, which is able to work on MAVO/TERRA or SONY FS5/FS7/FX9; and NP-F batteries are widely applied to SmallHD, Atomos monitor, Movcam wireless focus, film lights and NBox livestream box.
Ideal for High Capacity Battery
With the improvement of battery cell technology, batteries are more and more manufactured with high capacity cell, for example, 3400mAh and 3500mAh with 18650 Li-ion battery cell. But the current “rapid” charger in the market can only charge the low campacity batteries (1000~2000mAh), such as BP-U30 dual charger with charge current 500~800mA only, that means, charging a 3500mAh (52Wh) GripBAT 4S to full is only in 6~8 hours.
PD Hybrid Dual Charger is particularly suitable for BP-U or NP-F batteries over 3000mAh, such as GripBAT 2S 26Wh (3500mAh, NP-F550 compatible) and GripBAT 4S 52Wh (3500mAh, BP-U30 compatible). Connected with 65W PD Power Adapter, the charging current can up to 3A when the PD Hybrid Dual Charger only charges single channel batteries; the single channel charging current is up to 2A, 2x2A totally when the hybrid charger charge dual channel batteries. For instance, charging two GripBAT 4S 52Wh to 80% only take 90 mins, 2~4 times faster than the regular charger.
Connect with 65W PD Power Adapter, then match different batteries:
- one/two NP-F battery;
- one/two BP-U battery;
- one BP-U battery and one NP-F battery.
- USB Type-C PD Input: 20V/15V/9V@3.25A (Recommend 65W or above)
- Compatible batteries: BP-U or NP-F battery;
- MAX charging power: 60W;
- MAX charging current: single channel 3000mAx1 or dual channel 2000mAx2;
- Self-adaptive charging voltage: 16.8V or 8.4V, auto-identify batteries without extra settings.
- PD Hybrid Dual Charger×1;
- PD Hybrid Dual Charger and 65W PD Power Adapter: PD Hybrid Dual Charger x1, 65W PD Power Adapterx1 and 5A high quality USB-C charge cable (1.5m)×1.
If you have the following PD Power Adapters: USB-C power adapter of Apple Macbook Pro, Thinkpad, even mobile phone, most of them is capable of direct use. Otherwise, you need to purchase a PD Power Adapter like the above.
Note: recommend using 65W PD Power Adapter to get the best charging result; PD Power Adapter lower than 60W may not work.
