The new Endura Cue battery range from IDX is claimed to combine enhanced reliability with lower cost. The Lithium Ion batteries have been designed to meet the most stringent PSE regulations for electrical and mechanical safety – essential for air travel.
There are three V-Mount models: Endura Cue-D75, Endura Cue-D95 and Endura Cue-D150. All have D-Tap DC output, allowing peripherals to be powered direct, while a discharge cut off prevents them being damaged by products without a voltage-sensing shut down mechanism. Four LEDs provide a quick check of remaining power capacity. The range comes with a one-year capacity-better-than-70% and a two-year defects warranty.
The cells have been supplied by Sanyo, which has combined improvements in design and manufacturing with developments in microchip technology to reduce the component count and improve reliability. The Cue range includes battery circuit protection, to counter overcharging and discharging or exposure to high temperatures.
