    Switronix Hypercore Batteries

    Note: We ran the Westcott Flex off of the Switronix 150WH Hypercore betteries for both days (actually batteries but they are better batteries!). They performed flawlessly and we could run for almost 3 hours at full power on each of them.

    Notes: We tweaked this a bit more after the test. Main things were handling a strange catch light in right eye and swapping the RØDE NT55 out for the RØDE NTG 3 microphone which was much better in that particular interior space. Other minor stuff but the rest was pretty much as is. We shot a much tighter frame as well so they could cut between a wider and tighter shot. The president ran the script about 5-6 times.
