Looks deadly yet sexy at the same time.

Here's to hoping you never have to go through airport screening with it. ;)

Yeah, they will probably have an M-4 pointed to my head while I try to explain that it's a simple battery in a fancy enclosure... that it's made from LiFePo cells that is the safest lithium battery type of the bunch, but do you think the screener would even comprehend? :L

Joe, if all goes well I will certainly consider selling this device, including the battery pack in my previous post. Stay tuned! :D

Alberto,

Are you basing this design from the LibertyPak Little Genny LG400?

They're selling that thing for about $3k! Aside from the price, they're pretty cool. They have an XLR port as well to power video equipment, attach a solar charge panel, or to daisy chain multiple packs together.

Something like that. I saw that and I thought it would be a better container than a lens case. First, because of weight issues - I don't think it would have been comfortable carrying nearly 6 pounds around my waist. Second, because I didn't want a loose cable dangling from the lens case, that eventually would wear down and possibly damage the battery leads. And third, I would most likely use it in conjunction with a lightstand, and not so much on a monopod/boom with an assistant holding it.

I'm getting some aluminum pieces custom cut at a shop, so it will look nice and CNC'd :D

Damn, this project is getting expensive... and dangerous. I just got back from the ER where I got four stitches on my left middle finger :( It was a pretty bad gash I got from one of the aluminum pieces I was working on. Next time I'll secure the piece with screws instead of trying to hold it in my hand as I drill through... :L

Glad to hear it wasn't worse. Sorry to hear about your labor of love injury.
