For photographers that need constant power when working and can't afford to have even a slight delay, Tether Tools has released the Case Relay Camera Power System, the world's first power system that provides uninterrupted power to your camera via USB 5V or wall power. The technology allows for a hot swappable, consistent power source for most DSLR and mirrorless cameras currently on the market.
The Case Relay Power System is designed to provide 100% uptime, and connects to 2.1+ amp 5V USB power supplies and has an internal 1,200 mAh charge to allow for hot swapping. The new technology works by inserting a compatible Relay Camera Coupler into your camera's battery slot. The Case Relay Camera Power System is then connected to the Coupler and to a standard 5V external battery or AC power source.
When using an external battery source, or when you need to move to a different outlet, the Camera Power System's secondary 1,200 mAh internal charge kicks in. Tether Tools is also offering a new Rock Solid External Power Bank which holds 10,000 mAh, providing a reported 3 to 10 times more power than many camera batteries.
Tether Tools President Josh Simons says of the Case Relay Power System: "...is perfect for time-lapse photography, photo booths, video production, power-hungry Live View shooting, or any long day on the set. To a photographer or filmmaker, Case Relay means you will never run out of power and won't need to stress about remembering to charge and bring extra camera batteries for each body to every shoot."
The Case Relay Power System is available here for $99.99. The required Relay Camera Coupler is available here for prices ranging from $29.99 to $34.99. You can find the right coupler for your camera here, they're available now for various Canon, Nikon, Panasonic Lumix, and Sony cameras. Bundles and additional accessories including the new $49.99 Rock Solid External Battery Pack are also available.
