TENDRIL Retractile Block Battery Cable
The Media Blackout TENDRIL series of retractile cables are custom manufactured, high-resilience rubber cables. The TENDRIL Retractile Block Battery Cable is suitable for powering all 12V and 24V cinema and television cameras from block batteries which can be stored under or near the tripod. Using retractile cables means greatly reducing or eliminating the chance of anybody tripping over the power cable while making camera repos simpler.
The TENDRIL Block Battery Cable features a retracted coil length of 20″ with 6″ leads and a 5:1 stretch ratio. The cable returns to its original shape without being too rigid. 12V cables feature a Male 4-pin XLR while 24V cables come terminated with male 3-pin XLR. Standard wiring is compatible with Anton/Bauer Cine VCLX block batteries (or compatible). Cables can be wired for Panavision block batteries upon request.
