What is the build quality like?
Can it take wear and tear?

Its built with plastic so very light and fits well.
When a NP-F970 battery is mounted it seems secure enough.
The battery does sit proud at the top as in the photo but much less so if you have a cage on your camera body.
Wear and tear hopefully will be fine too, I can't see anything different than other adapters and have no reason to suspect it won't last. I suppose, given the cost, one could buy more if needed.
Thanks

I know of the IndiPRO adapter. (very pricey, but adaptable)

May I ask what other adapters you have found, LP-E6 to Sony NP-F?

I use a Juicebox. I connected the juicebox battery to my BMMCC and VA 5" using a DC Y splitter. I recorded footage nonstop using the BMMCC and VA and was able to get 3 1/2 hours out of the juice box battery on a full charge. Pretty impressive! Goodbye LP-E6 batteries. I'm buying another Juicebox this week so I can have 2 batteries that will power the BMMCC and VA 5". for 7 hours for under $200. You can't beat that!

Does anyone know if the battery information still reads while using one of these?

Will the BMMCC still show the battery % on screen?

thank you.
