external battery question?..new translations

PostSun Dec 15, 2013 8:50 pm

Hi, i have the switronix PB70-BMCC.i read opinions if its better or not charged the internal bttery of bmcc when this one its conected to a externa battery like PB70.

as with laptops if you leave this connected to the mains, the battery tends to die. The PB-BMCC charge the internal battery of bmcc when its connect to bmcc.

what would be the best solution for not ending the internal battery?

100% chargued pb70-bmcc and 0% internal bmcc battery

or

the two battery at 100% and when all its 0% rechargued both

Thanx!

Yes, it is best to connect an external battery to camera with internal battery fully charged 100 percent.
If you do not charge internal battery of BMCC, the external battery will drain trying to charge the internal battery. Of all are charged first, you will get longest run time.
