Pag 8241 MPL-99V (MPL/99V, MPL_99V, MPL99V, mpl-99v) Rechargeable V-Mount Li-Ion battery
The MPL99V is a 99Wh battery, designed to complement the dimensions of smaller cameras, but equally desirable for larger models. It will power cameras in combination with accessories such as lights and monitors. It provides a single, superior power source for your camera set-up.
The MPL99V features built-in outputs that the cameras lack: 2 fixed D-Taps for 12V accessories and a USB unit (5V 2A), which can be swapped easily by the user for a plug-in Lemo, Hirose or D-Tap connector unit.
Less Weight or More Power
With intelligent battery linking, you can control the capacity and weight of your power source to suit the application: 1 battery for handheld applications, 2 for more current or longer run-time.
Linking two 99Wh MPL99 batteries doubles the capacity to 198Wh; 3 batteries provide 297Wh.
More Current & Better ROI
When batteries are linked and in similar state of charge, the current-draw capability increases from 10A to 12A. This is ideal for camera set-ups that require power for multiple accessories. Sharing the current load between batteries contributes to an extended overall battery life and a better return on investment. PAG guarantees the MPL99V for 2 years.
Hot-Swap or Add
PAGlink allows seamless hot-swapping for continuous power, or the ability to add another battery just to keep shooting; putting an end to time-consuming camera reboots.
No Dead Weight
Simultaneous rather than sequential discharge means that there are no unused batteries adding dead weight to the camera.
When linked, the batteries form a network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between batteries. A fully-charged battery can be linked safely to one that is fully-discharged.
Compatibility & Integration
The MPL99V is compatible with full-size V-Mount camera plates. It can be linked to any PAGlink V-Mount battery for discharging or charging, regardless of rated capacity. It can be charged using PAGlink or Anton Bauer chargers, for maximum versatility and economic integration.
More Mounting Positions
Each battery features four 1/4” bush inserts. These can be used for mounting camera accessories to individual or linked batteries.
Run-Time, Capacity & Data
The MPL99V incorporates PAG’s unique display, which shows remaining run-time, on-load, in hours and minutes. When batteries are linked, the run-time figure is for the entire stack. A single button press shows individual battery capacity as a percentage of full, in 1% increments. The display maintains its accuracy by tracking performance and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the ageing of the cells. PAGlink batteries store data in their microprocessor, such as the number of charge/discharge cycles, which can be displayed in data mode. This information is designed to assist with battery management.
MPL99V batteries communicate automatically with the camera data system that allows Anton Bauer batteries to display their remaining capacity in the viewfinder and LCD.
The MPL99V is a 99Wh battery and included in your personal allowance of 20 units of 100Wh or below, when you fly. All PAG Li-Ion batteries are tested to UN standards by an independent authority and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations. They are labelled with their UN Test number and air travel quantity allowance, based on their capacity.

Linked Battery Charging
PAG is the only manufacturer that offers linked charging for V-Mount batteries. Linked charging allows more batteries to be charged using fewer chargers, and with less user-intervention.
Up to 8 x MPL99V batteries, in any state of charge, can be linked for charging with any PAGlink charger. The batteries control their own charge regime which means that Anton Bauer Li-Ion chargers can be used (dependent on the model and firmware version).
The 2-position PAG PL16 Charger will fully-charge one fully-discharged MPL99 in 2hrs 30mins, and 8 in 12hrs. State of charge as a percentage is indicated on the battery’s individual display.
PAG also offers a low-cost, ultra-compact, Micro Charger, which is the ideal travel partner. It can be powered form a variety of 5-20V DC power sources, which is ideal for location use.
Ergonomic & Durable
The MPL99V features an ergonomic design and a ‘soft-touch’ coated outer band for safer handling and increased durability. The battery case is manufactured from high-impact, injection-moulded ABS which is inherently very strong and flexible. The MPL99V has been designed to withstand the harshest working conditions.
Mini PAGlink batteries are the first to feature a new, fully-serviceable, modular construction that allows authorised replacement of the cell-pack whilst maintaining conformity with UN standards and IATA air transport regulations.
PAGlink battery firmware can be updated in the field by the user, in a matter of seconds, without opening the battery case. Updates enable you to benefit from the technological advances that PAG introduces to accommodate developments in camera technology.
Premier Quality Branded Li-Ion Cells
All PAG Li-Ion batteries feature long-life, premium-quality cells, which can be partially charged and discharged without suffering memory effect. In keeping with PAG’s total battery design philosophy, PAGlink batteries are constructed to provide the longest possible working life.
