Portable Power Solution

Review by Gilmar Smith

A few months ago, Tether Tools added to its line of products a portable power solution for photographers and filmmakers to use either in the studio or on the go. The ONsite Pro Bundle comes with an ONsite D-Tap Battery with V-Mount, an ONsite D-Tap to AC Power Supply, an ONsite Aero V-Mount, and a free ONsite AC Power Supply Car Adapter. 

The ONsite D-Tap rechargeable LG lithium-ion battery is travel-friendly—it’s TSA-approved and you can take up to two of these on a flight in your carry-on luggage—and it has a built-in 2.1 A USB power output. The ONsite D-Tap to AC Power Supply comes with four USB ports, allowing you to charge devices such as phones and tablets, and two AC outlets that can be used to charge a computer, camera batteries, plug-in LED lights, monitors, etc. There’s a US 110V version, and a universal 220V version. 

The included ONsite Aero V-Mount allows you to mount the ONsite D-Tap Battery or any other V-mount battery under a Tether Table Aero laptop mounting system for easy access. This enables you to keep your laptop and other devices charged throughout a photo shoot. 

Lastly, the free ONsite AC Power Supply Car Adapter allows you to plug in your ONsite D-Tap Battery to your vehicle’s DC lighter socket and charge it on the go, or simply use it to supply power to your computers while in your car. 

The ONsite Pro Bundle is the perfect worry-free, portable power solution, so you can have your devices charged at all times, no matter where you are. It integrates perfectly with other Tether Tools products, making your workstation very powerful and effective. ■
