Edelkrone Pocket Slider with MoCo

First impression based on whats on the website is its very intuiting!

I wonder how its powered? I can see what looks like a DC jack on the side and possibly a battery compartment on the bottom but I cant be sure. Is the battery removable / rechargeable?

EDIT: Edelkrone’s İnanç has kindly chimed in with some answers, the pocket slider DOES have a battery compartment and it’s to house a 9V battery, due to the size of the Pocket Slider I’m guessing it’s a PP3 type battery which is a shame as nobody (least of all me) likes the PP3.

Surely something along the lines of a Canon LP-E6 or similar sized rechargable Lithium Ion chemistry battery would have been a much better choice?? It would be much better capacity for a start, 1800 mAh vs PP3’s 500 mAh (250 mAh at best for rechargeable). Then theres the convenience factor, most of us have these types of batteries already from using 5D, 7D, 60D and 70D etc.

PP3’s don’t transport well, they have large exposed terminals on one face which often short out against any conductive material and are then useless, and you will need a load of PP3’s due to their poor capacity performance they will be running out all the time. Luckily their is a DC jack to power the MoCo, not ideal but it does give a second power option.

I wonder what the mystery is surrounding the magnets that İnanç mentions as being a possible method of connection to the Pocket Slider? “It could be attached to the PocketSlider with the Magnets”. Maybe this is just a language issue.

Is the MoCo attached to the Pocket Slider purely by magnets?? Lots of questions and so far very little detailed information from Edelkrone! I am looking forward to seeing the new video they are currently working on.

  1. Hi David, PocketMoco uses 9V Batteries as power option, it could also be powered by DC Adapter. It could be attached to the PocketSlider with the Magnets. More details will be available with the Introduction Video which we are currently working on. If you have any questions feel free to contact us anytime via info@edelkrone.com – İnanç

    • Dear İnanç, thank you for taking the time to post your response to my questions. I for one an very excited about this product as it opens up the possibilities for smaller, more portable rigs yet maintaining high production values! Something that i think all of us want really. I am surprised you have opted for a 9V (presumably PP3) battery as these are notoriously low power, drain quickly and a widely available high capacity rechargeable version is not currently available. I would have thought a Canon LP-E6 type battery would have been a much much better choice surely?? Nonetheless I am very keen to see more specifications and videos that you are working on!! Best wished David
