The Remote Audio Hi-Q smart batteries are available in a full-size version with a capacity of 98-Watt hours, and the half-size version with a capacity of 49-Watt hours. The Hi-Q batteries are smart. This means they have sophisticated circuitry that balances the charging and discharging of the internal cells, and communicate with their chargers and the devices they are powering. They are also small and light-weight, and they last a long time. In fact, at 98 Watt-hours, the full size Hi-Q has 30-percent more capacity than a lithium NP-1, while being smaller and lighter.
The Hi-Q batteries use the Inspired Energy standard contact configuration, so they are interchangeable with products made for this standard, such as the Cantar X3 and Sonosax SX-R4+ recorders. Other equipment manufacturers will likely soon follow.
