At Cine Gear 2014, Switronix showed the updated version of their popular Jetpack breakout box – the Jetpack X. The Jetpack X builds on the features of the original Jetpack, but adds a built-in battery backup capable of withstanding a 200w load for up to five minutes, even when batteries are not connected. It is also incredibly versatile, featuring three LEMO outputs (5V, 7V, 12V), a USB power connection, and two unregulated powertaps, along with a 2-pin Amp connector (located behind the included cheese plate) that can connect directly to ENG cameras. Watch my video above as Jose Flores from Switronix walks me through the features of the new Jetpack X.
