Firmware >3.0 – SmallHD – Instructional – How to read Voltage; when to change the battery
When reading voltage, how do I know when to change the battery?
IF using OEM batteries (Sony/ canon) there is a low Battery warning that will appear and this can be relied upon.
If using any aftermarket/ non OEM battery 6v is the recommended change out voltage.
When using dual battery: You can also watch the voltage meters as the firmware pulls form one battery until it hits its threshold is too low and it will jump to the other one. The first one can then be changed (its voltage may jump up slightly when the monitor switches).
