    Hello,

    I was wondering if it is possible to power a ursa mini pro from a v-lock battery through dtap with the following cable?

    Yes you can, but d-tap directly from a battery is unregulated and therefore not recommended.

    Is there another cable that should work better? I want to power my ursa mini pro with a cable from a vmount battery(dji ronin)

    the DJI Ronin DTAP is Regulated 12v... To use Dtap from a Vmount you should buy a DTAP regulator

    ok thanks, and what about something that cliks on the v-mount normal power supply does that exist? As I would not only use it on a ronin, but also a glidecam, and probably other uses in the future.

    Glad I read this as I have been sorting a lightweight setup for my 4.6k. I have been testing with a direct p tap to the 4 pin input :/
    Any idea if the regulated 12v ronin mx power would work if I bought the big battery? As a side note a v lock male to female extension cable would be worth developing as poloroid22 points out.

    You can get a V mount plate and just connect in the dtap to that.

    Thanks Jason, forgive me for not understanding your answer clearly, to power my 4.6k on a ronin mx; currently I am taking my battery off the camera and plugging a d-tap to 4 pin XLR cable directly to the cameras 4pin xlr input, as pointed out earlier this is dangerous to the camera so I won't do that again.
    So in order to get power from my v-lock battery to the REGULATED v-lock input on the 4.6k I see I need a 'female' v-lock connection on a cable or could I plug into the d-tap on my 4.6k battery plate? but I figure this is only meant as output?
    The alternative is forget my v-lock battery for gimbal use and utilise the 12v regulated ronin mx d-tap with the addition of the largest second battery you can get for a ronin which is 4350mah, will that work? If anyone has any ideas they would be really appreciated.

    This will give you v mount to Dtap https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...bon_fiber.html

    I I just use the Dtap on my full size Ronin with my URSA mini 4k but the ursa mini pro draws more power.

    Thanks Jason. I have the original 4.6 so it may work for me too. Will get googling.
