    well you could do it 2 ways. Either use the dtap which is the full battery voltage into the expansion port or you could see if it's possible to modify a LP-E6 dummy battery to be thin enough to fit between the plate and the camera, then have that either plug into the plates 7.2v dc or wire it internally into it.

    I've emailed swit to ask if the 7.2v ptap really does step down the voltage of the 14.4v battery. If it does and I wanted to get real fancy i guess i could even plastic fuse the actual dummy batter into the back of the vmount plate. it's just have to be in the absolute correct position. while it'd probably look nice and neat the major downside is if you ever want to use the vmount on rails as a counter weight then you'd still need some type of cord.

    Also Hypercore 9 Mini V-Mt compact size V-mount batetry (3.54” x 4.65” x 1.90”)

    Also how about Sony BP seres? Those compact 14.4V batteries and there are a lot of lightweight mounting plates for them.

    I wrote about battery mounting in other thread bot copy it here as well.
    I was thinking this plate can fit http://www.smallrig.com/smallrig-easy-plate-1598.html but it don't
    This is odd mistake in cage design. Distance between rear threaded sides don't fits to common 9mm holes pitch. Only custom made cheese plate will fit.

    I thought about using sony BP batteries but I'm not sure if it's the same for anywhere else or just Australia, the price is actually crazy. 400 dollars for a bp-u60. I prefer the vmount form factor.

    I continued my search and found this - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Sony-V-M...UAAOSwiONYN~GA

    Now I can't seem to see it's dimension (found them "Dimension:57mm X 107mm") but it appears to be a good size going off the pictures, plus i could easily drill any new holes into it since it's metal. A lot more basic and would only work via the expansion port or AC port on the smallhd/VA.

    anyone see any reason why this wouldn't work?

    After knowing the dimensions the first issue i can see is that at 57mm it wont be wide enough to bolt into the rear of the cage by itself, so you'd need a cheese plate to widen it (or something similar). Second would be that the power cables coming out of the bottom is not ideal, there isn't really a tidy way to feed the cables around as the camera sits flush with the bottom of the cage.

    edit - Just thought that assuming I don't have an LP-E6 mounted I could run the cables through the gap, that would be quite neat.

    edit - something like this cheese bar may be good to line up with the existing mounting points on the adaptor http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CAMVATE-B...UAAOSw4DJYfxf2

    The good part of your idea Shijan is that we would be able to mount an LP-E6 and trickle charge it as a safety if the v mount battery runs out. But for the moment I may use it without an LP-E6.

    @shijan the Sony plate is great. I use it periodically
    @tmronin this would be ideal for $6.5(
    @Ryanite nice finding!

    Ryanite , sure, if you don't plane to use LP-E6 battery as backup battery, you can remove 11mm height washers and mount rear plate directly to the cage.
    Here is example how it may look with ANSSO V-Mount plate attached and Hypercore 9 Mini V-mount battery.
    BTW ANSSO website http://www.anssotech.com/accessory.htm

    not disagreeing with you (that's sorta why I build my cables when I can), but if you really want to twitch - go look at RED branded cable prices.
