Kino Flo Lighting Systems

Kino Flo/BlockBattery

Kino Flo Lighting Systems partners with BlockBattery for newly introduced KF21 (NiMH) battery systems for its LED line.  The Kino Flo/BlockBattery systems are designed to work with the following Kino Flo LED products with DC capability:

The KF21 battery can power 28.8V (20-34VDC) applications. Run time for Kino Flo products listed above is approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes at full brightness. When fixtures are dimmed, the battery will last longer.

Charge time is only 1.5 hours versus Lithium batteries that take approximately 4 hours to fully charge. Unlike lithium batteries, the Kino Flo/BlockBattery is also travel friendly with no travel restrictions BlockBattery Travel Documentation.

In addition to powering 28.8V, battery adapters may be used to access 14.4V to be used with products with 14.4V input. It’s like having two batteries for the price of one!

The Single Channel Fast Charger utilizes BlockBattery’s advanced microprocessor system and multi-level charge routines to quickly & safely, qualify, initiate and terminate charging of a nickel metal-hydride (NiMH) battery. It is designed to charge one Kino Flo/BlockBattery,

The Charger System, BAT-BC1U, includes a Single Fast Charger and universal power supply, 120W/48V with 3-Pin xlr.  Charge time is
1.5 hours.  Charge cycle is complete when all 3 LED’s are on steady.

Note:  For best long-term performance, avoid interrupting charge cycle during fast charge.  Avoid “top-off” charging a full battery just before use.  This is unnecessary and could elevate the voltage above equipment operating ranges and/or damage equipment being powered.



The Dual Charger System, BAT-BC2U, includes a dual fast charger and Universal power supply, 280W/48V with 3-pin xlr.
Dual Charger will charge 2 batteries in 1.5 hours.

For more information, see the Operation Manual.

Battery Mounts

BAT-MM1 Mafer Mount

The Kino Flo/BlockBattery system includes a Mafer Mount, BAT-MM1, with 28.8V output with 3-Pin xlr, 3ft. The battery slides onto the mount and mounts onto a Mafer clamp. The on/off switch can be used to disconnect power to reduce battery drain when 3-Pin xlr is plugged into fixture.

The 3-pin xlr cable connects to the Celeb 250, Diva-Lite 20/30, Diva-Lite 21, 31, 41, FreeStyle LED Controllers or Select LED Controller. 

BAT-MB1 Baby Mount

The BAT-MB1 is an optional Battery Mount.  It includes a 5/8” Baby Pin and Receiver (16mm) and 28V Output with 3-Pin xlr, 3ft.

The 5/8” baby receiver allows the battery mount to sit onto a baby stand.  Kino Flo mounts with baby receivers can be mounted onto the 5/8” baby pin.

Battery Adapters

Battery Adapters may be used to access 14.4V to be used with products that have 14.4V inputs:  BAT-BA Block/AB Gold Mount Adapter (14.4V Output); BAT-BV Block/V-Mount Adapter (14.4V Output).
