6: Battery bracket:

HEQ5 Battery power cell's brackets

My idea is to clamp the battery to one of the legs to the mount. These two bracket hold in place, it also add a extra weight to the mount which is good for the stability.

The top bracket has a rectangular hole where a stripe can be inserted.

The battery installed on the leg with its brackets. Good, now I don't have to have the battery on the ground.

This is great, fits perfect in the bracket and it can't fall down in the ground. Easy to remove from the brackets too. Even more fantastic when I know this 3 kg battery replace a 20 kg car lead battery. The tripod is to the HEQ5 mount and it's shorted, its a low rider !
