Whether you’re a photographer who shoots mostly on location or in-studio, there’s one common thing for both—the need for power. ONsite power solutions harness the power of high capacity D-Tap batteries to charge AC and USB powered devices such as laptops, camera batteries, LED monitors and lights, tablets, phones and more.

D-Tap (aka P-Tap) batteries are the photo and video industry standard portable power source. These batteries, in the past, have been used to power broadcast video cameras, large lights and monitors. These versatile batteries are popular due to their long-lasting high capacity, compact lightweight design and many are TSA compliant for airline travel. The Tether Tools Onsite Power system has harnessed this battery technology and designed a power system to charge laptop computers, camera batteries and other equipment photographers need on a shoot. The non-proprietary D-Tap batteries standard is tried and true and can be purchased or rented from any pro camera or video store.

Whether you’re on-location or in the studio, we’ve got the perfect ONsite bundles that will cater to your power and setup needs.

For the On-Location Photographer

The ONsite Aero V-Mount Complete Bundle offers an integrated Tether Table Aero mounting solution for the ONsite D-Tap to AC Power Supply and V-Mount Battery. Power your laptop with this easily interchangeable battery system during long shoots while keeping an organized, safe and professional workstation.

When paired with any standard D-Tap battery the ONsite D-Tap to AC Power Supply provides four fast-charging USB ports and two AC outlets to charge devices such as laptops, camera batteries, LED monitors and lights, tablets, phones and more – wherever power is needed.

The ONsite D-Tap to USB-C Adapter connects directly to the Onsite D-Tap Battery and provides 108W of power, enough to charge any USB-C Apple MacBook, laptop or other USB-C and USB-A devices such as tablets, phones, and select cameras.

Charge your laptop, camera batteries or even recharge your D-Tap Batteries when you’re on the go using the ONsite AC Power Supply Car Adapter for use with any automobile DC 12V outlet.

For the In-Studio Photographer

The ONsite Versa V-Mount Complete Bundle helps keep your set tidy, safe and provide power wherever it’s needed. The ONsite Versa Mount and Rock Solid Master Clamp secures your AC Power Supply and ONsite D-Tap Battery with V-Mount to any tripod, lightstand, pole, cart or c-stand. When movement is a must, the ONsite Versa V-Mount can be held or combined with a carrying strap; making your ONsite power bundle completely mobile.

Similar to the Aero Bundle, the ONsite D-Tap Battery secures to the Versa V-Mount quick release plate. The ONsite Versa Mount system can then be mounted to any 5/8”(16mm) Baby Stud or connected to any flat or round surface like a stand, tripod, cart using the included Rock Solid Master Clamp.

This bundle also includes a U.S. ONsite Angled Plug Adapter to reduce the need for long cords when charging camera batteries.

If you’re looking for the ultimate in power setups, take a look at our ONsite Power Bundles that cater to the photographer who doesn’t want the worry or stress of being without power as well as having a robust setup that will help your tethered workflow.

The ONsite Aero V-Mount Bundle and ONsite Versa V-Mount Bundle, both available in the 110V version (for US-based users) and 220V (for international users), can be purchased through the Tether Tools site.
