This small, lightweight device is designed for photographers with the plan to provide a constant power supply to a DSLR or mirrorless camera.

It also can power up a dew heater by varying the duty cycle of the DC voltage (PWM control). It is definitely a perfect buddy for your DSLR in the mountains and in any astro-photographic field.

With this dummy battery and the built-in Dew Heater Output, nothing can stop your camera from working for the whole night long! A unique product for time-lapses and astrophotography (deep sky, star trails, etc).


Automatic Voltage Selection

Device automatically and uninterruptibly selects the highest voltage input (DC IN vs USB-C socket).

Simple Rotary Knob Control

You can manually dim the Dew Heater output by using the knob at the side of the DSLR Buddy. A red light (PWM duty cycle indicator) change its brightness when you adjust the dew knob.

Reverse Polarity Protection

The device is designed to be protected from reverse voltage polarity. No worries if you accidentally reverse connect your power source.

Constant Power Supply to DSLR Camera

Plug the dummy battery to your DSLR and forget to replace the battery every time it drains of power.

Connect a 5- 15V power supply to the DSLR buddy and power on your camera with stable and constant voltage for the whole night long!

Either use the DC socket or the USB-C socket. Use your Power Bank to step up the voltage (to 8Volts) for your camera.

Built in Single Channel RCA Dew Heater Output

DSL Buddy has a built-in Pulse Width Modulation duty cycle control output for Dew Heater or Flatbox.

The device provides more than 5A of current to your dew heater strip. Get rid of the moisture on your camera lens which will definitely ruin your night!
