We've been out testing and tuning the BeeWorks 5 stabilizer and Kinetic Remote in preperation for shipping. In the process, we've generated some cool footage that we wanted to share. Check it out:

We initialially advertized an expected battery life of "about an hour."
This week, we have been doing more precise testing of the battery life. This test consisted of a Sony A7 camera in a cage. We excersized the stabilizer with the Kinetic Remote and also moved the stand throughout the test.
In our test, the stabilizer performed at a high level for just over 2 hours and 30 minutes before the safety systems disabled the motors.
You actual battery life will vary depending on factors such as the weight of the camera / lens combo and the use of accessories that draw power. However, we feel confident that most customers will get well over 2 hours of continuous stabilizer use out of each charge.
If you are interested in purchasing extra batteries. We are now selling them at our web store.
