That’s why Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, designed the DIONIC 90 to deliver consistently reliable performance even in the most challenging shooting environments on Earth.
