POWER Power you can rely on. .heroimage {width : 100%}


Forget the extra screens and buttons. With a simple lightweight design, BCB batteries get the job done without the extra weight.

 Drop Resistent

Built to keep up with you and withstand drops of over 5ft, so you can focus on what matters most to capturing the perfect shot.

Built to Last

Made with the same Sanyo cell core as the leading brands so you get the same power and quality, at a fraction of the cost.


As a director of photography, if I don’t get the shot, I’ve failed. Equipped with BCB batteries, I am assured I will always have reliable power in the most grueling situations.

I mean I wouldn’t say they’re indestructible, but they are darn strong! You can drop them on the ground and not worry about breaking them – pretty impressive!

We believe in the power of creativity and its ability to unite people.

Simplicity is the best way to achieve the extraordinary and at BCB we work on infusing this in everything we do.

Starting in 2000, BCB CEO and technologist Mate Gyorffy partnered with longtime friend Kei Tsuzuki to bring low cost onboard batteries to customers across Asia. Finding success selling through OEMs, Mate brought the company to the US and Europe in 2007. Since then, our batteries have become a trusted staple to many entertainment industry professionals worldwide, even being used in the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. The company was finally brought under the recognizable bright blue brand name Broadcast Camera Batteries (BCB) in 2014.


    From our products to the interactions with customers, simple practices are what we’re all about!


    We believe in keeping a fun, light-hearted, creative energy in everything that we do.


    No gimmicks. No bells and whistles. Just real people helping to power your creativity.
