The super-compact V-mount battery with 99 Wh capacity, PowerDelivery 65 W and Smart features
Mathorn MB-V99 Smart OLED V-mount PD65W is one of the most compact and functional V-mount batteries on the market. Its design uses eight high-performance LG lithium-ion cells with a total capacity of 6800 mAh and energy of 99 Wh.
Charge Mathorn batteries quickly, safely and conveniently using the V-Mount, D-TAP or USB-C port
In addition to its basic functionality resulting from the presence of a V-mount and two D-TAP connectors, the battery is equipped with two USB ports: type A (Out) and type C (In/Out).
The efficiency, and safety of the device is ensured by a microprocessor BMS system (Battery Management System), and a USB charging module with an OLED display reporting the current battery status.
All this is enclosed in a slim housing measuring only 10×7.5×5 cm and weighing 540 grams.
Still a V-Mount battery or maybe a power bank?
Regardless of the name used and the purpose, the term “Smart” in the context of the Mathorn MB-V99 battery is entirely appropriate. This ultra-compact, pocket-sized battery is more than just your typical V-mount battery with D-TAP connectors that we’re familiar with.
The presence of USB ports also doesn’t seem surprising until we delve into their specifications. The designers of the Mathorn MB-V99 battery have met the needs of modern users by equipping it with high-power USB ports that support popular fast-charging standards such as QuickCharge 3, Samsung AFC, Huawei FCP/SCP, and many more. The USB Type-A port in the battery provides up to 24 W of power and is solely used to power other devices. On the other hand, the bi-directional USB Type-C port operates in Power Delivery mode and is designed for both powering other devices and charging the MB-V99 battery itself, with a power of up to 65 watts in both directions.
In the case of the Mathorn MB-V99, you can forget about using a V-mount charger. A bidirectional USB Type-C port operating in PowerDelivery mode will allow you to use this battery as a super-efficient power bank, both in the studio and while traveling. It can be used to charge not only cameras, smartphones, or tablets but even laptops equipped with a USB-C charging function. The battery can be also excellent as a power source for LED lights up to 65 watts.
It’s worth mentioning that the Mathorn MB-V99 battery’s limited capacity of 99 Wh allows you to take it on board a commercial airline as carry-on luggage, complying with the requirements of most airlines.
Monitor energy flow with an OLED display
The battery features a monochromatic OLED graphic display with a resolution of 128×64, providing the current battery charge level in the form of a graphical scale, percentage, and cell voltage. Additionally, when a charger or energy receiver is connected to the battery, it displays the approximate time remaining for charging or discharging the battery.
A notable feature is the advanced monitoring function for the status of USB ports using the OLED display. It allows for a preview of the voltage, current, and power drawn from each USB port. This enables the user to better tailor the settings of connected devices to the battery’s performance and extend the operating time, for example, of an LED lamp on a single charge.

Warranty and safety
The battery’s operational period can involve various usage scenarios, which are not always optimal. For this reason, every Mathorn battery is equipped with all currently used active and passive protections, including overcurrent, overvoltage, short-circuit, and temperature protection. These protections reduce the risk of battery and connected device damage, extending the trouble-free operational period. As a result, each battery comes with a three-year warranty!
