    I've no first hand experience but I have heard you can use Canon LP-e6 batteries. You might want to verify that before purchasing

    Sony NP-F970 and you can use aftermarket battery from watson. If that monitor didn't come with battery charger you'll need one of those as well. The battery will last for 8 hours on a charge.

    Yes it does. I bought one for my video camera but never use on any of my monitors due to the weight. The weight N-975 is 289g and 12v battery i use for my monitor weighs 198 grams.and is good for 7 hours.

    Yes that monitor is a 12v system and the battery adapter has a power inverter so instead of 7.4 volts it supplies 12 volts and will cut the battery run time down from 8 hours. By how much time I have no idea as I never tested that adapter to see how long the battery would run a monitor.
