Phoenix, Arizona, February 25, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Tether Tools® new Case Relay External Power System introduces the first uninterruptible power system for DSLR and Mirrorless cameras to achieve consistent power with any common 5V USB battery pack or wall power. This technology provides, for the first time ever, a hot swappable, uninterrupted power source for most DSLR and Mirrorless cameras on the market today.
Case Relay meets the demands of filmmakers and photographers for whom consistent camera uptime is critical. Stopping video or photo production to remove cameras from stands to change batteries is a challenge of the past. Case Relay’s secondary 1,200 mAh charge, means you can swap out power sources mid-shoot and maintain 100% uptime.
"The Case Relay Power System is perfect for time-lapse photography, photo booths, video production, power-hungry LiveView shooting or any long day on the set," said Josh Simons, Tether Tools Founder. "To a photographer or filmmaker, Case Relay means you will never run out of power and won't need to stress about remembering to charge and bring extra camera batteries on every shoot."

Case Relay is compatible currently with many Canon, Nikon, Sony and Panasonic cameras and can be powered by any 5V USB power bank and/or any 2.1+A USB Wall Adapter. A Relay Camera Coupler is required for the camera being powered with Case Relay.
How does it work?
A Relay Camera Coupler is inserted directly into their camera battery port, then connected to the Case Relay CPS. The Case Relay connects directly to any standard 5V external battery (commonly known as a portable USB charger, widely available at most stores or via TetherTools.com) or an AC power source, such as a wall outlet or generator.
With Case Relay’s own secondary, internal 1200 mAh battery, if the photographer’s external battery pack runs low it’s easy to hot swap the external battery and not lose power to the camera. With the Rock Solid External Battery Pack (10,000 mAh) from Tether Tools, photographers will be able to shoot considerably longer than with a standard camera battery. A 10,000 mAh external battery will provide 3-10 times the power of most camera batteries, depending on the camera.
When access to AC wall power is convenient, simply plug the case relay cable into an AC Wall Adapter (sold separately) for an infinite power source (USB Active Extensions can be used for added distance.

The Case Relay Camera Power System will debut at Tether Tools Booth #1601 at WPPI March 7-9. The complete Case Relay Camera Power System and Accessories are available at www.TetherTools.com and from Tether Tools’ Authorized Resellers.
