The QR-HSGM is a Universal Hot-Swap battery mount. Utilizing the Gold Mount, battery-mounting system, the QR-HSGM can be attached to any portable device with an existing Gold Mount bracket. The “Hot-Swap” design allows the QR-HSGM to mount two fully charged *batteries simultaneously. Either battery can be changed-out for a fully-charged battery at any time. The QR-HSGM offers true perpetual power, by allowing the operator to “swap-out” a battery with low available capacity, with a fully charged battery, without having to power-down the equipment.
