PocketWizard announces new Nikon power cable


PocketWizard announced a new Nikon power cable for use with the MiniTT1, Plus III and MultiMAX radio triggers. The price of the cable is $19.95.

Press release:


So. Burlington, VT – June 19, 2013 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, announces the immediate availability of a new Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) for use with the PocketWizard MiniTT1 Transmitter, the Plus III and MultiMAX (version with USB port) Transceivers and any Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera equipped with a Nikon 10-pin remote terminal. The new cable provides a PocketWizard radio, mounted in the camera’s hot-shoe, the power it needs to operate from the camera.

By using the tidy (6-inch long) power cable, Nikon users ensure that their PocketWizard radio is ready when they need it because the camera keeps the Transmitter/Transceiver always awake for the fastest reaction time. And, since these PocketWizard radios use very little power, it has almost no impact on a camera’s battery life. This is especially helpful for users of the MiniTT1, whose coin-cell battery can be hard-to-find when needed.

The Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) is available now at an estimated retail price of $20.00. Additional information about this new cable and other PocketWizard accessories can be found on the PocketWizard website, here.

    As someone who has had my pocketwizard mini die on me mid-wedding, I am buying this ASAP

    Sure! That will give Nikon a very good excuse to justify their typical fall of the 10-pin connector inside the body, void the warranty and charge us for the repair.

  • Doug B

    Hmmm, that Pocketwizard cable does not look like it would work really well for photographers using their pocketwizard to trigger their Nikon camera by using the 10-pin socket, which is what I’d want it for. 🙁

    It is a LOT easier to replace the battery in a trigger on a local camera, it is a LOT HARDER to replace the PW battery on a remote mount/remote trigger camera, where that cable would REALLY be helpful.

      Solmeta makes Y splitters for the 10 pin connector; you can have your cake and eat it too!

  • John

    You kind of wonder why pocket wizard didn’t place the hole on the other side of the device, closer to the 10 pin connector…

    • Aldo

      I don’t think they foresaw their cool little battery be a little inconvenience to some photographers..

      • Graham

        Because it would then get in the way of the camera settings dial

  • Aldo

    too late… sold it and just got another flextt5… didn’t take me long to realize that little battery was gonna get me in trouble.

      “… especially helpful for users of the MiniTT1, whose coin-cell battery can be hard-to-find…”

      Which makes it a risk for shooting in the field, and getting sued by the client. I’ll stick with Flex TT5’s and old-school PW Plus II’s.

    This is going to save me a lot of hassle not having to change batteries. I have my Plus III mounted on my D3’s left side using an RRS mini clamp attached to the D3’s L-plate, and changing batteries is time consuming with that setup. Price could’ve been a little friendlier.

  • Alberto T.

    Thinking about it some more, PW could’ve “knocked two birds” with a single cable for power AND sync/remote.

    • autofocus

      I agree. Now you have to choose between the two.

  • Sahaja

    Wish Nikon would just figure out a way to build a radio trigger into the camera – so we wouldn’t need these wires and gizmos.

    • Matthew Fleisher

      Um…I think they do.

  • Jon

    A great backup to have in the bag, if my battery goes just plug in the cable. Just ordered two of them. I get the coin battery by the dozen from Amazon about a buck each.

  • Carlos

    Are there adapters that fit later bodys that don’t have the 10 pin terminal?
