Review: Mozegear QbitXL

MozeGear has now upped the battery size of their Qbit. So what’s different in the XL model?

They have redone the case to be bigger. It now features a 1/4 size hole for mounting the unit to a cameras cheese plate instead of just using velcro. This is a huge ergonomic boost to the Mozegear product lineup that we can hope to see more of from them going forward. This is also a feature that no one else in the micro TC box world is doing.

The bigger improvement is the battery life. Originally only getting 4hr the new model now can run for 30hrs. What’s really going on here? Well the designers at Mozegear probably sourced a bigger Li-Ion pouch cell. And given the dial for the 0-7 settings has moved they probably also did a PCB redesign to fit the new bigger chassis.

Both of these new improvements are welcomed! The QbitXL shows us that the team behind Mozegear is listening and wants to make a product we want.
