  1. Just to follow-up. I ended up sending the batteries to John Ritter in Florida. He had them repacked with fresh cells and returned within the week. Great service, very reasonable price (~$200/battery) compared to the other options that were available. Ritter does a pro job, the batteries came back better than new, with a guarantee. Other solutions that surfaced - Oppenheimer Camera (Seattle) - Marty designed and built an adapter/converter for gold mount/v-mount batteries that is elegant and beautiful, and very expensive (~$3,000).

I've called all the usual rental companies with no success. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Lighting kit comprises of one 4x4 Kino (tungsten), 3 650W and 2 300W Arri fresnels. Shooting in a 20 x 30 foot studio with table in the center. Want the table well lit with pretty immediate fall off so that the table is the 'island' and the edges of room fall off into darkness.
