How would you like to a way to use the Insta360 One R vertical battery more quickly, with better safety, and with additional features?  Here’s a hands-on preview of the Ulanzi cage for the One R Vertical Battery.

The Insta360 One R vertical battery is an accessory that enables you use the One R vertically.  Its primary purpose is to use the One R with the Aerial Edition or with the Dive Case.  However, several users prefer this vertical form factor.  However, the One R vertical battery does have some disadvantages:

  • The One R with vertical battery can easily fall apart unless it is held together by the vertical battery bumper, a plastic frame that goes around the One R with vertical battery.
  • The vertical battery bumper is a bit inconvenient to install and remove.
  • The vertical battery bumper blocks access to the USB port.
  • The vertical battery does have a passthrough USB port but the port is only for charging and cannot be used for data transfer, nor can it be used with the microphone adapter.
  • Cannot access the Micro SD card without removing the vertical bumper and vertical battery.

Here’s a hands-on preview by Yuqing Guo. The first part is about the vertical battery base. The second part is about the cage.

The Ulanzi cage has several features:

  • It is easy to install or remove.
  • The USB port is accessible, unlike the vertical battery bumper.
  • There are two cold shoes for accessories such as LED lights or microphones.
  • It has a metal 1/4-20 tripod hole.

According to Yuqing, the cage will be available in a few weeks.  I look forward to it and will be ordering one for myself.

  • I am really impressed by how Ulanzi is going along with all of Yuqing Guo’s concepts and ideas for the One R and Qoocam and coming up with new designs in a matter of weeks. Hopefully, when (or if…) the 3D edition comes along, Yuqing Guo will have some similar ideas and Ulanzi will produce a metal cage for that version as well ! 🙂
