The AXIOM Beta developer kits ship with 5V DC power supply.
AXIOM Beta takes two 5V inputs (1x Microzed, 1x rest of electronics) and together draws 4A max, power consumption depends on operation and is in the 10-20 W range typically.
Two 5V 2.5A output converters should be suitable.
For batteries both isolated as well as non-isolated DC converters are suitable.

Battery mount for NP-F970/F750/F550 batteries to power the AXIOM Beta. Includes power usage and capacity monitoring to estimate remaining charge and time remaining.
Proprietary protocol from Sony that exchanges metadata between batteries and devices. Expected data inside the protocol includes: charge cycles, battery ID, remaining total capacity, remaining current capacity, etc. Only official Sony batteries incorporate this protocol, cheap replacement parts don't and some Pro Sony cameras refuse operation with batteries without InfoLithium communication.
Decrypting this protocol could give us more insight into the battery but is not essential as we can measure the discharge curve and estimate remaining capacity rather accurately that way.
With batteries the conveniences are being able to:
