Capture Power So You Can Capture the Moment

SimpliPhi was founded in 2002 as LibertyPak, a company focused on providing off-grid power for movie and television productions. More than 15 years later, we continue to provide reliable, non-toxic power to the entertainment industry.

Our LibertyPaks and LibertyBelts have been widely used on movies and television shows, such as 30 Rock, Mad Men and more recently Inside Amy Schumer. James Cameron’s Cameron-Pace production company used LibertyPaks on both Avatar and Tron Legacy. In fact, the lights built into the Tron Legacy suits are powered by LibertyPak. Director of Photography Roger Deakins, famous for his cinematography in James Bond’s Skyfall, True Grit, No Country for Old Men, Jarhead and others, uses SimpliPhi batteries on all of his films.
