I also received the tiniest micro-aluminum heatsinks with them; if the new drivers generate less heat, they might work OK. For me, I'm going to use the much-larger blue aluminum heatsinks that I already know work fine with the older drivers. They are readily available on both Amazon and eBay; I paid $7.45US for 10; cheaper if you order from China and are willing to wait longer.

Note: this new BOM shows the new stepper drivers, but with the old blue aluminum heatsinks, not those much smaller ones you are actually shipping that I just received. Which ones are you going to standardize going forward on for the newer better stepper drivers? Thanks for clarifying.

The camera slider "needs" smooth motor drivers so we opted for the TMC2208. They are as accurate as the regular A4988 but they are silent and more smooth. Did you order the A4988? They will work but please notice this: the motors will spin in the opposite direction. We are just including the TMC2208 with the CAMERA SLIDER KIT

We recommend you a 12V or 9V battery holder with the regular 5.5mm connector, like this one:
https://www.amazon.com/5-5x2-1mm-Connect...742&sr=8-6

Or if you are planning to connect it to your car battery, use this one: https://www.amazon.com/12V-24V-Charger-P...252&sr=8-1

We will add a battery holder to the KIT asap. Would you like to get one from us (a 9V, 6xAA batteries)?
I am using this battery pack. : https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/329887903...web201603_
Been testing yesterday and got around 1 hour of footage, without draining the battery pack. But you can get a 20000mah for 23 euro so that is pretty nice.

Thanks for the link. We just got one! :-)

This is the rechargeable Li-ion battery from Amazon I use to power my slider:
