Bryan,

your question is a bit confusing. Are you asking if you want to power the ALEXA Mini from the Ronin batteries?
The WCU-4 is the wireless remote, it is powered through it's own battery and would not be attached to the ronin..

You can power the MINI from a Ronin Series - Battery Power Distributor through P-Tap directly from the Ronin Battery. You´ll need the distributor and plenty of Ronin intelligent batteries to get you through the day.

You´re gonna need a proper ARRI Alexa Mini D-Tap Power Cable such as the Freefly or Wooden Camera ones. I recommend the braided angle version of wooden. There´s a short and long version.

You can't power the WCU4 through P-Tap though, not that I know of. You could power it via the Hand Unit AC Power Supply HPS-1 K2.0000425 but not from a P-Tap. It would undermine the wireless capabilities of the unit a bit though.

Best!
