The Core SWX Two Hypercore NEO Slim 98Wh Li-Ion Battery Kit with 2-Bay Charger has been assembled by B&H to provide you with a versatile, portable V-mount battery kit for powering your digital cinema camera. It includes two Hypercore Neo Slim 98Wh lithium-ion V-mount batteries and a compact 2-bay vertical simultaneous charger. The included V-mount batteries feature a slim 1.5" thick design, a large LCD info screen, an RFID info system compatible with the VoltBridgeID iOS app or an RFID reader, and each battery supports a 12A continual and 16A peak draw.
The included Core SWX X2A charger can simultaneously charge the two included batteries at 2A. If you only need to charge a single battery, then you can take advantage of the charger's rapid-charge bay to charge a single 98Wh battery in under 2.5 hours. The charger also features a 90W power output that can be used to power your camera or lighting units when not charging batteries.
The Hypercore NEO Slim 98Wh Lithium-Ion Battery from Core SWX is a compact 14.8V, 98Wh lithium-ion V-mount battery that supports a constant 12A draw and peak draw of 16A. With this high output, the battery is designed for cine and broadcast applications, but, of course, it can be used for virtually all other applications as well. At only 1.5" thin and weighing just 1.4 lb, it's also highly suited for gimbal, drone, and other mobile applications. The Hypercore NEO Slim has the ergonomic design, large backlit LCD, and protective over-molded rubberized housing that Hypercore batteries have come to be known for over their past releases.
Like previous Hypercores, the battery is microprocessor-driven, ensuring safety and runtime delivery to camera viewfinders or LCDs; but, leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO Slim features an RFID transmitter on the front that lets you monitor the stored battery data via Core SWX's VoltBridgeID iOS app or an RFID reader. Furthermore, the battery has a modular design consisting of less cabling, allowing for increased quality. With the different parts installed separately and securely inside the housing, the chance of failure is reduced in case of drops, and servicing the battery becomes a simpler, more efficient process as the different parts install plug-and-play.
In addition to the large LCD, the Hypercore NEO Slim has an LED gauge on the side where the user can easily glance over at it. Other features include 2000 charge/discharge cycles, hibernation mode, and the ability to communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one-wire and two-wire protocols. Such an advanced battery wouldn't be complete without peripheral support. The Hypercore NEO Slim provides a SmartTap D-Tap port and a USB port for powering/charging devices. The SmartTap port lets you power any 12 VDC accessory and transmit battery data if the accessory is able to communicate that information.
The Hypercore Slim is also widely compatible with many different chargers. This V-mount version is compatible with RED, IDX, and Sony V-mount chargers, among others.
Charge your V-Mount batteries while on-the-go with the Core SWX X2S 2-Bay Vertical V-Mount Battery Charger. Taking advantage of the same technology built into the larger fleet chargers, this slim charger can charge a single battery at a 3-amp rate or batteries in both bays simultaneously at 2 amps. Since it sits vertically with two batteries mounted, the X2S takes up less space than traditional chargers. With its 4-pin XLR output, the X2S also does double duty as a 90W power supply for cameras, lights, or other equipment that can draw from a 4-pin XLR.
