    Core SWX Prime reviews

    HyperCore Prime 190Wh Gold Mount Li-Ion Battery Pack is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Battery on the Market Bought two of these for the high capacity and travel ability. I had the intention of buying many more, but after a few days of use, one of the batteries started loosing communication between the two halves. Sometimes it would fail to charge and power a camera. After clicking it apart and back together a few times, it would eventually start working again. Took nearly a year to get an RMA from Core! I sent it back a few weeks ago and every time I call they say they've sent it back to me... Anyway, one of the gold studs has broken off the second battery due to it's very poor build quality.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in this item I purchased two of these. One of them had a non working LED indicator light. When you pressed the battery indicator button, the fourth light (of five) would not illuminate. Not a big deal but shouldn't happen with a brand new battery from the factory. Furthermore, when you shook the battery it sounded like there was something loose and rattling around inside. The second battery, once charged, made a rather loud continuous ticking/beeping sound. It's quite audible if you hold the battery up to your ear. And it's continuous. Far from ideal if you are planning to travel. Imagine trying to explain to TSA that it's normal for the battery to make a continuous ticking sound. I'm returning both. Finally, the buyer should understand that each half of the battery needs to be carried in a separate bag in order to be TSA compliant. I did not realize this until after I purchased the batteries and read it in the manual.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Experience I have bought a fair amount of Li-ion batteries in the past (Hawk-Woods, SWIT, IDX, etc.) and all of them worked straight out of the box once I charged them. Keeping those experiences (of using batteries straight out of the box) in mind I invested in 2 Hypercores & 1 X2A charger for my Varicam LT right before I embarked for an international shoot in India. BIG MISTAKE The charger never worked on one side straight out of the box. Only the rapid charge side of the charger worked. Even the light indicating that battery was installed would never turn on. After the first charge (around 7-8 hours) of one battery in the rapid charge side I swapped it out with the other empty one. After two sessions of (7-8 hours) of continuous charge the battery would just not charge again. Since the batteries were purchased in the US I could not even return them to the local SWIT dealer and get a replacement. None of the local shipping services would accept the batteries due to shipping restrictions. I could not even send the faulty batteries back to B&H under their 30-day return period. Thankfully I was able to find some contacts of some personal friends who were willing to carry them back with them to the US. Since these contacts were not connected to the film industry they had a tough time taken the batteries through screening stations at each juncture of their return trip (total of 3 times) I am really surprised that such gross malfunctions happened to multiple items. How did these units pass QC in the first place? I thought CORE was a respectable & reliable company (having checked their products out at NAB & Cinegear in 2017) and now I had to buy a battery & charger solution from an even more suspect brand in India to solve this really messed up situation. Never experienced such levels of problems in any of those other brands I mentioned. I was hoping that CORE could make an exception by replacing my faulty battery & charger with a working one through their local re-seller, but that was not forthcoming. Hard for me to recommend them to someone else after such a harrowing experience.
