This B&H Kit includes two 85Wh HyperCore Slim HC8 RED V-Mount Batteries and the simultaneous Fleet D Dual Charger from Core SWX.

The HyperCore Slim HC8 RED battery features high-density HyperCore cells, which were originally developed for a high-draw military application. The HyperCore Slim HC8 RED is made specifically for RED cameras, to communicate directly with the camera and deliver the exact percentage of remaining capacity to the camera's VF/LCD. This battery combines the best of the full-size HyperCore battery and the slimmer HyperCore Slim battery, and also incorporates a more angular design. The result is the ability to handle 10A draws for extended periods, a large LCD, and a small-enough size to be ideal for UAV, gimbal, and other low-profile applications. The HyperCore Slim HC8 RED has a sleek design, anti-impact housing, rubberized exterior, reliable readout computer, advanced hibernation feature, safety sensors, and much more. Based on a 25W load, the HyperCore Slim has a projected run-time of approximately 3.2 hours.

The Fleet D can recharge both HyperCore Slim HC8 RED batteries in about 2.5 hours. This charger has a robust all-aluminum, stackable design and a recessed carry handle allowing for portability.

  • 2 x Core SWX HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED 14.8V 85Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (V-Mount)

    The Core SWX HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED is a V-mount battery designed specifically to RED's communication protocol. It's made to deliver the exact percentage of remaining capacity to RED viewfinders/LCDs. It can be used on non-RED cameras as well, but you will only be able to get basic information communicated to the viewfinder.

    The HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED is a remodeled and upgraded follow-up to the original HyperCore SLIM RED. It's still slim, but has an angular and sleeker body, and features a large, advanced LCD right on the front like the very first, non-slim HyperCore does. Moreover, the LCD is also upgraded with a white LED backlight. The HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED is designed for applications requiring a low-profile battery, including UAV and gimbal applications. It's slim enough to clear the rails of most gimbals.

    With an 85Wh capacity, the HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED is also TSA-friendly, falling under the 98Wh air travel limitations, and this is reinforced by the "Air Travel Compliant" logo on the front of the battery. So you can bring as many with you in carry-on luggage as you need. At the same time, this slim version also retains all the major features of the original HyperCore battery, most notably the HyperCore cells, which provide the ability to handle 10A draws for extended periods without diminishing in service life, so you can rely on the battery for a long time. Additionally, being such a workhorse, the battery is perfectly suitable for the RED Scarlet, Epic, Weapon, and likely any other camera we can expect from RED in the near future.

    The LCD is located on the most practical part of the battery for it, right on the front. Behind this LCD is a fuel computer that takes an aggregate view of past usage and charge/discharge performance and delivers a run time that's accurate down to the minute. When the battery is in use, run-time is provided in hours and minutes. When the battery is in stand-by mode, an estimate is provided based on a dummy load of 30W, and when the battery is charging a percentage readout of remaining charge time is displayed.

    Other features include 1,000 charge/discharge cycles, safety sensors, D-tap output, advanced hibernation feature, quick-glance 4-LED gauge on the side, and charge routine management. The cells are housed in an over-molded, rubberized housing that both protects against impacts as well as provides an ergonomic, non-slip handle. Based on a 25W load, the HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED is estimated to run for approximately 3.4 hours.

    The hibernation feature was designed to minimize issues resulting from self-discharge, and to preserve state of charge, leaving you making fewer trips to the charger. This feature consists of an accelerometer tied to a clocking algorithm that gauge inactivity and trigger a deep sleep after 48 hours of continuous non-use. Upon the slightest movement, the battery comes back to life at maximum capacity.

    The HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED will charge on your RED charger, as well as IDX, Sony, and Core SWX V-mount chargers, making it a very charger-compatible battery and allowing you to keep any compatible charger you may already own.

    Note: The HyperCore SLIM HC8 RED can be used on non-RED cameras as well, but you will only be able to get basic information communicated to the viewfinder.
