Core SWX Fleet Micro 3A Digital Dual Charger for V-Mount Batteries
Featuring two independent charge bays, the Core SWX Fleet Micro 3A Digital Quad Charger for V-Mount Batteries is capable of simultaneously charging two batteries at 3A each. This means that two 98Wh batteries can be charged in approximately 2 hours. The on-board LCD display screen allows you to easily monitor your battery's smart battery data without needing to connect to a computer. The micro-USB connector allows for firmware updates and for connection to a PC.
The built-in Battery Management Test mode allows the charger to determine battery health and recharge performance. Activating the SafeFly mode forces the charger to discharge or charge connected batteries to a 30% charge level to meet air travel and shipping requirements. While plugged into an AC power source the Fleet Micro 3A Dual Charger can either charge batteries or be used as a camera power supply via the built-in 4-pin XLR. In the absence of AC power, you can use the charger to feed the 4-pin XLR from connected batteries providing unregulated power. The housing is made of aluminum, providing for a robust build.

Core SWX HyperCore HC9 Mini V-Mount Battery
Whether you require low clearance to fit your camera on a gimbal or just don't want the back of your rig to be dominated by a battery, the Core SWX HyperCore HC9 Mini V-Mount Battery can handle 12-amp draws, yet is encased in a small enclosure that matches the form-factor of many popular cinema cameras on the market. This V-mount model communicates using the standard SMBUS protocol (found on most cameras that have a native V-mount), sending battery metrics that can be monitored from the camera itself.
In addition to the V-mount power output, the HC9 features D-Tap and USB outputs. The D-Tap output can be used to power a light source, a monitor, recorder, or other part of your rig while you can connect your smartphone or other USB accessory for convenient charging. A 25-watt load on this battery will last approximately 3.5 hours. The LCD battery status display screen on the rear of the battery is backlit, and updates every few seconds to accurately reflect up-to-the-moment statistics, including runtime.
