Core SWX Prime overview

  • 1Description

Provide power to your portable professional video and cinema equipment with this Core SWX HyperCore Prime 2-Battery Kit with X2A Vertical Charger from B&H. The two HyperCore Prime batteries are 2-part, high-capacity, 190 watt-hour lithium-ion Gold mount batteries, capable of supporting up to 10-amp continuous draws. By implementing a 2-part design, these batteries can comply with certain travel restrictions by splitting into two 95 watt-hour packs. The included X2A vertical charger has two bays to replenish both batteries at 2 amps simultaneously, in around 6.5 hours. If you charge a single battery, a 3-amp charge will be provided, fully charging the battery in around 5 hours. Put your batteries on to charge before a shoot, and you'll be ready to roll during production. For more details on the products included in this kit, check out the features below.

  • Core SWX X2A 2-Bay Vertical Gold Mount Battery Charger

    Charge your Gold Mount batteries while on-the-go with the Core SWX X2A 2-Bay Vertical Gold 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 X2A takes up less space than traditional chargers. With its 4-pin XLR output, the X2A also does double duty as a 90W power supply for cameras, lights, or other equipment that can draw from a 4-pin XLR.

Core SWX Prime reviews

HyperCore Prime 2-Battery Kit with X2A Vertical Charger (Gold Mount) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Experience As an owner/operator freelance shooter 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 the slow side straight out of the box. Only the rapid charge side of the charger worked. The light indicating that a battery was installed would never turn on. This could mean the either the battery was faulty or the charger was. The last thing I wanted was to troubleshoot battery problems with a looming shoot at an international destination. 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. Even after two such sessions of (7-8 hours) of continuous charging this battery would just not charge. So not only did I have a faulty charger. Now there was a faulty battery as well. Since the batteries were purchased in the US, taken delivery in Los Angeles, according to Core's policies I could not return them to the local CoreSWX dealer to get a replacement. The next course of action was to send them back to my sister in Cupertino (where the boxes & packaging for the boxes was) to initiate the return process. Thankfully, some foresight had made me ask my sister to hang onto them while I made this international trip. That was not going to be. Since we were at a destination that was not in the metros, none of the local shipping services would accept the batteries due to cautionary international cargo shipping restrictions. Now I was stuck with a $1500 battery solution that I might loose if I could not send the faulty batteries back to B&H under their 30-day return period. Forget getting replacements flown in to continue with my shoot. Luckily, I was able to find some contacts of my mother's personal friends who were willing to carry the faulty kit back with them to the US. These contacts (a family of two young children and their parents) were not connected to the film industry so they had a harrowing time taking the batteries through screening stations. The screening checks caused 30-40 minutes delays for them at each juncture of their return trip (total of 3 times) when changing airlines. Imagine the trouble a family of non-Caucasian people who had no clue about Li-Ion Digital Camera batteries trying to explain why they were carrying 4 pieces of 95Whr through screening stations, which they had volunteered to carry for someone else. That caused me an epic level embarrassment among multiple people. All this while having no solution to continue shooting as per schedule. My reputation & job were at stake, I cannot imagine what the producer was going through. 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 seen some reviews on B&H & 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, given the very unique nature of my situation, 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. Considering: (A) For having to put through some non production related contacts of mine through a really harrowing time at airline checks, and for causing me a major embarrassment for asking them of this favor. (B) For failing right out the box, new, when used for the first time at a remote international location and putting me in a spot where my producers, their reputation & money was put at stake. (C) For putting my job, reputation & reliability at stake. Hard for me to recommend them to someone else.
