Provide power to your portable professional video and cinema equipment with this Core SWX HyperCore SLIM 8 2-Battery Kit with X2S Vertical Charger from B&H. HyperCore SLIM 8 batteries are high-capacity, 82 watt-hour lithium-ion V-mount batteries, capable of supporting up to 10-amp continuous draws. They also feature a battery runtime LCD on the rear. Using RED's power protocol, these V-mount batteries can communicate with RED cameras, providing real-time power information that can be viewed in the camera's viewfinder or monitor. The included X2S vertical charger has two bays to replenish both batteries at 2 amps simultaneously, in around three hours. If you charge a single battery, a 3-amp charge will be provided, fully charging the battery in around two 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 X2S 2-Bay Vertical V-Mount Battery Charger

    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.

  • 2 x Core SWX HyperCore SLIM HC8 for 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.
