If you have a USB-connected, multi-camera spherical VR rig with up to 8 cameras, this Core SWX VR Hub Power Kit from B&H can provide power to all of them using the included Hypercore HC8 V-mount battery. Both the included VR Hub and the V-mount battery plate can clamp onto tripod legs or other grip equipment in order to remain outside the camera's field-of-view. The VR Hub uses 8 USB power outputs to send power to the individual cameras. A D-tap charger is also included in this kit to replenish the battery before a shoot. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.

  • Core SWX VR Hub with D-Tap

    The Core SWX VR Hub with D-Tap is a clamp-on power distribution adapter for 360 camera arrays. It offers 8 USB ports for powering up to 8 cameras, and it features a D-Tap connector on a 4 ft cable for connecting to a D-Tap source for power. It's designed to secure to monopods, tripod legs, and other supports up to 1.75" in diameter.

    The USB ports deliver up to 5V of power each, which is enough to both power and charge the connected cameras. The Hub also has a D-Tap port next to the USB ports for powering additional accessories.

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

    The Core SWX HyperCore SLIM HC8 is a remodeled and upgraded follow-up to the original HyperCore SLIM. 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 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 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 suitable for pretty much every camera, from the smallest one to the larger cinema cameras, like the ARRI Alexa.

    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 1000 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 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 V-Mount will charge on Sony, IDX, and Switronix V-mount chargers, making it a very charger-compatible battery and allowing you to keep any compatible charger you may already own.
