Core SWX Slim 98 overview

  • 1Description

The Core SWX Hypercore Slim Gold Mount Battery is a professional battery designed for modern production workflows involving a wide range of equipment. The slim design means the battery takes up less horizontal space than previous-generation models to better fit gimbal stabilizers and other rigs where space is at a premium. Though the design is less space-consuming, the Hypercore Slim provides the same 98Wh capacity as its predecessors. For power-hungry cinema cameras and lights, the 12-amp maximum continuous draw will keep your equipment powered. This Gold mount model is compatible with Anton Bauer equipment, and will charge on Anton Bauer chargers.

In addition to the Gold mount power output, the Hypercore Slim 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 with a cool white illumination, and updates every few seconds to accurately reflect up-to-the-moment statistics, including runtime. The battery itself is housed in Core SWX's classic over molded casing with a rubberized finish that is resistant to impact and is easily grippable.

    Core SWX Slim 98 reviews

    Hypercore Slim Gold Mount Battery is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from loving the size slim size compared to the original one. would great.
    Date published: 2018-03-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, air travel friendly, low cost and newer tech Originally I was very skeptical about 3rd party Core SWX back early 2017. I used Anton Bauer batteries for over a decade. Sadly, their recent physical design after the Vitec group acquisition made me want to puke. Couldn't fit in existing premade foam with their odd and weird looking battery. They appear to be disposable Mickey Mouse toy or something for kids to play with. Leaving me with no choice, I took the risk of buying 3rd party brand to get the normal rectangular shape and now I'm not going back to AB batteries anymore! AB definitely learned their lessons likely from dismal sales of their new odd shape design and actually going back to the square battery design: Dionic XT90! Notice it's now something practical like the rest of the other batteries and with USB2 port. But is $140 over the Core SWX Slim worthwhile? Here are some points on the Hypercore Slim: 1) Air-travel friendly. I'm surprised that no x-ray security agent asked me to take off the battery for inspection from the past 8 countries! 2) Lower cost. ~$140 dollars cheaper than AB XT90 equivalent. 3) Very useful USB-2 power port to power my cell phone and other devices. Can't find that on the Dionic HC. 4) Works very well on 8 different countries (US, Europe, Asia) and climates. 5) Slim size. Fits in my short nicely. I can cram in 2 more Slim Gold Mount in my short pockets. Very useful and handy where you don't want to bring too much gear and remain low-profile. Not sure if I can fit the new AB XT90 battery in the same pocket. 6) Can use AB Tandem 150, Tandem 70, Twin, and other AB super expensive chargers on this Slim batteries without any compatibility problems. But I noticed the older T2, Quad 2702 will not work. AB would not let me upgrade to the latest firmware. It appears they want to get rid of their old chargers by not allowing customers to upgrade latest firmware so that I can charge SWX Core. This is lame. By doing this, you're letting the competitors have a larger market share. So I bought the Core X2A Gold Mount charger for $250. Too bad AB, at least you could of have made $50-100 per charger with the firmware software fee. Only time will tell if this can charge 2000 cycles. The photo shows that I'm still using the discontinued AB Dionic 90 that was purchased back in 2005! It's now 2018 (13 years later) and still holds its charge. The load is on a Varicam 35 using both MAIN & SUB slots. The Varicam can go up to 100W when at its peak and averages about 60-70W. I'm getting about 2 hours of continuous on time from these 90ish AH batteries. I also use the Core SWX GP-TA GoldMount hot swap adaptor for continuous powering throughout the long day. Will update this annually to see how these Hypercore Slim Gold Mount batteries perform after 2-4 years of normal production. So far I can tell you that they're working great. I'm not at all getting paid from Core SWX or their employee. Just want to give accurate reviews and real-world performances.
