Core SWX Powerbase EDGE V-Mount Battery

Keep your power-hungry cameras and production gear operating for long shoots with this high-capacity Powerbase EDGE V-Mount Battery from Core SWX. This follow-up to the popular Powerbase 70 lithium-ion battery features a 14.8V, 47Wh capacity and 8A continuous draw to power your gear for up to 8.25 hours (e.g. a small DSLR/mirrorless camera) on a full charge. In addition to the V-mount, which allows it to be used with all cameras and gear supporting a V-mount battery, the Powerbase EDGE has a 7.4V regulated DC barrel output, two 14 VDC D-Tap outputs, and two 5 VDC USB ports. One of the D-Tap outputs is classified as "SmartTap", which allows you to pass the battery data to your camera.

Using a compatible, separately available Powerbase EDGE power cable or dummy battery, you can connect the battery to most mirrorless and DSLR cameras via the regulated 7.4 VDC output. The SmartTap output, which is a Core SWX innovation, is a standard D-Tap connection with additional contacts inside that communicate SMBUS/smart battery data to compatible cameras. You can use the SmartTap and D-Tap ports to simultaneously provide 12 VDC power to a camera using optional D-Tap cables, as well as to power an accessory.

The USB ports can be used simultaneously with any of the other power options to power small 5 VDC accessories such as mobile devices. The battery can be charged in standard Core SWX V-mount chargers, and either D-Tap port also functions as a charging port and supports Core SWX D-Tap chargers. The battery also features a "storage mode" that allows you to deplete the battery quickly for safe travel.

The Powerbase EDGE has an LCD on the side that provides runtime in minutes, and it's easy to read in dark environments using its button-activated backlight. Like the Powerbase 70, the Powerbase EDGE comes with a small quick release adapter that provides a convenient way of attaching the battery to cheese plates and other camera supports. It secures onto the middle of the battery and provides a 1/4"-20 mounting screw. This allows you to mount the battery directly onto the bottom of your camera, or it can mount onto a battery slide or cage.

Sort out the confusion, it's a nice product

This battery pack is not, out of the box ready to power both the 6K & 4K BMPCC. More like, either 4k or 6k. As noted in other reviews, the DC connection from this pack is via a dummy battery not the DC power input plug. The 4K and 6K cameras have different battery types. Since the SWX Powerbase does not ship with two dummy batteries, it cannot be used with both cameras. Ours shipped with the NP-F570 dummy for our 6K. I will purchase an LP-E6 dummy battery (with D-tap) to use with our 4K. It would have been simpler to connect to the external DC port but I'm happy about the dummy battery. Why? Because (imho) the DC port is one of the weakest points of the BM pocket design.... very thin pins that are easily damaged. The battery has an LED screen to monitor power and charging. The case can be t-pod mounted with the camera on top. The battery case also has a V-mount port (as well as d-tap and USB). If you decide you don't like the dummy battery scheme, get a cage with a v-mount. Fair warning: the battery door of the BMPCC lacks a port to accommodate the power cable from the dummy battery. Hopefully this is easily remedied with a Dremel tool:-' I hope these conclusions are accurate and helpful.

Great power source for BMPCC4k

This is actually my 2nd powerbase for my BMPCC4K. It works great and gives atleast 3,5h of power. I also like how it connects under the camera and you don't have to cover your screen like with some other battery.

Best investment ever

I run this on my GH5s and omg is it nice. 8.5 hour run time, charges fully in like 2-2.5 hours from completely dead. Unbelievably light weight for what it is. This thing is a game changer for handheld all day event coverage

Great battery!

It's nice you have the option to mount underneath your camera, and it keeps ya juice for a good long while! Would buy again.

Bad battery

Garbage. Do not order. Everything stops charging if left alone for a month. Find another solution.

This is my 2nd one and nothing wrong with the first, Nuff Said.

Dummy Battery doesn't work

By Greg

This is a net positive for my workflow. The ability to power monitors and other external devices for long periods of time significantly reduces recording stress. Mounting this battery on the bottom of the camera also lowers the rig's center of mass and makes operation while on an easy rig more stable. The dummy battery stopped working after the first week. Still, worth it.
