Core SWX Powerbase Edge overview

  • 1Description

This Core SWX Powerbase EDGE Bundle includes the Powerbase EDGE V-mount battery, an LP-E6 dummy battery power cable for the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera, and a D-Tap wall charger. Connect the DC coupler cable into the 8.4 VDC barrel output on the battery to power your camera. To charge the battery, use the included wall charger.

  • Powerbase EDGE V-Mount Battery

    The Core SWX Powerbase EDGE in a V-mount is a 14.8V, 49Wh, lithium-ion battery featuring an 8A continuous draw. This follow-up to the popular Powerbase 70 battery offers multiple modes of use. In addition to the V-mount, which allows it to be used with all cameras supporting a V-mount battery, the Powerbase EDGE has an 8.4V regulated DC output, a D-Tap output, a SmartTap output, and two USB ports.

    Using the appropriate Powerbase EDGE power cable (sold separately), you can connect the battery to most mirrorless and DSLR cameras via the 8.4 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. Other than this, it works just like a regular D-Tap port and supports standard D-Tap cables. Accordingly, you can use either the SmartTap or D-Tap port to power a camera using an optional D-Tap cable. The remaining one can be used to power an accessory, and likewise the USB ports can be used simultaneously with any of the other power options to power 5V accessories or charge mobile devices. The D-Tap port also functions as a charging port and supports D-Tap chargers such as the Core SWX PB70C15.

    The Powerbase EDGE has an LCD on the side that provides runtime in minutes. Located on the side, it's easy to check on and read during production. Moreover, a button-activated backlight allows you to see it clearly in dark environments.

    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. If, for example, you're looking to power your camera using the battery's D-Tap port, the quick release adapter provides a convenient way of attaching the battery to your rig in order to do that.

Core SWX Powerbase Edge reviews

Powerbase EDGE Battery for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not created for the BMPCC4K - just a dummy battery This product actually was not created for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, even though it is being re-branded and marketed that way. In reality, its just a Canon LP-E6 dummy battery that plugs into a bigger battery that has a 1/4-20 mounting screw on top.  Thats it. The proper battery solution for the BMPCC4K is of course using the external power supply port (with locking LEMO-like connector), whereas this manufacturer didnt bother procuring that cable -- and if anything comes loose using this worse dummy battery work-around, your footage is lost/corrupted after immediate shutdown.  (That wouldnt happen if you had a real battery inserted, combined with external power feeding into the proper port.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly. First - this battery does NOT lose power when not in use as previous reviewer stated. You need to long-press the “power” button (about 20 seconds) then it goes into storage mode. This is a nice solution for the pocket 4k. I like the form factor better than anticipated. I leave it on the cam all the time. Definitely recommend. Accurate time remaining display, lasts about 3hrs of recording, swaps out in 15 seconds. Feels like a nice extension to the cam. Pricier than other solutions, but if you have the budget, I haven’t found a better solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay. So I have 4 Anton Bauer Cine batteries and I decided to give these a try for my new Pocket 4K. They're just okay. They lose their charge FAST when not in use. After just a day they'll be down 5-10%, where my AB's are still at 100% several days after being charged. In less than a week of no use, from fully charged, these are down to 50%. Can't recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a battery, a good one If you want almost 4hrs of runtime with this camera from a single battery, on a single charge, you should get it.  You can fumble around with a bunch of canon batteries, but its challenging to keep tabs on which lasts longest(only 40minutes at best), and even more difficult to keep recharging all the canon packs after a shoot.   Pros need quality solutions which makes production easier and more efficient, and this does that, so Id recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really delivers This product was bought for me as a gift. After finally receiving the camera. My only complaint was that the internal battery only lasted about 40 minutes. After getting this no more complaints! Lasted more than 3 hours.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended with BMPCC4K I have not yet used the dummy battery, but Ive used the battery with the BMPCC4K with the Wooden Camera cable. Works well.
