Provide power to your portable professional video and cinema equipment with this V-mount Core SWX HyperCore NEO 9 Mini 4-Battery Kit with Fleet Q 4-Position Charger put together by B&H. Each HyperCore NEO 9 Mini lithium-ion V-mount battery features a 98Wh capacity and backlit status LCD, and it is capable of supporting a powerful 12A continuous draw and up to a maximum 16A draw. Their slim form factor keeps the batteries portable and allows them to integrate with a variety of space-constrained camera setups.
The included Fleet Q charger has four bays to replenish all four batteries simultaneously at 3A in around 2.5 hours. Put your batteries on to charge before a shoot, and you'll be ready to roll during production. See below for more details on the products included in this kit.
Core SWX Hypercore NEO 9 Mini 98Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (V-Mount)
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini, in a V-mount, from Core SWX is a compact 14.8V, 98Wh lithium-ion battery that supports a constant 12A draw and peak draw of 16A. With this high output, the battery is designed for cine and broadcast applications, but, of course, it can be used for virtually all other applications as well. At only 4.7" in height and weighing just 1.4 lb, it's also highly suited for gimbal, drone, and other mobile applications. The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini has the ergonomic design, large backlit LCD, and protective over-molded rubberized housing that Hypercore batteries have come to be known for over their past releases, but this NEO 9 Mini version is a lot more advanced.
It's microprocessor-driven like previous Hypercores, ensuring safety and runtime delivery to camera viewfinders or LCDs, but, leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO 9 Mini features an RFID transmitter on the front that lets you monitor the stored battery data via Core SWX's VoltBridgeID iOS app or an RFID reader. Furthermore, the NEO 9 Mini has a more modular design consisting of less cabling, allowing for increased quality. With the different parts installed separately and securely inside the housing, the chance of failure is reduced in case of drops, and servicing the battery becomes a simpler, more efficient process as the different parts install plug-and-play.
In addition to the large LCD, the Hypercore NEO 9 Mini has an LED gauge on the side where the user can easily glance over at it. Other features include 2000 charge/discharge cycles, hibernation mode, and the ability to communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one-wire and two-wire protocols (see the Features section below). Such an advanced battery wouldn't be complete without peripheral support. The NEO 9 Mini provides a SmartTap D-Tap port and a USB port for powering/charging devices. The SmartTap port lets you power any 12 VDC accessory and transmit battery data if the accessory is able to communicate that information.
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini is also widely compatible with many different chargers. This V-mount version is compatible with RED, IDX, and Sony V-mount chargers, among others.
