This Core SWX Powerbase EDGE Pro 2-Battery Kit put together by B&H includes two Powerbase EDGE V-mount batteries, a coiled D-Tap to 2-pin power cable for the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K, and the X2S two-bay vertical V-mount charger.
Connect the coiled 18 to 48" cable into the 8.4 VDC barrel output on the battery to power your camera. To charge the batteries, use the included two-bay charger that features simultaneous charging at 2A and a 90W XLR output to power additional accessories while charging.
Core SWX 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 X2S 2-Bay Vertical V-Mount Battery Charger
Charge your V-Mount batteries while on-the-go with the Core SWX X2S 2-Bay Vertical V-Mount Battery Charger. Taking advantage of the same technology built into the larger fleet chargers, this slim charger can charge a single battery at a 3-amp rate or batteries in both bays simultaneously at 2 amps. Since it sits vertically with two batteries mounted, the X2S takes up less space than traditional chargers. With its 4-pin XLR output, the X2S also does double duty as a 90W power supply for cameras, lights, or other equipment that can draw from a 4-pin XLR.
