Core SWX NEO Slim Overview

The Hypercore NEO Slim 98Wh Lithium-Ion Battery from Core SWX is a compact 14.8V, 98Wh lithium-ion V-mount 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 1.5" thin and weighing just 1.4 lb, it's also highly suited for gimbal, drone, and other mobile applications. The Hypercore NEO Slim 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.

Like previous Hypercores, the battery is microprocessor-driven, ensuring safety and runtime delivery to camera viewfinders or LCDs; but, leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO Slim 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 battery has a 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 Slim 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. Such an advanced battery wouldn't be complete without peripheral support. The Hypercore NEO Slim 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 Slim is also widely compatible with many different chargers. This V-mount version is compatible with RED, IDX, and Sony V-mount chargers, among others.

Core SWX NEO Slim Reviews

LCD screen is great

By Lorenzo
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-29

So far so good with this battery. I have it running a FX3 and xlr mic with phantom power and getting a full day on it. It all depends on what you have running off the battery for the amount of time you will get from it but with the LCD screen there is less guess work than trying to figure out how many indicator lights lights on the side equal how much time is left. This is my second Core battery. My first one didn't have an LCD screen. I needed a second battery for an outdoor shoot and picked this one up.

Good specs on paper but undepe

I have purchased over 30 Core Swx batteries over the last couple of years because of their impressive specs on paper, but I have decided to start inching my way back to Anton Bauer. I keep having issues with Core batteries "hibernating" when I need them to wake, and every time I send one for service they tell me "These batteries have met their life expectancy and can no longer hold a significant charge. Would you like to use these for a trade-in?". Mind you, i think none of these batteries are over two years old. Plus the materials they use make them scuff very easily, unlike the plastics other brands use. When they work, they are great, but you can't always count on them and especially can't count on their service department.

Core Batteries are reliable, and they keep getting better.

High quality: I use it for Ninja Athom recorder with Sony AS 7iii . It is enough for non stop 6 hours filming (1 buttery) happy with this purchase. Highly recommend.

Battery will not charge with Core's own chargers

By Ryan

Really dig how slim the battery is and also the screen with time remaining readout is great...except I'm not too thrilled that this battery won't charge on any of my Core SWX chargers. Contacted support over a month ago and they've since gone radio silent on helping resolve the issue. Unfortunate because I do want to like these batteries.

Nice lightweight, versatile batteries

I primarily power my Flanders monitor with these babies. The digital readout is nice and the placement of the d-tap and USB ports allow you to use both simultaneously.

Superhero, NEO!

The power to form factor is incredible! Love this small sized (but hefty) power bank. With a V-Mount belt clip, it is well hidden behind me and doesn't stick out too far, which other batteries tend to catch things because they do stick out so far. Very pleased!

How does this compare against the Hypercore Neo 9 Mini other than its slimmer form factor and USB port? In other words, what would make someone pick the Mini over the Slim?
Asked by: Ed
The Hypercore Neo 9 Mini and Hypercore Neo Slim in the 98w versions are of the same capacities and specs for output and draw. The Neo 9 Mini tends to fit better on RED cinema cameras and other cinema bodies without blocking any of the fans or sticking out above the camera body.
