Core SWX Announces Hypercore Slim HC8 Battery

Core SWX is shipping the latest edition to its Hypercore SLIM series batteries, the Hypercore SLIM HC8 for applications requiring a low profile power pack.

Core SWX said the HC8 is the first line of slim battery packs capable of handling high-draw loads, making them ideal for UAV, handheld gimbal and all other applications demanding a low-profile battery pack.

The HC8 is capable of powering REDARRI ALEXA Mini and similar digital cameras, handling draws of up to 148-watt hours (10 amps) without deterioration in service life or operability.

An LED backlit runtime LCD on the front of the HC8 battery pack lets users know how much battery time is left when in use and will also show remaining charge time while connected to a charger, allowing users the opportunity to plan out their shoots down to the minute.

The battery's cells are incased in an over-molded, rubberized housing, providing additional protection against accidental impacts that may occur when operating alongside UAVs.

Like the Hypercore Prime, this 85 watt hour battery pack is safe and legal for air travel. The HC8 is available in V-mount, 3-Stud mount and V-mount RED to communicate exact remaining battery capacity to the RED camera's LCD/VF.

"We have previewed the HC8 at several trade shows and the demand for it has been at an all-time high," said Jose Flores, sales manager at Core SWX. "The HC8 is the most compact, trim design in the industry and is perfect for UAV or other scenarios where a small form factor is needed to power cameras.”
