- 98wh, 14v Lithium Ion battery
- 16A Peak / 12A continuous load
- RFID Voltbridge data
- Totally new internal build, more robust and easier to service
- SMBUS & RED Data communication to camera
- ‘Helix’ style LCD
- Gold and V-Mount versions available
As with other Core SWX packs, the NEO pack is microprocessor-driven, making them safer as well as supporting the transmission of runtime and percentage data to your camera’s viewfinder or LCD. That same data can also be viewed on the new multipurpose, intuitive backlit LCD on the front of the battery packs. The LCD is multipurpose as it provides remaining runtime based on a 30W dummy load while not in-use, a remaining down to the minute runtime while connected to the device you’re powering, and it even provides remaining charge time while connected to a charger.
Further leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO packs have an RFID transmitter on the front of the packs, so you can easily grab all your battery data stored from the pack on your phone via our VoltBridgeID app available in the app store.
Not only was the NEO line constructed similar to Helix with the new LCD and RFID, it was also constructed in a modular design like Helix, which reduces cabling and maximizes product integrity. The pack is put together like building blocks within a very small battery housing, reducing the chance of a failure due to a drop or multiple drops. The modular design also makes it very easy to service as the components are plug and play.
Knowing 10A load delivery doesn’t cut it anymore; the NEO packs have an upgraded cell architecture which can sustain up to 16A peak loads, 12A continuous. In addition, there is SmartTap on the pack allowing you to power any 12v DC device from the p-tap port while also being able to transmit battery data if the device you are using is able to communicate that information. There is also a 5v USB for charging mobile devices, but also offers additional functionality as a fully function firmware upgrade port, so you will never be left behind as we continue to develop.
Lastly, as with all Core SWX battery packs, they are the most charger compatible on the market. The V-mount offerings will charge on RED, IDX, Sony, etc., and the Gold mount offerings will charge on Anton/Bauer chargers
Compact and Powerful
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini is a 14.8V, 98Wh lithium-ion battery supporting a 12A continuous draw and 16A peak draw. It's only 4.7" in height and weighs just 1.4 lb.
The battery features an eight-cell design utilizing Panasonic cells.
A multipurpose backlit LCD provides nominal runtime based on a 25W load, remaining runtime once connected to a device, and remaining charge time when on a charger.
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini can communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one-wire and two-wire protocols.
The packs go to sleep/hibernate when there is no battery usage or movement after a 48-hour period. Once the battery is picked back up, it awakens.
Integrated "smart" D-Tap connector allows users to power any 12 VDC device while also receiving all battery data from the port.
5V USB port allows powering any USB accessory on the set as well as charge mobile devices.
Over-molded, non-slip rubberized housing helps provide cell protection against accidental impacts.
The NEO 9 Mini is firmware-upgradeable via its USB port.
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini UN38.3 is certified for safer travel (depending on the airline carrier).
The Hypercore NEO 9 Mini incorporates Storage Mode to protect self-discharge and help comply with travel regulations.
