What's in the Box
- Core SWX Hypercore NEO 150 Mini 147Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (V-Mount)
- Limited 2-Year Warranty
The Hypercore NEO 150 Mini from Core SWX is a compact 14.8V, 147Wh lithium-ion battery that features a V-mount, and it supports a constant 12A draw with a peak draw of 16A. With this high output, the battery is designed for cine and broadcast applications, as well as mobile and field applications. The battery is ultra-compact, so it's also highly suited for gimbal, drone, and other mobile applications. The Hypercore NEO 150 Mini has the ergonomic design, large backlit LCD, and protective overmolded rubberized housing that Hypercore batteries are known for over their past releases.
It's microprocessor-driven like previous Hypercores, ensuring safety and runtime delivery to camera viewfinders or LCDs, but, leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO 150 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. The NEO 150 Mini has a more modular design consisting of less cabling, allowing for increased quality. With the cells and 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 150 Mini has an LED gauge on the side to quickly spot battery level status. Other features include 2000 charge/discharge cycles, hibernation mode, and the ability to communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one- and two-wire protocols (see the Features section below). The NEO 150 Mini also provides a SmartTap D-Tap port and a 5V USB port for powering/charging devices, and you can use the USB port to upgrade the battery's firmware. The SmartTap port lets you power any 12 VDC accessory and transmit battery data if the accessory is able to communicate that information.
Compact and Powerful
The Hypercore NEO 150 Mini is a 14.8V, 147Wh lithium-ion battery supporting a 12A continuous draw and 16A peak draw.
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 150 Mini can communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one- 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.
The 5V USB port allows powering any USB accessory on the set as well as charge mobile devices.
The NEO 150 Mini is firmware-upgradeable via its USB port.
Overmolded, nonslip rubberized housing helps provide cell protection against accidental impacts.
The Hypercore NEO 150 Mini incorporates Storage Mode to protect self-discharge and help comply with travel regulations.
