An interview from the 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Ross Kanarek of CoreSWX. Core SWX is the market leader in batteries and charging solutions for the broadcast, digital cinema and the professional video industries, along with emerging markets such as drones and virtual reality.
The Powerbase Edge pack has proven to be the go to feature-rich “small-form” Cine and DSLR pack for the industry. Now we're advancing it even more with the Powerbase Edge Link and Powerbase Edge Lite models.
The Powerbase Edge Link (PBE-LINK) gets an upgraded capacity to 70wh along with a few new unique features. The name "Link" comes from the added linking feature so when using the battery as a V-mount pack, you can have multiple packs "linked" to provide 140wh or 210wh on-board for additional runtime while still meeting air travel safety standards when the packs are separated.
As with the other models, the Link is equipped with two p-taps and standard 5v USB, but now also has a USB-C PD DC 5v-20v output to power devices ranging from mobile phones and tablets, to DSLRs and even a full size laptop. You can even charge the battery with this port by using a USB-C PD charger. Additionally, you can charge the pack using a v-mount charger or p-tap charger. The Edge Link also got an updated intuitive runtime LCD like the one on the NEO and Helix packs as well as an updated quick release plate.
The Powerbase Edge Lite (PBE-LITE) is the ideal pack for those already invested in the Powerbase system or those that don’t utilize the v-mount connection and just want a “base” pack.
Similar to the original Edge, the Edge Lite has nearly all the features including two p-taps, two USB ports, 4-stage LED gauge and 49wh capacity of the original Powerbase Edge minus a runtime LCD and the aforementioned V-mount connection.
