Simultaneous 14v/28v Power Output
We have seen a lot of developments over the last few years when it comes to batteries, but this has mostly involved offering them in higher capacities and making them smaller
The new Helix series isn’t smaller and it isn’t higher capacity than previous offerings, but it does add dual 14v/28v* simultaneous voltage output.
*The mean voltage rating of Helix’s outputs are 14v and 28v, with a maximum charge rating of 16.8v and 33.6v. Most high voltage range equipment accepts up to 34v.
The Helix series is based around Core SWX’s Hypercore series and it offers all of the same functionality but it is able to sustain very high outputs for those users who require a powerful on-board battery solution.
Near Lossless Power Transmission
Core SWX are using proprietary, patent-pending technology for the Helix. According to the company, the Helix is ultra-efficient, providing nearly lossless power transmission at a 99% efficiency rate

The Helix system is available in V-mount and Gold mount, and in size offerings of a Mini9 (98wh), a Prime (2-part 190wh), and an XL (293wh model). In addition to these models, a Mini 150wh model is now available to answer the need for a cinematic, small form option, providing longer runtimes to that of the Mini9.
The way Helix has been designed allows the battery to have the same functionality as a standard V-mount or
In addition, the battery mount plates are compatible with standard
