Core SWX Fleet FF Charger – Juice Up 4 MōVI Pro Battery Packs in 45 Minutes

Core SWX Fleet FF Charger – Juice Up 4 MōVI Pro Battery Packs in 45 Minutes

If you’re on set, you have the choice of A) bringing a whole bunch of batteries or B) bring less bulk and –if possible– charge your batteries as you go. Weight vs. time, so to say. Time is a precious good on a packed shooting day and you can’t afford waiting for those batteries to charge up. That’s where the new Core SWX Fleet FF charger comes in. Four fully charged batteries for your MōVI Pro gimbal in just 45 minutes!

This compact 4-bay charger takes the pain out of charging up batteries for the MōVI Pro. Usually you’d use the provided single-bay chargers from Freefly to juice up the 25.2V Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries. Since the gimbal is powered by two batteries simultaneously, most of the MōVI Pro bundles come with two batteries and two single-bay chargers.

This newly developed charger takes four of the MōVI Pro batteries and charge all of them in about 45 minutes, which is pretty impressive since the original charger by Freefly takes around one hour to charge one single battery. The Core SWX Fleet device charges the batteries independently, so it makes sure to provide each and every battery with the correct amount of charge current. This is actually important since LiPo batteries tend to be pretty delicate devices demanding for careful treatment.

Having just one compact device for charging 4 batteries simultaneously seems to be much preferable than setting up a heap of cable clutter and multiple chargers. The Core SWX Fleet FF (as in Freefly) charger provides up to 2.5A charge current while accepting 90-240V AC 50/60Hz as an input voltage. The unit is 10.9″ x 4.9″ x 3.26″ (27,7 x 12,5 x 8,3 cm) in size and it weights 2.1 lbs (0,95 kg).

Pricing and Availability

The Core SWX Fleet FF charger is obviously more expensive than the original Freefly charger. It’s even (way) more expensive than 4 of the Freefly chargers. But, and that might be important here: As we’ve discussed earlier, time is a precious good on the set, so being able to quickly recharge four batteries could potentially top the premium price. Especially if you’ve already paid serious money for the gimbal itself.

Of course all of this only applies if you’re using the MōVI Pro gimbal system on a regular basis. But if you do, you don’t want to wait for some extra batteries to charge up, do you?

Hello, I own a Rainsoft EC4 & Qrs system (as well as an Ultrefiner II) and my drinking filter alarm has started. Is this alarm referring to a filter on my Ultrefiner or is it for the EC4 system? If it’s the Ultrefiner, I see instructions on how to change those, but don’t see anything regarding the EC4. Thanks for any help you can provide!!

I own the same exact setup with an https://freebears.com/rainsoft EC4 and Ultrefiner II and I am experiencing the same error message and alert with my EC4 system. Did you ever figure out what the alarm was referring to and what did you do to resolve the issue? It seems to me that the Ultrefiner filters just need changed but I can’t find all material that states what I need to do to resolve this. Thanks!

Is it true that highlighting your achievements and unique qualities is one of the most important things when filling out a resume? Specialists from https://craftresumes.com/cover-letter-writing-service/ state that resume should be a list of my achievements, not a description of my career path. My task is to show the employer what value I represent for the company.
