and no longer even run the AA tray at all.

When I'm powering from USB, I'd like to ditch the AA tray as well, but I'm worried about dirt and dust getting into the SD card slot.

Personally, I would not do that just in case something fails.

That's true. It does provide emergency back-up.

I leave the AA sled attached, but empty, to protect the SD card and allow the recorder to sit well in my bag.

I never turn my machine off (or even stop the recording) during the show, even at setbreak.

Is there a thread on what everyone's doing for AC power option? All I can seem to find around the net is the SD MX Charge solution. Surely there is another, less expensive option for power the MixPro-6 from the wall outlet.

I've been using this:

and this:

No problems so far.

I got a couple of there HyperGear batteries for a song and have been using them with great success. Around 7 hours on a single charge and the red/black version can be had for $23 on Amazon.

Anyone have any problem using the USB port on a Naztech 15000?  I need a backup for this weekend at Hardly Strictly.

I can confirm it works but it will give you the low power icon.
