Hrm.. been a while. I wanna say you'll get 10 hours no prob. I also recall running it with a blinking battery light for many, many hours, using NiMH. Like 5+

So it could theoretically go for a full festival day?  I'm thinking MK5 (o) > PSP2 > M10 for hardly strictly.

I believe so, yes. I've definitely run mine at mountain jam for the entire day on AA's. If you have a spare sled, it's also super easy to swap between sets and I would never advise going to a show without 6 spare AAs in-case an individual battery fails.

I just so happen to have my PFA rig handy, so I'll throw my Imedion AA's on the charger and run a test today. I'll let you know tonight or in the AM how long I get.

Ok, I started my mk41 > kyc > pfa > psp2 > m10 rig at 3:20 PM this afternoon and it's still going strong at 3AM. No low battery light yet. I imagine it will die sometime overnight, but I think you can safely assume 12+ hours. This is using fully charged Imedion AAs. I used the slow charge function on my maha charger, fwiw, and the AA batts are at least 5 years old now.

9:30 AM... rig was still going strong, but the low batt light was flashing. That's 18 hours of runtime... it damn near outlasted the m10 which was down to one bar. I ended the test before seeing when it would actually die.

That's awesome that's almost exactly the same rig that I would use too. Can you tell me where you got an extra sled for the PSP 2?

^Out of curiosity, is that the same sled that a PSP-3 uses?  Looks similar.
.....got a blank space where my mind should be.....
