Never used 'em but I trust NiMH chemistry more than I do Li-Ion.

I may have to pick one or two of these up for testing with my V3... Thanks for the link. Report back if you get, and test one before I have a chance to.

Jeff, at the end of the first post on this thread I list a bunch of batteries.  I can build a V3 cable for any of these that are 6-12 volts

Found out from Ted that those have a fixed cable that is hard to modify so that put the kibosh on that. He recommended I check out Naztech:

Looks perfect!

I just ordered one. Hoping it has the same power out that that the Lenmars have. Otherwise I'll have to put Ted to work again.

Way longer run times then the old DVD batteries!!  You could power your V3 and 661 with this battery also.

Cool. I use an EasyAcc Power Bank for the 661 that has been awesome. It's 12,000 mAh and usually hasn't even lost a bar when I tape a show. I was hoping I could use another one of those to power the v3 until Ted informed me that it wasn't enough voltage.

Got my new cable from Ted and I am in business. It feels so good to finally have this situation solved.

Looks like there is a new model and it is higher power (15,000 mAh) and also selling for less. $29.99 sounds really good.

You could power a 661 with it, but it only does 5 volts, so that wouldn't work for the V3.

I'm not sure if the same info applies to the V2. 

I have this battery pack:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BB5VQCE/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


My V2 is a 12v version low serial number unit.  Assuming I can find the box and adapters, can a cable be made to power the V2?  I've only used the battery pack with my iPad.   Never used it with anything else requiring more juice. 

I plan on sending in my V2 to Grace for a once over to make sure everything is still working fine.  Should I just leave it at 12v or have it switched to 6v?   If switched to 6v I'm assuming I can't use the battery pack.   But what do I know.  Finally, what would be the run time if using the battery back?

Thanks.

I just got off the phone with Grace.  They want to look at the IntoCircuit battery and said they could probably make me a cable.  Pretty cool.

I didnt ask about running a  6v V2 with the battery, but I will when they call me after they take a look at it.

If they can switch it to 6v, I'd go that route, 6v is a lot easier to deal with than 12v. From choosing batteries to the weight.

Grace liked the battery pack.  They made me a power cable and did a once over of the pre.  Now, how do I figure out how long this battery will last me?  They said a very long time.  V2 is still 12 volt.

I have a 6 volt V3 that I previously powered with those heavy lead acid batteries... which have finally died. I saw the Tekkeon batteries on Grace Design's site which are discontinues... but just saw these batteries from Powerstream that look to be the exact same battery.

http://www.powerstream.com/PST-MP3500.htm

Has anyone used these? What do you recommend for a 6 volt V3. I don't want to toast it by using something that's higher voltage...

Thanks!!!
