£139. They're mods so they're having to purchase the existing 4bays I think.

http://www.pinknoise-systems.co.uk/ have made some 4 pin regulated Hirose power adapter prototypes that they say should be up for sale in a few weeks. 


Found on the SD MP3/6 FB forum.

That is exactly what I want!!!


This is what you want.   ;) 

Hirose to L-mount adapter for use with the optional MX-LMount battery sled.

See http://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Prods/Product/LR-06.


I purchased mine for $99 from Manios Digital & Film located in California, USA

http://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Prods/Product/LR-06

https://maniosdigital.com/

Speak with Chris Lobos - Chris quoted me a price of $99 for the Hawk-Woods LR-06 - This product is on the approved Sound Devices powering list.  I ordered mine last week from Chris.  Should be here in two weeks.  I'm sure that they ordered more than one of these from Hawk-Woods.

Please post some photos when you get it. I suspect that this with the L mount sled and a small Lmount battery wouldn't stick out much further or take up more room than the 8x AA sled. Having a small L mount battery (like the Sound Devices XL-B2) would allow you to hot swap batteries connected by Hirose without interruption.



I'm assuming this is a photo of the XL-B2 in the sled here

This is a much more expensive option; your looking at $200 for the sled, dummy, and hirose > external adapter cable. I agree this is a better option because then you can use a small L series battery as backup (https://www.amazon.com/Sony-NP-F570-InfoLithium-Battery-DCRVX2100/dp/B0002Y5WVQ), hot swap externals, and of course the dummy is on the approved list. Did the $99 for the dummy battery include shipping?

I already have the L-mount sled.  I don't know if the LR-06 $99 quote included shipping.

The similar option mentioned by b_curl runs $177 US dollars if the price is £139.

The Hawk-Woods adapter regulates the incoming voltage to 8V! I like the option better than the USB-C external.

what 8v battery would you use with the hirose?

What does the Hirose connect to in this scenario - a sled with multiple LMount batteries? Could you use a custom cable to 12v battery?

See this:  http://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Prods/Product/LR-06

The Hirose from the LR-06 dummy cell will connect to a Naztech PB15000 battery, Naztech PB15000 battery cable with a female Hirose connector.

Cable like this. I'd ask tgakidis to make one instead of buying off Amazon though.

Actually, looking at the Hawkwinds product, it may have a male hirose plug on it. You might need a female cable made since I think most of the cables Ted makes are male plugs as well.

I did a battery test with the Monoprice Executive Series Portable Charger, 15,000 mAh USB-C Power Bank, 5.4A Output

https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=16240

Running the MP6 at 24/192, recording only on Channels 1 & 2 (did NOT record the LR MIX tracks), phantom power on both channels, Bluetooth OFF, LCD at 1, LED at 2, plugged into the Monoprice, I got just over 12 hours runtime.
