In my initial battery testing, i got 45 hours of record time on a set of Imedion rechargeable 9 volts.
I shut it down after 45 hours!! It was still recording, but had to go to a show.

I heard about this a few weeks ago and when Nick said it used less power, I had no idea the record times would be 10x that of the older boxes. Just awesome.

Here is Ed's post from the kickdown thread. I would expect more info in the next couple of weeks.

This is the first show recorded by a new version of the N-Box.  Nick and Bill Reutelhuber have been collaborating to design and build new versions of the n-box (also formerly the Reutelhuber box from years ago) that provides stellar pure class A sound plus incredibly long battery life.  This unit is being beta tested as I write and this is the first recording done with the new design.  Although testing is not yet complete, the box appears to have batt life of about 30 hours on 9 volt rechargeables.  It uses a pure class A design with only discrete transistors in the signal path.  Everything is direct coupled except for one set of audiophile Multicaps between the mic power supply part and gain part of the new design preamp.  Nick and Bill have endeavored to improve upon what has been recognized by many as one of the best sounding field recording preamps to further improve sound quality and dramatically increase battery life.  From a listen of the first recording, it appears that we met our goals with an audiophile sounding smooth sound coupled with low power usage.  We thank Ed Tyre for taking the box out on a test cruise to see how it performs before we go into production.  Like the n-box it is intended to work with schoeps, akg ck6 capsules and geffels via Nick's active cables.  Stay tuned as this will likely be in full production very soon.

Neato. I didn't know Bill was still doing stuff.

I'm sure Nick will jump on this thread soon, but i am pretty sure he will be offering an upgrade to the older Nbox's, so they can
just get the newer version of the board inside, everything else is pretty much the same. I'll let him discuss this.

Also, for people who want phantom powered balanced out, there is a version I beta tested since 2008 professionally recording multitracks.  This circuit is also pure class A and runs on 48 volt phantom.  we are not quite ready as to this box because we need to reduce power consumption a bit because the beta versions i built were powered off of AC powered preamps and consoles.  So this is a "coming down the road soon" variant of the n-box/bill box with active drive xlr outs phantom powered.  So some other goodies coming on down the pike also.
