I don't really want to move to another type of battery since both my pres have cables for DVD batteries.

this is also a nice option because it has the usb which would only output 5v.

Agreed   :(

it's getting to the point that the Tekkeon 3450 is a better buy

I don't really want to move to another type of batter since both my pres have cables for DVD batteries.

the Tekkeon 3450 has alot of standard tips... but is expensive

^^ oh, hehe, didn't see it was also posted/discussed about.

The 3450 does have a lot of tips and there are extra ones you can buy if it doesn't fit your device. It's aimed at the laptop and pda market but I see it as a major failsafe for tapers.
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

FWIW, my PowerRunner battery has been 100% rock solid for the many years that I've used it and it still powers stuff forever.  The PowerRunner I have is the predecessor to the Tekkeon 3450, so anyone searching ebay and finding an old used PowerRunner battery could get a good deal, although I have no idea if these come up for sale very often.

i still have no idea how long i can run a v3 off one of these initial 5400ma 9v batteries.  has anyone run one all the way down?

i ran it 3 hours and 35 minutes last night with no AD on the V3 and it was down to 1 yellow light, but I have no idea how much more I can get out of it.  I've been running it on this battery for a few years, but have never tried anything longer than 3.5 hours on 1 battery.  for 2 set shows i usually just swap batteries at the set break

V3 uses a Linear Regulator in the initial phase of it's Power Stage.  And since it is rated at about 1A in operation when Phantom is in use I theoretically you should get about 5.4 hours out of a 5400 mAhr battery - Voltage is not a significant factor.

It's best not to run LiON batteries to a full discharge.

I didn't check the link but I believe that one is only 2600 mAh compared to the 5400/6000 that the other dvd batteries are.  They are on E_bay but the going rate for them is now about $60.

I found a seller selling OEMs of the 5400mAh version for $34 + shipping (or $43 incl US shipping):

Tech-For-Less is in Colorado Springs, and I go there all the time. It's on my way home from work.  I have an e-mail that I can send that will give you 10% off on your purchase too. If you want it, PM me your e-mail address.

My next battery will be the Energizer XP8000. 

http://www.amazon.com/Energizer-XP8000-Rechargeable-Power-Netbooks/dp/B0029U2WZU

Great price for such a versatile battery.

I bought one of those when Woot had them for cheap.
I use it to power a UA-5 when I need it. It's a good battery, but I wouldn't want to pay $70 for one.

Price is pretty steep but is still better than $140 for a Tekkeon.

Kids you all obviously don't remember the days when an external battery solution (beyond getting a D Size sled) cost over $100 and most gear required this to get decent run time (i.e. more than a few hours). 


Battery technology has come a long way - it sucks that these batteries can't be found that cheap anymore but paying less than $70 IMO is a pretty good deal for a new setup!

You can't just look at the cash you lay out.  You also have to factor in cycle and calendar life.  While the initial expenditure of LiFePO4 batteries seems high ($1.42 per Watt-hour is what I just paid) they are actually cheaper than lead-acid or regular lithium batteries due to greater cycle and calendar life.  Also, safety is worth paying for.

$7.    If I couldn't find cheap ones, I'd just adapt a sony camcorder battery or build something else.

Now watch the TS bidding frenzy drive the battery up to $100 :P

My mics may not be going up in value, but at least my batteries are.....
