AmazonBasic Rechargeable AA -> Tascam DR-680 4 Channels
« on: December 27, 2013, 09:35:40 PM »
I bought some rechargeable batteries for my dr680 in case I ever have an external power issue. Figured I would do a test so I could know what to expect. I'm trying to do all of these tests because when getting and researching 680s I could find very little battery data, so trying to get out what I can. Anyways these aa batteries are quite nice feel very good,

8 Amazon AA rechargeables
10 second backlight
4 channels

Total run time 4hrs 50 minutes

Here is a link to the battery, I'm sure ill get picked in for using them, but as long as they work for the few seconds to minutes a battery may fail in, I am happy.

I would HIGHLY recommend a MahaPowerex MHC-9000 Charger! It will break in the batts and maintain their maximum capacity. I wouldnt trade mine for the world 8)
