Need help with Battery run times
« on: December 09, 2014, 03:20:16 PM »
Hey all,
I've recently stocked up on some batteries but haven't done a test run. Anyone have insight as to how long these batteries will run?
I bought 5 Lenmar 9v 2600 mAh DVD batteries and 8 Tekkeon MP 3300s.
I plan on running the Lenmars for my 6v Lunatec V3, and the Tekkeons for my Tascam HD-P2 (12v). I know I could do run time tests myself, but thought I'd ask if others have any experience/knowledge about what I can expect.
TIA-
Coby

Those lenmars are very low mah.  You be lucky if you get 3 hours out of one on the power hungry v3.

FYI the Lenmar's are not too hard to upgrade...buy some Panasonic 3100mah 18650 Lithium Ion cells and replace...I have one Bryonsos did and it last long time
