Schoeps VMS 5U and VMS 02 IB Powering
« on: May 31, 2009, 11:21:57 AM »
The Energizer "Ultimate Lithium" batteries are getting a little expensive to run so I would like to pick up a couple external batts for powering. I currently run the BG 10-14-88  (10-14V 8000mAh(88.8Wh) to power my R4 Pro and have an additional BG10-14-88 as a back-up.  Would the additional BG10-14-88 be appropriate for powering either of the VMS boxes? Below are the powering specs per Schoeps.

Operation with internal batteries (possibly rechargeable):
Number and type of cells: 6 x AA
Recommended battery type: Alkaline
Recommended rechargeable type: NiMH

A user-replaceable fuse protects against reversing the polarity
of the batteries.

Battery life with alkaline cells: ca. 8.5 hours
Battery life with rechargeable batteries: ca. 3 h (700 mAh
NiCd); ca. 5.5 h (1300 mAh NiMH)

External powering:
Coaxial socket, 5.5/2.1 mm

External power supply (not included):
DC (stabilized): 6V, 500 mA – 15 V, 250 mA
The unit can also be operated with an unfiltered voltage from 6 V up to 15 V at the external supply input socket.
AC: 10 - 13 V
External powering with outboard rechargeable battery:
nominal 6 - 12 V

Parallel operation
from a single power supply of a VMS 5 U along with one
or more other pieces of equipment is generally possible,
because of the internal galvanic isolation by the regulator.

An appropriate AC power adapter is available (designation:
VMS 5 DC). Other power adapters with 6 - 15 V stabilized
DC output at 500 mA can also be used.

Thanks in advanced for any help.

should be fine.  i use an impact bpd-8000 to power the vms02ib. 
never tested it to see how long it can go, but a show barely drains anything off it.

i also have several of the $12 5400mah ones off ebay (initial rb-270), but these are for backup... not sure yet how much powering time the vms02ib will get off it but they work.

hey taylor
you should be able to get at about 10-12 hours with the rb-270 and your vms2 1b.

i get about 10 hours on the vms5u with duracell 2650 mah rechargeable nimh batteries.
If it's worth getting off the couch, it's worth taping!

Thanks fellas. Looks like I can get by with 1 rb-270 at the moment and use my other battery Geek batt.

Thanks again,
Jeff
