Well, my LIPO's finally gave out when I was in Colorado last month.  95 degree heat will kill lithiums every time.  My bats lasted 6 years.

Any hoot, Jerry installed the following during the original mod:  Max Force 7.4V 900mah 25C 2S1P  Sadly, they're not made anymore.

Below is what I found on the 'net.  GoolRC 7.4V 900mah 25C 2S   They go for about $10/piece and are the exact same size as the Max Force.  They arrived yesterday and charged up fine during the overnight.  Maiden voyage is tonight.

I accidentally pulled out the wires from the PCB when I was replacing my LiPo batteries. I sent it back to Jerry and he compared fixing it to brain surgery. I may have been careless but be extra careful not to put any stress on the wires that go to the PCB when you are replacing the batteries. I think I messed mine up when I was trying to get some batteries that were just a millimeter or two too large to fit in the little space in the case.

Howdy! I might be interested in moving my Aerco MP2 to a new home. It's just not getting the action that it should. It went back to Jerry about 6 months ago to have new batteries installed and fix the battery wiring.

Let me know if you are interested and I can text you some pics and give details. It has most of the usual options - internal rechargeable batts, XLR in, RCA and mini out, stepped gain on one knob in 10dB steps, stepped trim on the other in 2dB steps, on off switch on the back and a DC input on the side plus the DIN connector for charging the batts. Includes the gigantic battery recharger dealio.

I paid $500 and spent another $100+ on batteries and shipping it to Jerry. I'd let it go for $525 shipped. Gotta put a new exhaust on my truck...

Thanks for the response. 

edit- By "DC input", does it run on external batteries as well?

Correct. I have a janky cable for a DVD battery that I can throw in as well.

Touching base from last summer.  I'm happy to announce that the above  GoolRC 7.4V 900mah 25C 2S are excellent batteries for the Aerco.   I finally ran a test this afternoon and got 9 hours and 13 minutes of continuous recording.  Batteries were still working when I decided that was close enough.  So buy the above GoolRC's with confidence.  I bought mine on eBay, but Amazon still has them. 

Rig used for the test:  Nakamichi CM-1000 CP-101 (Sank P48) > Aerco MP-2 > Sony PCM-M10 24/44.1
