NiMH battery for PMD671
« on: May 18, 2010, 07:49:00 AM »

Might it be possible that this battery could be made to work in the pmd671?
It's 9.6v and eight AA's.  I could add a connector to the 671 and charge externally.
(The Marantz battery is around $100 :o
480b, 460b, Line Audio CM3, SP LSD2, AT BP4025, SP C4,

I don't know what size the battery compartment in your 671 is, but you might want to try for more capacity. is a good company, BTW, and has lots of different configurations of NiMH packs; you can even build your own to fit.

After years of being fed up with the crap OEM NiCads (6x AA NiCad pack rated at 1400mAh, list price $100), I finally crammed a 4600mAh NiMH pack (6x Sub-C cells, $28.00 from AllBattery) into my DA-P1. With minor surgery it only sticks out about 1/16", including the gaffer tape(!) It records approx. 5-6 hrs on the 4600mAh pack, which has more capacity, and only half the weight of the sealed lead-acid external pack I needed previously.
On the DA-P1, I just use the existing DC-In connector for internal charging.
