Have you actually run 14.8 volts into your DR-680?  I thought one of the questions was if the DR-680 can truly handle almost 3 volts over the rated power supply of 12.0 volts @ 2.5 amps/30 watts maximum, which is what the Tascam  PS1225L power supply puts out.   Anybody run more than 12 volts into their 680 yet?

Well, now I want to buy a DR-680, but I don't even tape shows or concerts! ! This summer I would like to record some thunder storms. Already I have purchased a Rode NT4, , a AT822, Sony MDR7506 cans, and a M10, Now I want this. Have I lost it?

The Dr680 may be good but don't get carried away just yet. Perhaps you can get a used sound devices mp2 / mixpre / MM-1 (although that's only one channel) or naiant littlebox to capture the thunderstorms.
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
