Powering V3 in 2011
« on: December 13, 2011, 12:27:11 AM »
Been using the 722 as an AIO for a while now. Love the small footprint, love the sound, love having one less box to power.

But I miss the Grace sound sometimes, and have been thinking about pulling this bad-boy out of retirement. My old Wally-world DVD battery is long-dead and I haven't kept current (no pun intended) with powering options.

These are decent dvd batteries and readily available, but be warned that it might not actually arrive as a 51 Wh battery. Several of us picked these up in the retail section from and they were actually 48 Wh, which is still quite good. I was happy with my purchase and assume it would run a 6v V3 about as long as you'd ever need.

If you get a multi-voltage battery (e.g. a tekkeon or the energizer one) than when you aren't running the V3, you can use it as redundant power for the 722.

I can't seem to find a reference to an Energizer One, do you have a link to one?  Also, which model Tekkeon?  I have a 6v V3 and a many year old DVD battery that will run the V3 for probably 4 hours.  I am looking for something new to power the V3 and use the DVD 9v as a backup.  Thanks!

Mike Grace suggested the Tekkeon batteries (PowerRunner specifically - replaced by the MyPower series) to me for use with the V3.

Thanks!  I have a PowerRunner to power my HD-P2 and it has been a workhorse.  I wish they still made them.

I was thinking of this:
http://www.amazon.com/Energizer-XP18000-Universal-External-Netbooks/dp/B002K8M9HC

One wasn't a model, it was as in "that one over there", sorry about that.

really what you're looking for is a battery that can handle multiple voltages. The tekkeon (3450 and 3450i models) are great and I still use one, but if that's not your speed there are others. I use a 3450i model, but I like both the larger capacity and dipswitches. Whether that's worth the additional expense can be different for everyone.

I'm DEAD serious. I would carry SLA if I still had a v3. They were tested to work reliably and are easy to use and power a v3 forever ;)

Thanks, but will never carry lead again.
