I am just going to run at 14v for now. I have 2 pairs and an extra battery to add to the mix too.  I think it was a bad battery.

NP-1 batteries have been around for over 20 years at least - one of the first portable dat's used them (Sony PCM-2000)

Also the hhb portadat used them and my hs-p82 can use them (but due to there size on li- on np-1's only last upto 1 hr 30 min or so)

The are lion and NnMhd versions ( I bet the originals where nicad)

Also there are AA battery sleds in NP-1

Brand new Tekkeon arrived today. Used my other set twice last weekend with no issues at 14v.

Has anyone seen this?

It's been discussed here on ts in the past but it never hurts to remind folks that some of these batts had problems.

I am almost positive I figured out the problem with my Tekkeon. The cable I had made had a short in it. I figured that out by slightly melting another Tekkeon. It doesn't look near as bad as the other, but doesn't work with the cable I had redone . My other Tekkeon set works great with the new cable.

Did you make the cable using the stock cable that came with the unit? I just found out the stock cable I was using (re-terminated to a 4-pin mini xlr) had a bad solder joint on one of the grounds. Made a new cable and the problem is solved.

yeah mine got super hot once in about that spot, I figured out it was a short as well. I could gently push it in one direction to prevent it from happening. I was using a right angle cable and I'm not sure that was helping maintain appropriate contact.

It was working on and off. Then I saw it coming apart, but it was too late unfortunately. I don't know what to tell Tekkeon this time. :(

Use AC?  I just don't get the battery love here.  Haven't really ran on them in 5 years.

Some of us do not have access to AC power. Of the five venues I record in most only one has AC power available and the location of the power point is less than ideal and using an extension cord is not possible. Thus my "love" of battery power.

LOL. I would love to get an AC plug and free wifi. These things happen rarely.
