Hey Steve, were you able to confirm the the size of the output jack?  Is it an 'N' connector? 

Paging Ted, can you make me a cable for this battery that will power my V3?

Yes but I still need confirmation on the plug size on the battery end.

^I could send you the cable that came with it so you could be certain of the size?  LMK.

The easiest way is to take the battery down to radio shack and try the sample adapt-a-plugs they have.

I just walked over to Radio Shack and tested out the adapt-a-plugs. N felt like the best fit.

I would say yes if it fits a dr680 as reported above.

Is the dc output confirmed as an "n"?

Don't forget to reverse your polarity for this unit  ;D

Trey, the simple answer is...a long time.  But here's a more detailed answer.

First, the battery rating is 18000mah at 3.7v, or 66Wh.  (I can verify from using my Natech that this is probably a good number, although my Naztech seems to spec out at a slightly higher capacity 15000mah at 5V is 75Wh.  Also, the experience testified in this thead seem to confirm that 66Wh probably isn't a bogus capacity claim.)

We need to supply the VMS with 9V minimum, so the battery rating at 9V is 7700mah.

I couldn't find the specs for the 52UB or 02IB, but the specs on the 5U are that it pulls about 230mA, which is really good.  I'd heard that the 5U is just a repackaged and combined 02ib and 52UB, so the current specs are probably similar.  But for conservatism, let's assume that the older preamps aren't as efficient...let's say 400mA.

7700mah / 400ma = 19.25 hours  (if you assume the 230mA number, that goes to 33.5 hours)

So, I'm gonna say you can conservatively assume that this battery will give you 20 hours, but you'd probably be safe if you even took that up to the range of 25 to 30.

This battery looks like a winner but I have a few questions that I hope someone might be able to answer:

1. Is there any possibility of the battery being turned off by its power button being accidentally pressed while in use, or does it lock that button as well (along with the voltage button) when it's connected to a device?

2. The USB output appears to be of proper specs (5v/500mAh) but has anyone successfully run a USB-powered device off it?  (ie: SD USBPre2, etc.)

3. Has anyone successfully run two devices off this battery at the same time, one via the DC output and the other via the USB output?

Thanks in advance for any info.

1)  There is no power button, so the battery can't be switched off accidentally.  The left button doesn't turn the battery on and off, in spite of the fact that the button has that power symbol ebossed on it.  The left button has several functions...first, hold it down briefly to see what the battery level is at...the number of bars.  Second, hold for three seconds to switch on the bettery.  That also on the display so that you can see what the voltage setting is.  It also turns on a backlight for the display.  Press and hold again to switch the display battery off.  Finally, with the battery/display switched on, hold down the right button for 3 seconds to cause the voltage setting to start flashing.  Once voltage setting is flashing, press the right hand button repeatedly to toggle through the various voltages.  At the voltage you want, press the left hand button and hold for three seconds to set the new voltage.

2)  I've powered my recorders from the USB connection.  My recorders require 5V dc.  Both of my recorders (DR100MKII and DR2D) both run for a LOOOONG time...at a festival they both get to the 4th day before I need to worry about the battery going dead.  I've never run it dead during a festival, but I think the battery would power either of my recorders for an entire four day festival if I didn't have any backup.

3) I wasn't able to verify, but I'm pretty sure that it works with two cables connected simultaneously, one on the USB and another on the output jack.  I'm think I read that this is the case somewhere, either in the literature or the Naztech website.
