Acording to pacg 15 of the user manual:

http://www.apogeedigital.com/pdf/minimp_usersguide.pdf

It should pull no more then 3Watts or about 500mA at 6V or 250mA at 12V. - It definitely shouldn't be pulling more then a AD2K or Portico.

You may want to contact Apogee to see if this is normal - What voltage are you running it at?

May be a cap is going bad or some other component is failing internally causing this issue.

When I had one it easily ran 4.5hrs.+ on an Initial RB-276 DVD battery. It does sound like there is a good chance that something is wrong with the unit.

The mini mp at question here is mine I just ran a test mk21>kcy>vst>mini mp> 744 using a ancient DVD battery 5400 mah at 9 volt and I'm at 5 hrs 45 and have 1 lights left so I'm going to assume something perm had going on was the issue plus the unit has been ran by team Richmond with no issues.I stop testing  at 5 hrs 45 mins so im sure i could have made it 6 hours

Looks like my battery took a crap. Brand new battery geek. Not normal for them.
