With the Anker batteries recommended by Sound devices does the usb c insert completely into the jack.  On mine it doesn't there is some of the metal usb c part that sticks out.  I'm thinking that shouldn't be happening.  On another usb c battery I have the cable sets fully inserted, but that battery doesn't get a green light with the mixpre6.  Thanks

I'm not 100% but I will be bringing mine to Billy Strings on Thursday and you are welcome to check it out.

Anyone recommend a 1 foot usb c > usb c??  Doesn't need to be right angle.

A little shorter than a foot....but this is the one I have been using....

Their new website is a chaos. The specifications of the MixPre Three mention balanced line out on TA3 connectors, included 8 AA battery sled, etc.

I guess they will improve it. But I preferred the old one, it was very nicely organized.

Sounds like they're getting it mixed up with the MixPre10T which has those specs.

That happened with mine too. At first it worked fine, but later on I had a few shows where it came loose and was only running on the AA's (which nearly ran out of juice). It never really came loose on the MP6 side, but it did on the battery side. I regulated that battery to phone duty.

I switched to this battery and it's been flawless. Cable goes in all the way. Plenty of power. I switched to another cable, but it was just one I had lying around.
