Does anyone still refurb/work on DVD battery's??
« on: April 03, 2019, 01:36:23 PM »
I have one of these that takes and holds a charge but no longer outputs power.  so assuming something is wrong with the output connection.

If anyone can use this just pay shipping and it's yours.    Battery only no charging cable as I need it for the 1 remaining battery I have.

i was surprised and delighted when i busted out the V3>AD2K rig for first time in a decade that the old tekkeons i had were fine. didnt do detailed runtime tests on either, but with one battery each on the V3 and AD2K I ran a 2.5 hour set and were still about half charge afterwards
in:
small: MK4/4V > CMR > V3 or J.Williams Mod MicMan Jr or no pre at all >AD2K/R07/PCM-A10/Oade Warm 661/DR100-MKIII

smaller: 4061/4099 CORE or 4011/4018V> d:vice MMA

Most folks have now moved on.  The cells could be replaced, but the ultimate death of my DVD batteries was the loss of function of the built-in power meter, after which I no longer dared rely on them. 

Take a look at TalentCell an inexpensive and more or less a direct replacement with similar functionality and increased capacity for the same size.  Primary difference is TalentCell has an on/off rocker switch, where DVD batts were "always on".  Various capacities are available, all of which exceed old DVD batt capacity.  I think the smaller ones around the size of old DVD batts may only provide 12VDC and 5V USB out, but if you need 9V, the larger ones have both 9V and 12V ports that can be used simultaneously.

I made the switch a few years ago and have not looked back since.

Did you find anything smaller or lighter than the DVD batteries?
Looks like I'll need to replace 4 of them and that's 4 lbs I'd like to lose!

I bought the bigger size TalentCell (about the size of two DVD batteries) and it can run my rig for an entire weekend fest, which used to require about two DVD batteries per day.  But I bought a second as backup so I typically alternate them day to day.  The smaller ones are about the same size as one DVD battery and I bet two of those will do you in place of 4 older DVDs quite easily.

Completely agree with Gutbucket on this one.  The TalentCell batteries aren't that much bigger or heavier but last a LOOOOOOONG time.  Everybody I know up my way who's still in the game made the jump to these at the start of the summer and none of us have looked back.
