^ Maybe I am the only one, but I like the way that SD has it set up. Lots of options. The 8 x AA sled is perfect for most of the shows I go to and, with a small USB-C, I have redundancy. I think I would rather they keep it small than add an internal compartment for AAs (it would have to be 8 to get reasonable runtime).

Well, I haven't used one of those new SD units myself so I defer to your judgement there.  I didn't know those would have decent runtime with 8 AAs.  FTR, that wasn't what I was envisioning; just 4 AAs internal.  Enough so you could hot-swap your external power.

on a mixpre6, 8 new AA NIMHs can do close to 5 hrs at max load (4 ch phantom power).. but youre at the mercy of your weakest cell and are kinda committed to an 8-cell charger when traveling if doing shows night after night
