Sonosax powering (via 10 X AA sled)
« on: October 05, 2005, 09:02:50 AM »
Rigged this up for the festy at Asagiri after gathering parts from Akihabara.  Used cheap alkalines, 4/100yen (like those Vartas they sell at Ikea, 10/$2) made by GP.  Collected data with my cheapy voltmeter throughout the festy and subsequent shows after (over a three month period):

Initial voltage: 15.80 (I tested it for fifteen minutes before I read the voltage)

After 1:05tt  : 15.08

After 4:35tt  : 14.68

After 5:35tt  : 14.46

After 8:15tt  : 14.28

After 10:30tt : 14.00

Pics of the Lowepro 3 pack it resides in: http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=51490.0

I think you could get 12  hours, no sweat....

Although I dont think making a sled is a bad idea I felt using 2x9.6v RC batteries wired in series to be a better way to go for me. Gives me plenty of record time at festies and local shows. Check out this thread for more info

i read that a bunch, i am gonna use 3 x 7.2v NIMH batts wired in series, thats 21.6v and 3000mah, that should be plenty of power

would a 19.2v>24volt NIMH RC charger be sufficient for the batteries i wired in series ??? i wired 3 x 7.2v 3000mah batts in series to equal 21.6v@3000mah, wouldnt a 19.2>24v charger be ideal?

heres what i was gonna buy......
