PowerEx Batteries!!

I would recommend these batteries to ANYONE who needs some great rechargables.  I had been running Rat Shack 1800mAh until I got these.  As soon as I put the Rat Shacks in the D7, the meter would almost instantly drop from 4 bars(full) to 3.  I taped 2 shows, 3 hours,  at Bumbershoot this weekend with these new batteries before it ever dropped the first bar.  Ended up doing 3 shows on the same set and they still had plenty of juice left.  I only cycled them twice before using them the first time.  They are only supposed to get better.

Similar great experience with the PowerEx AAs here, too - I've used 1800, 2000, and 2200 mAH...all are great!

I need to get a new AA and 9v charger setup. I'm inspired. ;)

9v may be my next investment.  Only use one and it goes forever anyway, no sure if it would be worth it or not.

I hope I don't sound stupid, but what's the difference between the 1800, 2000 and 2200?

Higher capacity = longer run-time.

Let's say a device draws 400 mA.  And I'm using 1800 mAH capacity batteries.  The run-time is roughly:  capacity / device draw.  So in this case, 1800 mAH / 400 mA = roughly 4.5 hrs of run-time.  Using the same device, the 2200mAH  will provide an extra hour of run-time:  2200 mA / 400 mA = roughly 5.5 hrs of run-time.  I say roughly because I've never gotten 100% utilization out of any battery.

A full show, 3 hours, seemed to run them down pretty good.

These work well also. Never had a sbm or d100 fall below 4 bars after 3.5 hours with it.

Stats: 1800mAh NiMH Typical ( Averages 1900 to 2000 mAh), 6V, 500mA


So I checked this thing out, pretty neat!  What caught my eye:
"MH-DPB180-SD Nickel Metal Hydride Version - STEP DOWN VERSION"

 - this thing is apparently a cable designed for cameras requiring between 5V and 6V to help regulate the 6V output it's giving.

*SO* I wonder if I could use this thing to externally power a JB3?!?  How cool would that be!  Any thoughts from JB3'ers out there?  Doesn't it require something between 5 and 6V's?  It's almost cheaper then the extra spare battery I just bought was as those extra batteries are becoming *scarce*.

i've used a set of these Lenmar 2300mAH NiMH in my M1 for 4hrs without a single problem. still had power to rewind and playback to further drain them when i was finished taping.
