What  Sample/bit setting....light on or off...LED brightness?

These things all affect the power consumption of the 722.

If we're going to compare battery run times, we need to have a standard for everyone to use to compare their batts.

I suggest this:

Sample / bit  96/24

light on

meter LEDs dimmest setting

phantom on

mediia: HDD

unit actually recording with some input signal

If we all use the same parameters for testing, the comparisons will have more meaning.

there is not gonna be any standard unless we all use the same mics, every mic uses more current, the 480's are rated a 2ma, the 414's are 4ma, so thats half the life of the battery right there

cool, i believe the 480/460 both suck down 2ma, so that means i will get pretty decent runtimes as well :)

i used to get  10 hrs easily going 480>v3(phantom/ansr/aes and spdif active/etc) going into my v3 :)

i will try the stcok battery next week
but remember
not alll batteries run the same and all results may vary

wow! i don't want to sound like negative nancy but those runtimes seem unreal. i know most people were getting around 5-6 hours with the 6000mAh batteries. i was getting 6 1/2 or so in really hot coniditions this weekend running line in. i need to run some similar tests to verify.

anyone done any playback tests for battery life?

i would think it would get much better run times playing back as opposed to recording but found that the playback I have done drains the battery almost as quickly. just curious if anyone has done any actual tests.

Hi Nate,
 
We recently ran some tests with the Sony NP-F970 battery (6600 mAh) with great results. Powering one condenser microphone while recording to the hard drive, the Sony battery achieved a total of 7 hours of continuous record time when fully charged.

also, shouldnt a 6800mah battery be bigger in physical size than a 6000mah one?

reason i ask is, i got a 6000mah one w/ my 722, and its stamped on the back that its 6000mah, well then i ordered a 6800mah supposedly off of ebay for only 26 shipped and its not stamped 6800mah anywhere and its the same physical size as my 6000mah one ???

was that just a sales pitch ?

still not bitching, i can easily get 6-6.5 hrs from a 6000mah one, and for 26 shipped, thats a great deal IMO

i have a question for you 722 folks:

ok, here goes, my smaller batteries for the 722, i have a 1850mah, and 3000mah and a 4600mah and they all lock into the lion battery slot, however when i place my 6000mah and my 6800mah batteries into the lion slot, they dont 'lock' in, i can remove them w/ out depressing the locking pin

does anyone else have this same 'problem' ???

i couldve sworm they locked in before, but i could def be wrong since its hard to see that locking pin, i always just pushed a pen at it and removed the battery

anyone?

ALL my batteries lock into the 722.

I don't see how the batt. wouldn't lock, unless it was not fully plugged in.

If the batt. is not allowing the lock pin to pop up, maybe you can file the plastic batt. case to remove just enough plastic to allow the pin to pop up.

BTW...were you recording at 96/24 during your batt. tests?

My large battery no longer locks in also. It did when I first got it but after a few shows it doesnt anymore. I guess it expanded from the heat of charging or running 5hrs under the 722.

nice me too!

ive seen alot of those on ebay, but do you really think theyre worth 2x the money over the generic ones ??? my generic 6000mah ones hold a charge quite well, ive been getting 6.5 hrs off of one w/ phantom on, backlight off, 24/96, and writing to the 40GB HD

im running more batt tests now just to see constant runtimes

FWIW, i think cycling the batts about 6 times is what its all about, you HAVE TO cycle the batts at least 4 times for them to maintain charges, ive done my fair share of lion studying and this is the most common point to keeping your lion batts for a long time and holding steady charges

if so, im gonna start buying the genuine sony ones :)

first off these are higher capacity 6600 vs 6000.

the main reason I've stuck with the genuine because of quality - read too many posts and even had one generic have the little female ends that the pins go into come out while swapping. for me the extra $20 is well worth the piece of mind (and the extra 600 mAh)

agreed.

i had some of the cheaper ones and one wouldnt charge, the other had the pins slide out just as mentioned.
Cascade was cool and exchanged, but it was a royal PITA.

with all the thousands we spend on gear, what's another 20 bucks to be sure we have solid power that we know wont fail on us at the wrong time...

i have been buying supposedly 6800mah ones but they last just about the same as the 6000 generic ones and also are the same physical size as the 6000mah ones, so therefor i think the 6800mah ones are really 6000mah ones

are your 6600mah ones physically bigger than the 6000mah ones ???

is there a nice charger that tells the mah capacity ???

really?

looks like im not buying anymore cheapie ones then, SS sent me a generic 6000mah one and i bought a 6800 generic one and the stock one that came w/ my 722 is a 4600mah one, and it also seems to be generic, so if SD is sending generic ones, dont you think theyre good enough?

i agree w/ you tho, after spending 2400 on the 722, whats 20 more dollars per battery?

also, what charger are ya'll using? just the 722?

i have a lenmar duo charger that teddy sent me w/ the portabrace purchase that charges two at a time, the 722 charger and  the charger SS sent me w/ the 722, i believe its a generic charger as well

have you two been unplugging/replugging the the 722 back in once its charged? it seems to charge for another 20 minutes ort so topping the bigger batteries off when using the 722 to charge them

i haven't held a generic and genuine sony side by side but I borrowed a couple generics that Ian had for Wakarusa and I think they were slightly smaller than my 6600 ones.

you just gotta keep checking ebay, i've scored 2 or 3 off of ebay now and they were all around 45-60 shipped. a lot of people will do a high shipping charge so their item appears to sell for cheaper. i don't think ebay takes a cut of shipping charges either.

FWIW..  Neutrik told me that have big trouble with counterfeit speaker cables on ebay. Most of the Tiffany stuff on ebay was fake until ebay was sued for not doing much about it.

I've had great luck with my generics but will buy sony when I replace them.. Just not sure from where.

im having runtime problems w/ a generic 6800mah one i scored off of ebay, i have cycled it 3 or so times already and cant get more than 4-4.5 hrs out of it, thats with phantom on/backlight off/leds on lowest setting/and writing to the HD ONLY

i guess it did take my 6000mah one that came w/ the 722 about 3-4 cycles to maintain a 6.5 hr runtime but WTF ??? this thing is worrying me

once i get 3 more sony 6600mah ones i'll be selling these generics off anyway, and they'll already be cycled and everything :)

i think 4 x 6600 mah sony batts and a 4600mah batt should get me thru about any festie

im gonna try recording at 24/48 and see if i get much better runtimes that way

any info on other folks runtimes would be great, and also what style of batts you all are using

id ideally like to use the sony 6600mah batts and leave the backlight ON most of the time, but if i can get consistent 6 hrs of runtime w/ the backlight on, i guerss im gonna have to leave it off :P

oh and ive only recorded two shows with the 722 and LOVE IT, ive had it basically running for 2 weeks straight doing batt runtime tests, and the damn thing is a tapers dream, so easy to use and you can start recording w/ in about 5 secs from OFF>ON>RECORDING

cant wait for the two moe shows im doing next weekend too ;D

ok folks, so my 6800mah battery STILL wont condidtion/cycle and maintain a full charge for 6+ hrs like the otehr one

i talked to mojan at SS and she said if the lions sit on the shelf for longer than a few months, that is what happens :'( they dont condidtion well at alla nd lose teir ability to hold a good charge, and after this issues im having w/ this batt, i believe her 100%

so hopefully these genuine sony ones dont have this problem, otherwise, i'll be moving to 12v NIMH external power :(

The three 6000mAh packs I have from battery bank are all solid performers

The only issue is that when I run them in the sun (like Bonaroo) they get so hot that the female terminals want to stay on the male terminals and they slide out of the shell.  If you know to expect that, recovery is pretty easy but I think a speck of superglue would fix it.

this is weird, ive been cycling my 6000mah batteries and the first 2 times i ran each of them, i got 6+ hrs, now that ive cycled them a few times, ive only gotten 4+ hrs going phantom to 480's/backlight off/lcd on lowest/writing to the HD ???

WTF?

i got more time when i ran backlight on w/ them ???

im gonna keep trying, and fwiw, the batts are 970 ones off of ebay

Same here. My 6800maH only gets around 3hours now, and my
4600maH won't even take a charge and is totally dead. I got
4 hours with the 4600maH on the first run. If I could
consistently get 3 or 4 hours on the 4600maH, it would be
perfect, as I like the size better for stealthing.

okay, so i picked up a new Sony NP-F970 off eBay, plug it into the 722, and it doesn't appear to push all the way in, though i still need to push in the release button to get the battery out.  i assume it's making contact and it appears to be charging properly, yet after it's been "charged" i remove the power cord, press the On button, and i get nothing.  No juice, no nothing.  the only way to get this Sony battery to "come alive" is by plugging the AC adapter in, turning the 722 on, then removing the AC adapter on the fly, where the battery finally kicks in.

anyone else experience weird behavior such as this?  or might i have a beat battery?  at this point i'm not confident in this battery at all  :-\

thanks.

Okay, looks like I found my problem. A friend who owns a Sony camcorder brought it to work yesterday along with his NP-F960 battery, and I brought in my 722 and NP-F970 battery.

Plugged my NP-F970 into the camcorder and voila, it slid right onto the contacts, clicking into place, and the unit powered right up, no problem. Grabbed his NP-F960 and slid it onto the 722 and "click"...full contact with the 722's terminals, covering them completely as they should, with the release button fully up and...lo & behold, the 722 powered right up.

I took both batteries and placed them side by side, contacts up, and noticed the wells on one looked deeper than the other. Grabbed a toothpick and placed it (gently) into the contact wells of each battery, and what did I find? The 960 wells are 4/16" deep, the 970 wells are 3/16" deep, therefore the lack of full contact on the 722 with the NP-F970. How about that?

So, at this point I am looking to cut my losses as I'm past the 7-day return period so I ask my pal if he'd be up for a battery trade and he was. He gets a higher-capacity Sony battery for his camcorder and I get a Sony battery that while not as high in capacity, gives me peace of mind and a working battery, so we both win.

I just wonder if this is a known problem on all NP-F970's? I was tempted to push the wells in to see if they'd go deeper but didn't want to risk puncturing the well bottom.

Anyway, just wanted to share this for the record in case anyone else has the same, or a similar, problem.
