12v L-Ion for apogee ad1000?
« on: January 24, 2007, 10:59:02 AM »
have no clue whether any L-Ion option would work, due to the huge draw? Thanks, Marc.

One factor to consider is the range under which the device will operate.  12 volts isn't usually 12 volts.. it maybe 14 volts to 10 volts, etc.   You'd want to get a solution that starts near the max voltage.  A lion that starts at 12v will quickly be down to 11v, etc.  My SLA actually starts around 13.5-13.8.

My inverter will take up to 16v and shuts off around 10.5.  So if I were going to replace the SLA, I'd really want to start around 16v.  Otherwise, the voltage would drop below the min before the batteries were actually depleted.  Some batteries may use a regulator but I'd be cautious about noise in that case.

The apogee does not have a "HUGE"  draw, it pulls 1.3 to 1.6 amps per hour.  that gives you many options most lion batteries provide up to 2.8amps so no problem there.   That is also when it has the preamp engaged, it should pull a lot less with only the a/d

I highly recommend the batterygeek.com 10-14-88. It operates anything from 10-14V, obviously including 12V, and is rated for 88 Ah.  I have used it to run my R-4 Pro at several shows now, and have yet to see the top LED go dark.  There is a lot of power in there, and it charges in 3-4 hours from dead empty.

I thought "Shoot, that's a HUGE battery to schlep around to single-evening concerts!".  But then realized it's 8 AH instead of 88 AH.  Cool battery.

plus you can pickup a 4pin xlr splitter and run two devices, like the hd-p2 and the mme.  that's what we do.
i think the website that we got the splitter was martek, or B&H.  either way, we can use one 12V source, split, lasts all night.

It's actually 88 WH and 8.0 Ah

The users guide says it's 11.4V typical and range is 9-12.6V
The website says range is 10-14V and provides no typical.
Not sure which to believe

Give them a call.  I believe that I spoke to Nate, and he was pretty knowledgable and helpful.  This battery has a LOT of power in it.
