Did you try running the deck plugged into a brick battery? It works for me and probably adds a week of use and you would fill the memory card before the battery dies

Anyone find a battery that works well for this purpose!

https://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerCore-Ultra-Compact-High-Speed-Technology/dp/B0194WDVHI/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3OOG9D32VW8MP&keywords=anker%2B10000%2Bpower%2Bbank&qid=1672857257&sprefix=anker%2B10000%2Caps%2C141&sr=8-4&th=1

Yep, I've used that Anker, it's awesome. Haven't run the A10 while plugged into it, but can't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

In my experience the A10 and M10 have comparable battery life — I'm curious, RyanJ, did you get longer battery life from the M10 while powering mics off it? That would be expected to draw down the battery more quickly.

Amazon says that model was first available in 2015. If they never made more than one batch, the battery cells could now be 8 years old.
I dunno how long these things last, but you might want to pick a newer product....

Using the same mics (AT853 with 4.7k mod) and using plugin power on both. I usually get about 30 hours with the M10 and about 7hr (one trial) with the A10. I will say that even after a 3-4 hour show, my battery is already 1/2 drained on all 3 A10s I have. All starting at the same time and not powering the mics.

When I put the Sony A10 on a rolled up microphone cable with P48 the periodic click start to happen. If I remove from the cables the click disappear.

Tested with AT3032 - Klotz cabels - Littlebox - Sony A10

This continous clicking happened to me only once when I left my mobile home and adjusted the recoding volume manually.

I am planning on buying a sony A-10 and want to run DPA 4080s into the ext. mic input using a y adaptor(micro dot into stereo mini plug), is this deck capable of supplying power using plug in power without a battery box? I've spoken to Len at Core sound and would like to just plug in and go as sensitive metal detectors seem all the rage in Seattle these days. Bob

sounds like the cables may be the issue, have you tried to duplicate this with a different recorder?

You hit the nail on the head with our local Seattle venues and sensitive metal detectors. I've also been thinking about a DPA set-up as well, with a similar cable. However, I was thinking of pairing it up with this SP key fob battery box:

When I flew to Germany for some Cure shows back in November, my friend, that I was staying with told me about the SP battery box his friend had that looked like a key fob. When I got home, I asked SP about it and they started selling them again. I'm thinking this could be a good pick-up.

That looks cool, wish I hadn't bought a different BB a couple months ago.

Battery Boxes supplying more than 9V are NOT recommended for the DPA 406X series mics!!

I don't think that I would use this 12V battery box with a DPA setup:
