I have both a Mixpre-6mki, and a Mixpre-6mkii. The AA battery holders that came with them are identical. Sound Devices may have redesigned them at some point, but the Eneloop Pro batteries I use fit both samples I have just fine. I read that you can remove the center rib in the holder if you have oversized batteries you want to use, and the holder will latch to the recorder properly again.
OK first, do they mean overly WIDE or LONG batteries?
I was assuming long but the point about removing the rib makes me consider differently.
I guess you could grind away that rib with a rotating tool like a dremel!?

Every comment I’ve read referred to the batteries being slightly larger in diameter than the “standard” AA dimension. This would cause the holder to swell along its length, preventing the holder and its latch from fully engaging. I imagine the plastic would be soft enough to nip out with some cutters, but I’d go for sawing it out with a rotary cutter blade on a Dremel tool.
