That was my next question!  I use Maxoak K2 batteries and they are rather large. 


Looks like it would work well with the MP6, but looks small for the MP10

Nope, perfect fit. I originally bought it for an MP-6. When I upgraded, it just slid right in. With room to spare for the fairly large LiPo battery I use, to power it

I've been using a Sachtler SN601 and it can hide the Maxoak in the camel hump it has on the back and have room for recorders, cables etc in the bag itself for easy access. Plenty of room to configure it how you want.

Thank you, just ordered one.
 
I use this and have the 8 aa sled as a backup.  It will run forever.  Had Ted build me a battery cable.

I have a right angle hirose to a 5mm male DC plug that looks like it will work. Assuming I use the 12V port. Correct?

Are we sure that its the "M" tip? In the product listing it shows the "M" tip as a rectangular but the picture of the device shows a round port for 12v.  Does anyone know definitively what plug this uses so I know what to ask for from Ted?  I'll be getting a 10ii here soon and want to get a start on getting a cable for this 50000mah batter.  Thanks in advance!

I don't own one of these, but people sometimes ask me for recorder recommendations and I was wondering if users on this thread can speak to the long-term durability and reliability of the MixPre series. As someone who recently acquired a 788, I don't expect these to have the tank-like construction of the 7 or 8 series, but I'm curious to know how these have been holding up. The only complaints I'm aware of are possible flimsy construction of the powering sleds. What has been your experience?

At work (university) we got a 10T after some 10 years of running two 722s since 2005. Then a few years later, got a 10II. No problems at all, we'd use them at least several times a week. We always ran the OEM AC power pack with the 8AA pack as the backup. The 8AA pack is somewhat complicated and I'm surprised it actually didn't break. I'd take out the cells maybe every 4 months to recharge.

If you have power problems and call SD Support, the first thing they ask is to bend the power pack tabs in, where they go into the recorder. If you go through the Hirose, that is not a problem.

I have some photos of my personal 10II with the top off if anyone is interested.

I think Ted has a 10, so he will likely know what is needed without you specifying.

Yes, I use two of the Maxoak batteries. M tip is the way

The only complaints I'm aware of are possible flimsy construction of the powering sleds. What has been your experience?

I was a pretty early adopter; I have had my MixPre-6 first generation for nearly seven years now. Aside from one small issue when new (which SD handled quickly and professionally), it has been really solid. Everything is still tight and works perfectly. I admit I was skeptical about the 8xAA battery sled at first, but it has also stood the test of time. I am very careful with my gear, and don't tape as often as some people here, but I also travel pretty extensively so it has spent a lot of time bouncing around on trains, buses, trams, and long walks...

I second this. I've had a MP6/MP10T and now a 6II and 10II. Only thing I have had to replace are the plastic components, knobs/battery sleds. The Hirose placement on the 10 scares me, but no issues as of yet on either model.

I got a mixpre6 off the first batch of 7 that were sold by Gotham in 2017.  Never had a single problem, with the exception of one firmware issue that was resolved very quickly.  I sold it to a friend that still uses it when I bought my mixpre 10 II.  I haven't had any issues with my MP 10 II and I've be running it since 2021.
