8 AA Eneloop Pro Battery Test.  Ignore if you're not interested.



I just did a test with 8 AA Eneloop Pro batteries and four DPA mics.  Got 2 hours and 27 minutes.  So that makes me confident I can get two channels on 8 AA’s alone.  But I need an external pack for more channels.

So, I guess my question is, do I go with the Sony L-mount option, or the Hirose (some external option)? 

Thoughts?

Hirose with external of your choice
use the 8 "AA" for backup and hot swapping the externals

What's the most popular external people are using?

I like the L mount batteries!  Sound devices is selling a rebranded Hawks-wood sled that is really nice.  With this you could use the Hirose as a backup.  I had the double sled initally, but prefer the MX-LM1 better for form factor.

that looks sweet but boy is it pricey.

I know, I got a deal on a used setup with high capacity batteries and 2 chargers. It's my favorite battery setup and I still have a external usbc battery for a backup.

I see this is a new thread, so I guess I have to ask, how long now until the MixPre III-series comes along? ;-)
