It depends on the mAH rating of the lithium/AA batteries you're using and how long the damn things have been sitting on the shelf.

I get 4+ hrs out of my Powerex 2000mAH NiMH rechargable AAs.

the blue package e2 lithiums will run a D8 for over six hours...

two run my M1 for two sets, the ride home, and a first set the next night. BUT - the battery meter is not reliable at all because it is calibrated for NiMh batteries...  it will go from 2 bars to straight up OFF in like 15 minutes. it may not even show one bar or flash at one bar at all.

i have run the e2 blues in both my M1 and D8 with much success, but the best advice i can give is to run 'em for six hours then chuck 'em, no matter what the meter says.


i just got powerex 2000s for xmas, with the quick charger, can't wait to run 'em tomorrow!

from 2 bars to straight to zero...exact same thing happens to me.  it will be full for a long time and then once it hits two bars it goes to dead in like 15 minutes.  very strange.

it's because of the nature of how lithium batteries operate and release amps, some one gave a better answer a few weeks back.

I would suggest using NiMH rechargeable AAs. They will save you a ton of $$ in the long run and even the short run compared to lithium batteries.

I've got the 2200mAH batteries for my D100 and SBM-1 and they run both units for 4+ hours easy. Now I'm waiting to get a reliable Hard Drive recorder so I never have to worry about buying tapes or batteries ever again  ;D

i power my d8 with a 6v battery.  That sucker will go for days.   Id rather carry a 6v with me than change batteries in and out.
