I think a "Community Cabler" type should get on the hacking the Sony charger idea. I'd pay for that.

I started prototyping, and had some really cool stuff in the works.  But when I posted to verify how much interest there was, it was completely underwhelming, so I immediately stopped.  Copying someone else's work is easy, but actual R&D takes quite a lot of time.

It seems that there is still cONfuSion regarding 6v and 12v Lunatec V3's

If you have a 6v V3 the battery indicator is set to warn you when a 6v battery is running low.
But you can still power it with 6-12 volts. It's just that the battery indicator won't work properly when using the higher voltages.
A 12v V3 will run on anything from 6-12v too. But, the battery indicator will not work properly when powering it with less than 12v.

it's been 10-11 years but if someone is really worried can't they just pop off the cover and set the jumpers to either 6v or 12v? I vaguely remember doing this in a parking lot before a show.

Is anyone else using the Naztech PB15000 to power your V3?

That's what I use.  I run it a 9V, my V3 is a 6V version.  Never an issue.

a question with regards to the Naztech PB15000 and powering a V3. I've got a PMD-661 and the V3, will the PB15000 power both units at the same time ok? I see that the batt outputs 12V of course, but also 5v from the usb port....I tried it briefly and it seems to work fine. Or should I just power the 661 separately? Thanks!

Should be fine powering both, but unplug the USB port when not in use it will be active even if the battery is off.

I have done this a number of times with a tekkeon so the Naztech should be no problem

decided to try the sled idea with the 722 batteries for my V3. I used a cable from Ted and then soldered it in to the sled. V3 powers up fine. I'll test it this weekend to see what kind of run time I get before taping a show Wed.

There is a chance, though a small chance, that i might have a V3 (6V) next week, which I would like to use for Phish next weekend.  The V3 does not include a battery, so is there a battery/cable I could purchase/order quickly?

Thanks

Moment of truth. Set up for RRE in Milwaukee with Bennett's old batteries.

All went well last night. So much easier than having to turn on the Tekkeons and set the voltage. So nice to have the charge indicator lights and light weight after lugging around 12 volt and then 6 volt ecocharges from 1999-2008. It is also great to have the dual feed so I can swap out one when needed and keep rolling. To top it off waiting at work today was my box from Amazon. I ordered 4 of these:

http://www.amazon.com/Lenmar-DVDU923-Universal-Battery-Portable/dp/B0011MZORU

Ready for EFF Tonedeaf and Bean!


and if this is the battery I would need, fuck, because i literally just sold one I never used for $5 on ebay a couple weeks ago.  I mailed it within 2-3 days and the fucker leaves (positive) feedback saying he just now received it 6 weeks late, but never said anything to me.  He can send it back now.

I heard of a guy on this board that makes all kinds of cables and has a really quick turn around but I hear he is a gear flipper.

That style of "DVD" battery is what I use on my v3 and 10 sonosax preamps that just sit on my shelf and never get used.
