Recording time for mixpre6 with various battery options?
« on: December 11, 2017, 07:56:54 PM »
Hola - I have a mixpre6, an anker power bank usb-c, the normal 4aa sled, and the Sony L battery sled.  I have two 570 L batteries.

Can anyone tell me how long the unit will run with 4 mics all with phantom power with those battery options?  I hope to be able to use the unit for 2 hour shows using the L battery sled but have not yet used it, and don’t know how long it will last...thanks

Extensive (12 pages) of discussion here: http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=182362.msg2246778#msg2246778

I have no direct experience, but believe many have been helped by the information within.

Two 570’s will give you about 3 hours run time. I can’t remember what sort of time I was getting from 4 AA but with 8AA Enloop Pros I’m at 5+ hours.
