i use a $5 4AA box with usb plug
many others use something like this http://www.amazon.com/iphone-ipod-lithium-External-battery/dp/B000YOXTHI/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1239109911&sr=8-9
you just need one that allows you to change the plug aqs i am 99% sure all usb outputs 5v - which you need

Please, can you link me "$5 4AA box with usb plug"?

On a side note, if you're going to run the sp-cmc-8's you may think about using hyper capsules in a stadium.

What are "hyper capsules"?

About battery box, I need Bass Roll-off option?

Willndmb, thank you for your kindness.

hypers are a different pickup pattern from cards
cards are what comes standard with the bodies

bass roll - no not really (pm sent with more detail)

For example? Near to stage? Left or right?

You either want to try getting a nice ambient recording..which ideally would put you on the floor in a position triangulated from both stacks....or attempt a very in-your-face recording with low ambience and crowd noise..which would be obtained from being in front of one of the stacks. Very few bands actually run a true stereo signal from the PAs (this would cause horrible sound for everyone on both sides) so it wouldn't really matter which stacked you were to hump.

Question:
I want recorder 9 shows, I want recharge my internal power two times in two days and three times in 5 days.

1. Coud power damaged?
2. If I want use a external power, must internal battery be fully loaded?
3. At the end, do you think I must buy a Tascam DR-07 to resolve this problem? I'm not good in recoder gear, so I want understand if Microtrack is better than the Tascam DR-07 or they are equal.

Sorry if I make so many questions, please help me because the tour stars soon and I want to be ready.

you can charge it anytime you need to, i don't see how it could damage the battery
i mean if you had to charge it no matter what recorder you have, you need to charge it

NO but the closer it is to full the better because the external will not only be powering the recorder but trying to charge it since both are done off the same jack

??
the mt has a bad rap imo due to them releasing it early and not checking out the bugs - i have never had 1 problem with mine while others hate it

1. Coud power damaged? NO
2. If I want use a external power, must internal battery be fully loaded? NO, I don't pay attention to the power level of my MT and it usually is full after the show dues to the external battery
3. At the end, do you think I must buy a Tascam DR-07 to resolve this problem? I'm not good in recoder gear, so I want understand if Microtrack is better than the Tascam DR-07 or they are equal. It comes down to personal preference. The MT is very versatile, but the DR-07 may be easier to use. Any deck takes time to get comfortable with and really use to it's fullest.

Sorry if I make so many questions, please help me because the tour stars soon and I want to be ready. Good Luck!
