Battery Life

Postby dandi on Sun Feb 05, 2012 3:58 pm

Hi, I seem to be running through batteries. I am using it in "Always On" mode. Is it possible to use re-chargables 1.5v I once got some whilst in the US.

We don't recommend rechargeable because they hold quite a bit less charge than good non-rechargeables so often won't last a full day in the field.

How long are you actually getting from a battery?
A good one should last about 12 hours unless you are doing a lot of replay - which uses more energy than recording.
We find lithium batteries last longest.
Beware cheap imitations especially if buying well known brands overseas. There are a lot of fake Duracells out there.
