Hello all,

 

Does anyone care to share, which batteries - and where to get them, do you use with the HU3?

 

I have searched everywhere, and there are so many options all with differing mA's, so I thought I would come and ask the pros.

 

 

Thanks in advance,

 

 

B Jonsson

 

 

 

EDIT: just realized - wrong forum.

Hi, Preston HU3 uses standard Sony M-style batteries. The mA is the quantity of power stored in the battery. The higher, the longer it will last, and the bigger the battery pack. It's up to you to chose if you want a battery that lasts long or a light weight one that you would change more ofter (I would go with light one to avoid having your assistant caring a bulky battery for no reason)

EDIT: This is the right forum...
