Sounds like a good idea to me.  No reason why the XLRs couldn't
support a set of AAs so long as the XLRs are mounted firmly.

Can you get a panel mount 4XLR that is not recessed?  It could
protrude from the battery pack, which would allow the pack to hug the
camera, reducing the leverage on the connector.

Hi Warren,
What if I mounted female xlr socket into the case itself and just
plugged it directly into the male xlr on the pilotone module?  Do you

think the xlr connector is robust enough to handle it?  The batteries

are pretty small and not very heavy.
