Re: Eclair ACL Battery Options

Hi all:

They're a bit big, but I've been running my ACL w/ HD motor and 400' mags
off of NP-1's for awhile.  They can be had for a little less than $100 each
new, but if most of you are like me, you've got a bunch sitting around
already from video gear, etc.  I just put velcro on the mag and velcro on
the battery, and use a little battery cup adapter made by Trew audio in
Nashville (they have a website, but I can't remember the address).

Our video tap (CEI on an SRII, not ACL) eats a lot of current.  I'd
expect it to severely reduce your running time.  Our tap consumes 680
mA.  If yours is similar, you'll be eating up half your capacity with
the tap, which you'll probably be using more than just for the exact
filming time (don't you use the tap some for setup, rehearsals, etc?)

In fact, as compact as those packs are, why not make up a separate
one just for the tap?  Would it add that much extra weight?

Yes, hit recycle button and Richard Karn comes out of your charger.
How DO
they do it?? (-;

They are 1400ma and it is a very reasonable, compact, reliable power
I'll let you know how long they run the camera and the videotap.
It'll be a
while until I do the modification though.

...Then I hit the 'recycle' button on my

...PS...remember to recycle your NiMh and NiCad batteries.  Any
Radio Shack or
Circuit City will take them.  Just ask at the cashier's desk, or
the Richard Karn (Al, from TV's 'Home Improvement') posters.  For
information, log on to www.rbrc.org ....

Let me get this straight--you push the recycle button on the
and Radio Shack comes out and picks up your old batteries? :-)

Seriously, what  capacity are your NiMh cells--1400 mAh?  Sounds
a very nice, compact power source!
