          Comments about Marantz RB-1651 - NiMH Rechargeable Battery Pack:

          Beware: the actually battery life when used in the PMD-671 field recorder with phantom mic power on is only 3.5 hours, not 6-7 hours as stated in the Marantz user manual. With phantom power turned OFF, it lasts 5 hours. Also, there is no manufacturing date code, so there's no way to know if this battery is new or old stock.

          NiMH better than NiCd

            Comments about Marantz RB-1651 - NiMH Rechargeable Battery Pack:

            NiCd develops "memory"; NiMh can be conditioned to erase "memory" by the, yes, mandatory charger, which also does a great job at charging and also discharging the battery with monitoring which maintains it in optimum operating condition.

            Now, nothing beats the Marantz 661 recorder with NiMh AA rechargeables but if we have to stick to the previous version (660) this is an excellent battery.

            This powers my portable Marantz CF recorder...
            it works great, but had to purchase a seperate charger, had I bought the NiCd it would have charged in the unit itself
