If you use rechargeable batteries in this, can they be charged overnight by connecting the MixPre3 to a USB port?
Asked by: Chris
No you can power the recorder via USB while recording or via the rechargeable AA batteries, however they need to be charged with their own charger outside the recorder.

Does this work as well with the MixPre-3 II?

Does this work as well with the MixPre-3 II?
Asked by: Ian
I don’t see any reason why it won’t work with MixPre3 I but you should double check with Sound Devices. As far as I know the new model has the same size and style chassis as the original model.

Are we able to use 8 iPower rechargeable lipo batteries with this sled?
Asked by: Oscar
It is not recommended to use rechargeable lithium batteries with a Mixpre series recorder. Sound Device does recommend using 1.5v non-rechargeable lithium batteries, or higher powered NiMH batteries such as B&H # PAKJ17KHCA4A.
