Needing an larger external battery and plate. I'm going through 10 batteries in an average day. Anyone recommend anything?

Try Global Media Pro...$400 (3x batteries (4 hrs each) + dual charger (4hrs charging 2 batteries)).
If that's too expensive, then make your own batteries, but be careful to keep the voltage and current flow constant. Before I bought my GMP batteries, I used a diesel generator to power my camera via a UPS (how crazy is that?). The experiment didn't last 2 days, and the APC UPS didn't either.

I've managed to get a plate, but now looking at batteries. So many to choose from. Does anyone know if these are any good?
