Re: Wedding Audio sound via Zoom H4n and camera sync?

Fantastic news Warren, that's exactly what I was hopeful of with the 2700mah rechargables. What charger are you using?

Chris,
I really don't know much about the H4n as of yet, but maybe someone here can give you some advise. Or possibly start a new post in the audio forum.

Take care

Re: Wedding Audio sound via Zoom H4n and camera sync?

I started using mine for weddings, but the batteries never seem to last anywhere near where they should. Normally I have it plugged in, but my "boss" will give me KIRKLAND batteries and they literally last half an hour with phantom power on at 48/16 or 48/24 running the built in mics and a single Sennhesier G3 lav.

The battery bars will start acting up 5-10 mins in and start flashing the third bar on and off and yesterday I had it showing 3 bars, then 2 and then 1 back and forth frequently, going up and down. By 30 mins I had an empty battery with low battery warnings. I'm not sure if my Zoom is messed up or what?

If your using rechargeable make sure you've set that in the settings for accurate battery readings. It's default is alkaline.

I have 4 chargers for all my batteries, both seem to work equally well although I tend to like the Maha more for it's flexibility. I can fast charge, slow charge, and recondition with it.
Maha MH-C808M AA - AAA - C - D Battery Charger

The Accupower is a fast charger only, but charges all batteries including 9v
