Battery life XD-V70
by svenskekocken_2 on 2010-11-06 01:50:42.6510

Hi everybody!

First of all, I come from sweden so excuse my bad english! =)

I have recently bought the XD-v70 microphone, and I've just it once, at a very short gig (like 2 hours). Everything worked like a charm.

But last night I had a four hour gig.

Between each set/break/paus i shut it of complete, not only muted it.

I had to change battery's 3 TIMES!!!

When I put in new batterys the display says "5:50" or something like that.

When it died, and i restarted it, it says "2.20".

Why does it die on me?

Are the batteries useless or is there something wrong with the product?

The batteries that came with the mic didn't last for 8 hours, as stated on the product page either, so......

But if anyone could help me, and as soon as possible I would be very thankful

since I'm pretty fullboked and want a mic that's working correctly! =)

Are you sure you are using alkaline batteries? they are the ones that will give you the 10hr life.

Also the batteries supplied with the mic in the box could well be old.

Try new fresh good brand Alkalines and if you still have problems, return to your supplier for investigation.

Yes ... the most likely explaination is that your batteries are not fresh or they are not alkaline.  Defective hardware is a possibility but try some new batteries.  Regular alkalines when fresh should give you a time of between 7:40 and 8:40 when new and on high power ... more on low power.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
