Tascam DR-2d Portable Digital recorder
I see America Digital has a sale on the Tsacam DR-2d recorder...nice features:

* Built-in stereo condenser microphones

* Up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV recording or MP3 recording modes

* Records to SD or SDHC cards

* Auto-recording function

* Limiter, low cut filter, auto gain for input

* Variable Speed Audition

* USB 2.0 connection for file transfer

* 1/8" stereo microphone input

* 1/8" stereo line input

* 1/8" stereo headphone output

* 128x64 backlit LCD display

* Powered by two AA batteries or optional PS-P520

* Built-in speaker

* Includes wireless remote control, 2GB SD card, AA batteries and carrying pouch

But the coolest of all:

* Dual recording function records a copy of your audio at a lower level, so you always have a backup in case of overload

Yes, got it and it works great, other than battery life is on the weak side.

Yeah I got it about a 2 months ago. We have used it at 3 weddings. I used Duracell Ultra batteries and it seems to run about 4 hours. I use these same batteries in The Erdirol R09-HR and the Marantz PMD-620 and get 6 to 8 hours.
The Manual says to expect 6 hours, but I say its close to 4. (maybe using lav plugin power drains it quicker, I have not it tried without a lav.)
Great sound, but a little heavy for pockets, but so far no complaints from Grooms.

Nicw Work!. I think I will try the Powerex, since they are the winner for you as well as great reviews @ Amazon.

Thanks again

Brack - I may have missed it, but do you have a link to your charger?

I, like many others, used rechargables - even NiMH - years ago and got burned with a set that was supposedly fully charged, backups went out early too, and I said no more. Been using alkalines only since 2005 or so.

I definitely never used a conditioning charger and that was a problem, I'm sure. This looks like a charger folks on the other thread are recommending.

The whole setup with 16 AAs is about what you'd pay for something like 200 Duracells. My opinion, for us, is that I don't think it would make much of a financial difference (at least for a couple of years) considering human nature and there would be times when not enough were charged up and we used some alks anyway...but there is the landfill aspect to consider. I'll run it by Da Boss.
