AA Battery Type?
Of the three main battery types, lithium primary AA batteries provide the MixPre the longest runtime. A lithium primary battery (non-rechargeable) delivers nearly all of its available capacity (1.5 V @ 3500 mAh) at high current draw. This is ideal in higher power devices like the MixPre.
There are several “lithium” chemistry batteries that appear similar to standard AA 1.5 V lithium batteries but are not suitable for use in the MixPre. Some of these are rechargeable and some of these operate at higher voltages. Using batteries with a voltage higher than 1.5 V may damage the MixPre.
