Save money… Help the world to be a better place…

The main problem when you’re going out for recording is batteries! Our recorders stongly need them to power themselves but most microphones as well through phantom power.

Let alone the fact that you sometimes wait long minutes if not hours before recording and capturing that long time wanted sound…

As soon as I bought my lovely Zoom H5, I quickly noticed that I was going to find myself buying batteries again and again…

And there my thinking was wrong…

I bought packets of cheap batteries at Aldi/Lidl supermarkets, 2,99 euros for 8 AA batteries. Cheap and easily available…

Error… These cheap batteries goes empty in no time, 2/3 hours of use with phantome powered microphones and you’re good to change. It creates pollutant junk and after 10 times, you’re already at 30 euros spent for… Batteries…

Following my sound design professor advise, I visited Ikea shop and bought their LADDA 2450 mAh rechargeable batteries at 6,99 euros for four batteries and the Stenkol charger for 5,99 euros…

Believe me or not, I charged once the four batteries at the end of March, I used my Zoom H5 to record two DJ sets of one hour and a half along numerous recordings both inside/outside with phantom powered microphones through April. As I write today (early May), I still have two bars of battery and still on the first set of two with the two others fully loaded and ready to use.

It’s a real tip that I give you here, no affiliated links or hidden publicity.
