Pettersson D500x Extended Battery Pack

Product Description

For projects which call for D500 deployments lasting ~12-18 days between servicing, we developed an external battery pack using disposable "D" cell batteries. 

Yes you can use rechargeable D cells, but they simply don't last as long.

Yes you can use a 20 aHr sealed lead acid battery that will run a D500 over a month. Even hook up a solar charger and forget about it. Storing and maintaining a garage full of SLA batteries is harder than it sounds, and inevitably some of those batteries just don't last more than a season.

The "D" cells provide 13,000 mAh, while standard "C" cells that typically run the D500 internally provide 6000 mHh capacity. In theory, our "D" cell battery pack will provide more than twice the run time you are used to seeing on your D500x, on paper at least; real world results vary. 

The connector mates securely with a locking screw to all D500x built/purchased from 2013 to the present, and all Special Edition D500x.

As a side note, we don't recommend leaving -any- bat acoustic monitor unattended more than 2 weeks, so this battery capacity hits the sweet spot for regular service intervals.
