Pettersson D500x Extended Battery Pack

Product Description

For projects which call for D500 deployments lasting ~12-20 days between servicing, we developed an external battery pack capable of using either disposable alkaline or rechargeable "D" cell batteries. This battery pack fits completely protected inside the Grab and Go storage/deployment box along with the D500x and 25' cable.

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

Most alkaline "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 2.5x the run time you are used to seeing on your D500x, on paper at least; real world results vary. 

This battery pack accepts 6-D cell batteries. Alkaline batteries are 1.5v and will produce 9 volts, which is safe to operate in all D500x. If 1.2v rechargeable batteries are used, 7.2v will be produced. This is ideal so that enough voltage is produced to operate the D500x in cooler weather with the lower voltage. Either voltage is perfectly safe to operate a D500x and does not void warranty.

We at BCM have conducted acoustic monitoring surveys since 2001. We have used rechargeable batteries, rechargeable lead-acid batteries, solar panels, and variations. Our recommendation for a medium-length (~15 day) deployment between servicing is to use disposable alkaline batteries which have proven to be the most reliable and readily available power solution. 

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.
