Zaxcom QRX100 - battery Power

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hope you're all well. Has anyone had any luck powering a Zaxcom QRX100 from batteries? I made a battery cable - 2x9v batteries termination in the QRX DC plug. Works for about 20 minutes then doesn't work. I can't work out if the power is being drained from the 9Vs too quickly, or if it's a different problem. Would appreciate any insight - or product links that I could buy to make this work.

Many thanks

The QRX100 needs 12V at about 300ma. 9V can not do that for you. Use any 12V nominal battery that can supply enough current.

Two 9v. batteries in series could power it but their combined voltage may be a bit too high to be within safety margins.

If they're connected in parallel, it'll perform just as you described.

A choice that'll work fine is an 8 AA holder with the appropriate power plug.
