Zoom F6 Battery Usage

4 x Duracell Plus running a stereo mic with 48v phantom power and just the 2 channels live.  No headphones plugged in.

 

I get just over 2 hours of recording before the battery power goes so low it cause problems.  But it is claimed of up to 16.5 hours operation by some.  Or is that only with 'L' batteries?

The specs list the battery life for Alkaline AA is only 30 minutes or so with everything turned on. 7.5 hours with all phantom, time code, and outputs off. So yeah, with two phantom channels turned on, 2+ hours is on par.  My F8n with an Inspired Energy smart battery, on the other hand, can go all day.
