Zoom F3 Battery
After looking for information about battery duration with Zoom F3 I've decided to do some tests myself to understand for how long I can leave it hanged to a tree with a couple of Clippy EM272. This is the setup and the results, hope that someone else could benefit:
- Microphones: Clippy EM272 with phantom power enabled (+48V)
- File format: WAV 32b/96kHz
I've measured the maximum duration leaving the Zoom recording until it powers off itself due to low battery power, then copying the files from the micro-sd card and pasting in Reaper, one after another, and checking the duration. This is because I plan to leave it to itself for as long as possible, hoping to not loose too much recording when the Zoom shuts off.
