Updated Battery technology by RWA

Recommended Posts

and the hype are correct, the LiFePO4 (aka Lithium Nanophosphate) batteries could be quite revolutionary for audio gear. In the past, internal resistance has been the downside of battery supplies, but the LiFePO4 batteries feature very, very low internal resistance. This means that their output impedance is very low; they can provide lots of instantaneous current. Previously battery supplies have been very quiet, but often lacked dynamics, unless massively paralleled and connected to large banks of capacitors-with the LiFePO4s this complexity may not be necessary at all.

I am going to experiment with battery power for my new diy DAC kit (just the DAC section, class A discrete output stage will have an AC based shunt regulated supply) and see how it goes.
