What exactly are you using your new mixpre-3 for? I use mine for film sound, nature recording and music recording and, as I said previously, despite having external power options, I find these gathering dust and that 3 sets of 4 Eneloop Pro AAs are actually a very viable, compact and robust powering option: that's after a year and half of hard use/experience. No need to be so dismissive of this option.
