No need to be so dismissive of this option.

Same here;
- Film sound with two 48v -- would like to have a solid 3hr option, and maybe more depending on $
- Recording guitar in the VW van at hte beach

The latter won't be very power hungry, using a guit headphone amp as a DI. Trying to just work out the best values in mAh per $ here. These anecdotal reports are super useful.
