how long does a lisa last on with a fully charged set of 9 volts
post #18 of 229
It is a one to one charge time so if it will run for 15 hours off of the batteries it will take that long to recharge it.

lisa III standard will run for 8-10hrs off a single full charge and yes jamato is right it takes 1hr to charge enough to run for 1hr. the XP version will run for 50hrs

The LP power supply is excellent and can be left plugged in all the time until going totally mobile.

X2!! absolutely!! I love mine, anyone who is thinking of avoiding the purchase, but has a need for a good PSU anywhere in their system, should think twice. I have found many uses for my LLP; the fact that it can be adjusted to supply a regulated voltage at practically any value in its range is very, very handy. I have used it to power all sorts of things and charge almost anything.

Yes i carry mine around with me! I never use my RSA Hornet and rarely even use my Pico. Mainly Lisa baby for portable.
The Generation 2 to me sounds a touch warmer(tubeyer and less analytical) than the gen 1. I've had both and they have each been great SQ in their own right.

My charges don't go anything like 15 hrs Jamato8 you must have some good juju karma there

I get something like 6-8 hrs it seems. Took it fully charged on two trips, one seemed to last forever, the other only a couple of days, guess i listened a bit more but not over six hrs i don't think.

After you've heard what Lisa III is capable of with the Grado GS-1000 and Westone 3 IEMs, you'll know why I bring put this inside my Shaun Jackson laptop bag with my Macbook pro whenever I'm on the move.

I've got the XP version, which is even bigger, and that plus the Soniccaps 4.7uF.

My RSA predator has been really lonely ever since the Lisa III came.

yep only time my pico gets a look in is if i'm not bringing a bag with me at all. its the depths of summer here; so no chance of stuffing it (lisa->VCAP rig) in a jacket. thinking of getting rid of the pico soon even since my iphone has such a great HP out, I can deal with that plus W3 when I dont want to bring the lisa with me. I do still really like the sound of the pico, and its really cute, but I could always use another set of headphones or sell W3 and add money from the pico sale to get ES3X hmmm decisions, decisions

and yeah jamato 15hrs is unheard of for a standard version unless you have upgraded the batteries somehow. maybe it would get that with a set of non rechargables

Yes...

Yes, it depends if you have the first gen or second gen lisa, first gen came with 150s and second gen came with 250s installed.

Im going to get some Tysonic low discharge.

Is it possible to actually take the 2 x 9V batteries out and charge it on a Powerex charger (which takes a lot faster to charge)? I'm using the Lisa III XP, not very sure about the Lisa III std.

Also, will the brand/type of 9v batteries affect the sound of the Lisa III? Read somewhere amps like the RSA blackbird SR-71A sounds different with different batts.

I have the new version and it goes nowhere near 15hrs; more like 8

ummm the XP doesnt have 9v at all, it has a specially designed multi-cell battery pack and I would be careful trying to charge it in a charger that is not tuned specifically for the job.

I'm thinking of getting the Lisa III std for someone else, just wondering if I should get an external 9v charger for him as well or the LLP.

I already have the XP, seen the AA cells inside and I'm using the LLP to charge

The operative word here is "if". I was just giving an example that "if" it runs for 15 hours it will take 15 hours to charge. :^)
