I ve been thinking of tearing apart one of my sr2 onboard batteries and glueing on a PAG plate so I can use my normal collection of batteries. Anyone see any problems with that? Can anyone sell me an old battery with dead nicads?

If you blast 14.4v into your SR you will fry it. Better to Velcro some inexpenive NP1 batteries to the side of the mag.

I really appreciate the quick response Mitch and thats what I sort of suspected. Then I thought.... well I have an sr2 on my steadicam rig all the time (powered from the sled in low mode) and surely that can hit 16 odd volts....... Will I really fry it?

It depends on the condition of the individual components on your elecronics board the your particular camera. But in theory this is too much juice. Doesn't mean that people don't do it every day, but that's the spec.
