Powerex Maha MH-C801D Review

Aaron uses AA and AAA batteries a lot for his wireless microphones, camera flashes, flashlights, and field charging his equipment. Aaron tried several chargers before he found one that works quite well – the Powerex Maha MH-C801D charger. It charges 8 individual batteries. No pairs needed. It has several other modes like refresh and soft charge. When you need to charge lots of AA and AAA batteries, this might be a winner for you.

Sony RX100 VA Review

The Sony RX100 VA is one of the best portable pocket cameras on the market. It’s great for Vlogging and adventure filming, too. Aaron took it on his expedition to Antarctica and filmed his entire documentary for 3 months with this camera. The camera shoots in 1080p and does amazingly well for a small camera. The flip screen is a nice addition. Aaron has filmed several shows with it and used the camera on multiple continents and countries with this camera. People rave about it. Aaron does an unboxing and talks about the overview of the camera in this video and why he chose it over the RX100 VI for his purposes.

Aaron also talks about his tricks of how he uses 2-device recording to get GREAT AUDIO while using the RX100.

It claims to be 16ft/5m depth capable, waterproof, able to handle drops from up to 4.9 feet, can handle saltwater, and it has a built-in LED illuminator.

If you want the ultimate expedition air mattress, the Exped DownMat is what you have to get. Aaron used this mat on his Antarctic and Arctic expeditions. Regular air mattresses “suck” the heat out of your body at night. This air mattress has down inside of it to prevent heat loss. It’s rated to -34 deg. Below that, Aaron adds the Thermarest Z-Mat to eliminate cold conduction through the nylon at extreme temperatures. Aaron talks about the uses.
