    so first off i'm really knew to this m5 life so do excuse my ignorance. so i've been attempting to set up a time lapse with my m5, tripod, canon 5d mark iii and an elysia visuals romper pro and it seems like every time i have it set for a few hrs the m5 battery always dies first. so i guess my questions are

    1. whats the battery length suppose to be?
    2. is there an alternative constant battery option?
    3. especially for long time lapses

    please advise

    Algerson some folks use an RC LiPo 4s battery with an appropriate power connector. Or they make a Y adapter so that they can connect two M5 batteries. Another option is to use the larger M10 battery ( 2.1ah vs 1.3 ah for the M5). Do a search through the forums.
