    The CGO Steady grip needs to have a LIPO Battery or something, It kills batteries too fast. Any ideas ?

    it's fast because the gimbal and camera requires 12v nominal to run, but can run as low as 9v.

    with electronics, lower voltage means more current draw, the Double A batteries doesnt have much current.

    that's why they get hotter and drain faster.

    the grip was created half arse.
