I have two packs of Hawk Woods NP50. Bought new ones, new charger and so on and
so on.
Have few Fujitsu/Eneloop NiMH as internal when im not using ext bat.
Switched all combinations, all the batteries used to work great. This wasn't the
first time i made recording session using those bat. I doubt they all went bad
in 15mins time. Decoupling cap failure tho..  

Thank you for your input. I really appreciate it.
