Hi Clint,

so far I haven't had any problems at all and i can't see that you'd  
have problems. a number of people over at tapers section are running  
BG packs without issue.

I left the HDP2 record over night with a pair of AT3032's hooked up  
and phantom power on, gain at 9.5 and recording stereo 16bit/44.1kHz.  
I also had a pair of HD280 headphones plugged in and set at half  
volume - which is where I normally run them. Display backlight was  
off. I'd had the recorder switched on but not recording for an hour  
prior to running the record test. This morning when I checked the  
record time was 11 hours 35 min, and the battery was putting out  
round about 11.20-11.34 volts. The power level meter on the battery  
was showing 3/4 full(which I suspect is wildly optimistic). I've  
since spent about 20 minutes recording pink noise.  I've deleted the  
existing recordings and will see how much longer i get before shut down.

It might also be worth looking at something like this:
the locking connectors would definitely make the power cabling with 2  
devices quite secure.

The other alternative would be to wire up a Y cable with one  
connector on the battery end and connectors for the 302 and MR1000 on  
the other.
Rob has details of the correct connector and so wiring instructions  
on his website:
