I was looking at the battery life of the DR680 and it appears that I would need 
to get an external power supply (Bixnet BP160) if I wanted to run the recording 
all night since the DR680 only has a 4 hour battery life.

This made me wonder that perhaps I should just get the Olympus LS-100 since it 
has a 12 hour battery life.  I was only planning on recording 2 channels 

Aside from the DR680 having 2dbu better input noise, are there other factors 
that make the DR680 more superior then the LS-100?
