Yes, the Marantz PMD671 does default to batteries if the mains power is
interrupted. But I found the Marantz battery very unreliable and so cannot
tell you exactly how long it's battery life is. I found it much better to
use a set of 8 NiMH batteries -- these would quite reliably last for 5
hours, although the manual says that they should last 7 hours. Also they
charge in an hour, if you buy the right charger.
