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.
