Look here for the first of a few Korg MR-1 threads
http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,80529.0.html


Myself and other Korg users have this external battery pack. Powers the MR-1 for 8-9 hours

nice little battery!
I used a power runner pr2e with excellent results.
LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

this thing?: http://laptopsforless.stores.yahoo.net/pr2powrunmod.html

Edit: There's no 5v switch. Do you run it at 4.5 or 6? How long does it last?

When doing a tech review on MR-1 http://www.sonicstudios.com/mr-1revw.htm#power I noted the external input power is 5 volts, just like Microtrack deck, but at over 2-times power. 

So I tried the regulated sleds meant for Microtrack, but with exact MR-1 power plug instead of MT miniUSB.  Found these sleds also work flawlessly to handle the MR-1 for up to 25 hours continuous running time.  Microtrack models shown, and same $ for MR-1 versions on chart at: www.sonicstudios.com/batsys98.htm#chrt

While I failed to test this on loaned MR-1, to maybe get 2+ hours suggest really cheap Energizer 'Energi-to-Go' (USB/5-volt versions) found to pack out a lot of 5 volt power on regular alkaline AA only if left connected and working continuously until exhausted. 

At that point you're seamlessly back running on the internal MR-1 battery until loading another 2 AA into the Energizer for again maybe another couple of hours.
