Recorders
Marantz PMD-620 / 5v / Size B, 4.00mm OD × 1.70mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-) / Normal Polarity

Per your indirect encouragement I have tested the 620 using a modified USB > DC "B tip" cable providing 5v from a rechargeable USB battery pack.

Ran 22 hours with no known issues... I did'nt really listen to the playback for more than a minute...

So for "fun" I decided to hook up my battery pack to the UA-5 (reverse polarity) and oddly enough it powered up and the phantom power light is on. Sadly I don't have a spare cable to power that and my recorder at the same time or else I would test it all out.

So what are the potential problems of running a 9v dc device with phantom power (known to run on 7.2v) on 5v?

Edit:
I see in your (tgakidis) profile that you have the same type of UA-5 that I'm running. No doubt you can test this in a more professional manner than myself :)

So where does one find these DC plugs?  I'm looking for a USB > Type B and am having no luck. 

Radio Shack doesn't have a direct USB > adapter so you have to buy the cable and each plug end separately and it ends up coming close to 40 bucks.  Thats ridiculous.   


Edit:  Never mind found it.  Wasn't putting in the right search terms.

For any of the USB > Type B guys theres 5 of these left.

That cable and this sled    http://www.batteryspace.com/batteryholderaax4withusbinterfaceconnectorandbeltcliponoffpowerswitch-rohscompliant.aspx
 
You have a nice external battery for the DR-2d or other 5v recorders.

I thought the stock m248 only had a plug for the charger not for external batteries - the battery configuration of the m248 is similar to the 148 in that is a number of 12v sla's run in series and parallel in order to power the op-amps and also provide 48V phantom - something like 4-6 of these 12v batteries.  The charging circuit is only used to charge the batteries and cannot be used to power the unit.

Doug did this to remove the need for DC-DC converters - is my understanding.

So to add external power you would need to have someone replace these batteries with a DC-DC converter circuit.

I'm wanting to repair my charger. It needs a new plug.

Nitpick typo police here: please change all instances of 'Scheops' to 'Schoeps'. Maybe another case of reversed polarity?  :-)
