Don't leave your A23 in the IPA between shows, definitely has a significant draw. Luckily I saw the red light with a few minutes to showtime, had to run out to car to switch.  :facepalm:  I'd left it in for about a month between shows, it only had 2-3 hours on it, I usually do two shows on one A23.

Marc, you should do a test for us to see who long those batteries will last  ;D  Last summer I ran them for 3hr shows and didn't use them past that.  Unfortunately, I can't use the batteries in anything else, or find rechargeable if there are any.

I've only been brave enough to go to 6.5 hours or so. Should do a test.

Not that I'm aware of. 3.99 a two pack at Home Depot. I'll live with a buck a show.

I will have a 5V-->12V USB-A to 1.7mm adaptor cable ready in January, that will enable use of any USB battery.

Any update on this ? Loving my IPA thus far two shows in. With four more Ina variety of venues to come in the next 3 weeks

From www.naiant.com:

The IPA has a flexible power supply scheme that can support:
•+9V to +52V phantom power
•an internal A23 battery (battery not included)
•external battery or AC adaptor via DC power port (+5V to +15V; +12V recommended)

I got about 10 hours on a fresh A23 over the weekend.  Did about 9 hours of recording on Friday with it.  Should have swapped in new batteries at the start of recording on Saturday but spaced it. 
Got about another hour out of it before I notice that one of the channels wasn't getting a signal since the battery died.

Does anyone know if there is a way to build one of these that only acts as the bodies to my mics (and possibly provide phantom power)?

I'd like to use a single box option to place between my caps (Beyer CK930) and my MP6, but still use the preamps in the MP6.

Would an IPA with 0db gain do this?

EDIT: Question answered from Jon via email. Sharing for everyone's enjoyment.

Yes, you'd need the TB6M input IPA with a Y cable for a pair of CK930s. 
Another option if you are feeding the Mixpre would be a pair of PFAs,
those would run on the Mixpre's phantom power.

Any advice on how the IPA could support a pair of Neumann KM140s?

It doesn't appear that Jon has a Neumann option. Wish he did though.

for a neumann option.....

Nick makes neumann cables, he can make you a KCY cable, i have one he made, it is perfect, and you can then get an IPA that has 50db instead of 60v polarization voltage, which is what neumanns use, and you can also have him invert the polarity in that when i run the neumanns on the KCY the polarity is flipped on both mics.  this only comes into play when you are running a multi mic mix and the neumanns will be out of phase from the other mics

so yah, drop nick a line, the work he did on my cables was amazing

Thanks, Dan!  I had messaged Nick a while back and he is building me a custom KCY cable.  I just messaged Jon to see if he can make those modifications on the IPA.  I appreciate your advice!
