Hope Jon is doing the best he can. He's one of the people that makes TS.com fun and interesting for me. His absence is notable and a quick google search revealed what I assume must be the reason. My sincerest condolences and hope we see him around here again soon.

I asked Ted to build a custom cable 4.0mm x 1.7mm (to power the IPA) to 4.75mm x 1.7mm (plugged into my 12V external battery - Fotodiox Turbopack 9000 Power Pack).

This external battery successfully powered up my IPA, which supported my KCY > Neumann AK40 caps (KCY cables built by Nick).

I've used this set up nicely for a few recordings over the last few months.

Perhaps this would work: https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Speed-4-0mm-1-7mm-Power/dp/B00NQCMRJ6

I ordered one, and will report back when it arrives. I wonder why Jon hasn't commented here- I've seen him here much less often as of late.

This cable appears to not to work, as least not consistently. The light reads orange (i.e. low battery). It seems to work fine at first, but then cuts in and out. It's too bad, because it's a lovely small solution for running a KCY into channels 5&6 on the mixpre6. If only I could find a way not to burn a disposable a23 every show and powe off of the same usb-c battery as the deck.

Any thoughts on a small 12v battery? Perhaps this:https://www.amazon.com/Rechageable-Lithium-Ion-Battery-Pack-3500/dp/B007RQW5WG/ref=pd_sim_421_3?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=SJ1AAH1AY9C2QQERMNC3&th=1

Here's my set up, as per my previous post.  The battery lasts several recordings.

I had messaged Jon about a 5V > 12V USB-A to 1.7mm adapter cable last month, and he mentioned to me that it is still under development, but expected to be available by the end of the year.

The IPA runs on a A23 battery.  Naiant says for 20hrs but I never used one for more than 3.  Have one of the cables guys make a chopped XLR>stereo mini cable and that makes it less fussy.  The IPA is available now and less expensive than the tinybox was when it was available.

I would be nice to know how long the A23 would last using the different mics out there--maybe some of the owners could do the test.

The Naiant website states that the battery life with an A23 is down to ~5 hours with a 60v stereo circuit like with a KCY.

I like my IPA as well, sounds great, etc. But I'd rather not have to throw a battery into a landfill every time I tape a show.
