I am not sure that mine has the AUTO function or not.
But after I power it on plugged into my deck (off) I can easily adjust the power to 12v then power up the deck.
hopefully that will be the trick.
fingers crossed

Looks like you have the same model as mine MP3450 R2.  It doesn't have auto voltage but will lock the selected voltage once you power on the device you are powering with it.  According to Tekkeon website the MP3750 is the model with automatic voltage selection...

"MP3750 R2
myPower ALL Plus MP3750 quickly and easily powers and/or charges laptops and other devices that require input power between 10V and 19V. This universal rechargeable battery features automatic voltage detection with an option for manual voltage selection to double the life of your laptop battery and other portable devices. A bonus USB output port enables you to simultaneously charge other small portable devices, like cell phones, iPods and more."

People have specifically narrowed the problem with the 680 decks to the auto function of the Tekkeon and you're STILL gonna plug a Tekkeon into it ?!?    You're crazy!

potentially
I could Return the tekkeon but I would still be in need for a 12v Li-Ion battery.
I can't imagine why if I am sure it's running at ON:Y 12v it would be an issue?
But what do I know

It's akin to playing with a loaded gun. Just because the safety is on doesn't mean you should point it at someone.

Good luck with the Tekkeon; I just think there are far too many options at an equivalent price point with zero potential of supplying more than 12v.

I use a Tekkeon set at 12V with my DR-680 and haven't had any issues.  My Tekkeon doesn't have the auto function.  I simply make sure I have it selected to 12V before powering up the DR-680.

This is kinda where I'm at on this.  However, if you're careful and diligent, then there's nothing to worry about. 

That said, I know how I operate my gear.  After some period of time, I get used to everything and maybe after time has passed, somewhat complacent or forgetful about checking battery setting if that's important.  I know me (and Murphy's Law is constantly looking to screw me over) and at some point I'd forget to check that the Tekkeon is set to 12V and BAM, now I have an inoperable DR-680.  Since that's one of the 'mission critical' pieces of gear and alot more costly than a new battery, I personally know with my habits, that's not a chance I'd be willing to take.  Just me though.

Since that's one of the 'mission critical' pieces of gear ...

For some, this is the biggest factor. Things can be repaired, but when you miss that special show because your recorder is flashing "Sys Rom Error," well...

We were lucky to have an M10 on hand when this happened.

NOLAfishwater pointed out this battery in a recent power thread for SD788.  The battery looks good; 153 Watt/Hr or 42500 mAh at (4.75A max), voltage outputs are 5V on USB and switchable output port for 12V or 19V.

I came across this one recently on eBay but it appears to be much lower capacity than the battery NOLAfishwater found.  What's nice is that it has the option of running at several different voltages, including 9v for an R-44, MixPre, etc. > http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Extrernal-Battery-18000mAh-iPhone-3GS-PSP-NDSL-DPF-Portable-DVDs-/220891466379?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item336e284a8b

You got to be careful with CHEAP multi-voltage batteries as they will more than likely have a very cheap DC-DC Converter design and will more than likely be noisy. 

Not saying it won't work but be careful - these cheap straight from China batteries are not going to be up to the same standards (no chance of UL or CE certified, no or little quality control, etc) as an established US seller such as Tekkeon or Battery Geek battery.

Exactly... and how is one battery different from another? What I mean is with out "US" field testing them, how do we know if any other multi voltage battery will not the same issues?
Personally I'd like to find a single voltage 12v Li-Ion  similar to the 9v dvd batteries. Who knows though what if any issues may arise I did find these for powering 12v led strings...

however the "15 hour" is still expensive, and how would one know if it would be any better  - or - worse then the tekkeon?

input?
