R-09HR external power
« on: October 29, 2008, 11:36:34 PM »
Although 2 NiMh AA batteries run my deck for a long time, I ended up getting this power pack from Amazon, which has selectable voltage down to 3v.  Saw it here somewhere, but I can't remember where:


Went to one of the many convenient, local radio shack stores, and got two adapta-plug sockets, a package of butt connectors, some shrink-wrap tubing and adapta-plugs "N" and "B" to make this hack-job power cable:


Turns out I also had this old rat shack 4xAA NiMh charger which plugs into the wall to re-charge itself and also has selectable voltage from 9v to 3v:


Both battery packs run the R-09HR, probably for much, much longer than I'll ever need:

and


Total bill at rat shack was over $26 for all the parts, but that DIY feeling was, well, priceless...

Now you don't:   CA-14c  or DPA4061 > CA ST-9100 > R-09HR

Link to the portable power pack?  Here it is on Amazon, but I think I got mine for under $20, including shipping.
http://www.amazon.com/iConcepts-Digi-Power-Pack-PP99/dp/B0009EXVGC

Probably worth shopping around a bit for this thing.  I swear I read a thread on these boards talking about this battery, and when I bought it, it was around $14 plus shipping.  So I'm shocked to see it priced over $40.  Maybe it was on sale when I bought it.

D'oh!  I just realized that they're still $13.99 each via Amazon.  Just click the " ›  3 used & new available from $13.99" thingy

But don't count on the adapta-plug style tips that come with that battery to work with anything you have.  If they do, its a bonus, but they're not interchangeable with the rat shack adapta-plugs

From what I've read, it's probably advisable to keep a pair of AA's inside the R-09HR while running on external power.  If the external battery starts to fade, the deck will seamlessly switch to internal batteries (that's what I've read here, anyway, but I haven't tried this myself).  Unlike a JB3, however, the external battery won't charge the internal batteries.  The R-09HR doesn't have an internal, on-board charger

Thanks for the link.  This seems like a good solution to Multi Voltage Needs (3V, 4.5V, 5V, 6V, 6.5V, & 8.4V Settings). 

Found one for $9.99 also.

Wonder how long this would power a Korg MR-1? Might be a good battery pack for MR-1 users.

I have been too lazy to figure it out, but a VERY long time.  I'd say "Festival Long".

This is probably a dumb question, but whatever, I can't find the answer (no, not even in the manual):

What voltage does the R-09HR require from external DC power?
