isnt there a way to figure out how approximately much life you can get out of an external battery based on taking the maH of your external battery and the voltage of your device??? I cant seem to find it. I know it exists. is it simply dividing the two #'s?

Yes.  Divide the mAh of the battery by the mA draw of your device.  I'm pretty sure the UA5 draws 450mA

Volts of the battery need to match the Volts of the device - 12v device needs 12v battery.

To figure out what you need, you need to find out the "draw" of your device, or how many amps it uses.  If your device has a draw of 100amps, a 100amp/hour battery will power it at full voltage for 1hour. 

In a typical case, the Tascam HD-P2 has a "Power Consumption" of 6W (watts).  6W = 12V x ___Amps, or 0.5Amps, or 500mA. 

A battery pack like this one:  http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=4011  will power the HD-P2 for 14hours (7000mAh/500mA = 14h).

What are you trying to power???
