My 680 is still on backorder so I don't have it yet to test it out, but I'm planning on using this battery with it:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330391162265

I ordered mine on 4/30, and it arrived on 5/13.  <Two weeks from China, including order processing time is pretty good.  $35 shipped for a 6500mAh 12v li-ion battery is a great deal I think.  And man is it small and light!  Compared to a 12v 6 Amp-hr SLA battery, hoo boy what a change from the old days of lead!

I have no idea if the output connector will fit the 680, but I imagine I'll have to change it out.  But so far this battery looks like it could be a winner.

Hey Todd, how is that chinese/hooboy Lithium battery turning out? Any problems charging it fully (or blowing it up!)? What are it's dimensions, BTW? Hope you had good luck with it, you can't beat the price.

cheers!
Dave

Just a heads up that the latest 9V DVD batteries I bought a couple years back included the a cable and the correct RA adaptor for the DR680, so no need for me to build a custom one.  Right on.

I bought one of these for my DR680, but didn't get to try it because it arrived DOA.  Afterwards, I decided to go with one of the 5v/9v/12v ones available on ebay and have been happy with it. The included cable, while short, has a connector that fits the dr-680.

for what its worth, when I was figuring out how to power my expanding 8-channel rig, I checked the voltage ranges of my gear and noticed that they all have 12V in common.
Conveniently I already had a 10-14-88 batterygeek that seems to runs my rig for ever :)
Originally I considered making a proper DIN rail for power distribution contained in a little box, but to save on size and weight I instead made a breakout cable that terminates in a standard little DC plug on the power input side.

I then took a quality little 5A 12V power supply, attached a DC socket to the output, and zip-tied it to a little high quality two-socket surge suppressor/notch filter.

This way the gear stays permanently plugged into the breakout cable and I can choose between plugging everything directly into the battery or into the little power supply/surge suppressor/notch filter when I'm using house power.

I know this topic is a little old, but I think this question is probably more relevant to this thread than a new one. Maybe?

The specs above from Tascam state 8V-13V for input. A lot of the simple Lithium-Ion battery packs (like the NP-1 style) are at 14.4V. Is anyone running the DR-680 off of a 14.4V Li-ion? Any ill side effects from the slightly-higher-than-rated voltage?

Thanks!

Just found this post that says you made your breakout cable.  :)
