Thanks for this great resource Ted!

I'm making up a battery supply power cable for the DR-680mkII (I've yet to use the mkII version of the 680 without AC power) and noticed the voltage note in this list:

Quote
Tascam DR-680 / 8-13v / Size M, 5.50mm OD × 2.10mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-)
Tascam DR-680mkII / 12v / Size C, OD 4.75mm x ID 1.7mm Center Pin (+) Ring (-)

I've always powered my MK1 with 9V DVD batteries.  Will those not work with the MKII? Does it require the full 12V? Any one run the MKII successfully on 9V?

I should probably ask in the team 680 thread.  I'll report back here once I find out.
Ted, I am sending a PM regarding our DR-680 power cords.
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

is what the threadstart says.

Does anyone know what the voltage limits actually are?
The entry for the original 680 says 8-13 V.
And I'm worried that my homebuilt power pack might harm my 680mkII.

Does anyone know for sure?

One is allowed to use 8*1.8V lithium batteries, which makes for 14.4V (actually closer to 15V for a set of brand new lithium batteries (like the Energizer AA cells).

So is it reasonable/safe to assume that a battery pack that could supply a maximum of 12.9V will not damage  a Tascam DR680mkII?
