I own two Tascam DR680 (which I paired with a Sound Devices 552, although these days I use a Zoom F4 instead, a better and lighter package!).

Personally I powered my DR680 recorders with this:

Works fantastic! One of these can usually power my recorder for a whole day's shoot. And is very cheap, you can easily have a 2nd at hand as a  back up just in case.

Plus I really like the lights on the side of it, which let you know how much charge is left in it.

This Maxoak 50,000mha 185wh ran my DR680 for three plus days of Lockn' last year...with no phantom power on all line inputs.

It ran my Aeta 4MinX Two days with four phantom powered pre's engages
