Neither of those provide 2.4 amps, only 2.0 amps.  Is that going to be a problem???  If not, that's a damn good deal!!!

T


2 amps is more then enough for the jb3
have you checked radio shack?
They had a couple of different ones I thought.
Wallyworld has/had a 2.0 amp one that I use and it works well.

I am not sure if that will be a problem or not. I am mainly use it for charging my JB3, but I haven't used it with this battery system. I use the 4.5V setting and haven't had a problem yet.

w/ a 5v LDO 1.5a regulator i can record and charge batteries reliably via a 7.2v battery system.  Run time of the 7.2v in decreased but not significantly

I looked at Momule's steup and looks like he uses the same Powerline Car Adapter that I use. Maybe he can reply if isn't, but I think it is. Just wanted to point that out.

yup Im using the powerline (model 0900-21) I glued it stuck at 4.5v so it could not switch voltage on me while it was in the bag.
I left the cig adapter on it so I can use it to charge the internal batts either off the SLA or in the car on the way to the next show , or sometimes just to top off the internals at a fest so they dont drain the SLA trying to charge them..

I have never had a problem with it at all . It cost me about $16 at wallyworld. but can be found on ebay for a bit less sometimes.

I run it in the bag and just pull out however much cable I need to reach the Jb3 depending on the set up that night.. it and 12v7Ah fit nice in the front pocket of my bag . I normally only run one of the 12v5Ah for most shows , just cause I dont need the extra juice for anything but fest's

edited: to say the "stash" pocket in the powerline adaptor has been very handy a couple times. ;)

It really aint that bad Ray. the multimeter will cost more than anything

I dont know if ya can still find the ones at walmart . I dont see it on the web site But they should still have them in the store.

 I used the powerline (model 0900-21)
or something like the following would work aswell (as the Jb3 needs a bit over 1200 Mah)
http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&category%5Fname=CTLG%5F009%5F001%5F002%5F004&product%5Fid=273%2D1818

then I bought this (and cut off the clips)
http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&category%5Fname=CTLG%5F009%5F001%5F002%5F006&product%5Fid=270%2D1527

and put on Crimp-On Quick-Disconnects that slide onto the post's of the SLA battery..
http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&category%5Fname=CTLG%5F011%5F003%5F004%5F000&product%5Fid=64%2D4039

make sure the adapta plug end it set to Center (tip) + (positive),  and your good to go.. total time about an hour ..

edit to say :
this may work , It dont give a whole lot of spec's on it though so it would be a $7 gamble

Finished the festival battery this past weekend.  Big Ray, yours is in the mail today at lunch, I will PM you here in a sec to verify info.

Here is the finished product, minus a carrying case, which I'm still hunting...

I got the battery on EBAY, $20 delivered, but Rat Shack has them on sale right now for $20.  4pin XLRs from MarkerTek, wire from Lowe's and the Car Adpater from Creative.  That was the most expensive part - $40.  I couldn't find one ont he site yesterday, not could I find batteries or remotes for the JB3.

Anyways, total cost, with the $40 adapter rather than the $15 WallyWorld model was $90:

Battery = 20
adapter = 40
XLRs = 10
etc. = 5
Charger = 15

Maybe I should have bought an Eco-Charge, but whatever...  It was fun making...

Here is all the stuff minus the charger:

Thanks, +T for the props!!!

Actually, I made one at the same time for Big Ray and used a WallyWorld addapter for that one...  Tell you wot, that Wally adapter is kinda cheapie.

And I'm afraid the voltage switch will get accidentally switched at some point frying my JB3...

Think $40 for an adapter is expensive???  Remotes are running for $50-$70 on Ebay...
