Thanks Nola,

Apart from the price, is there any difference between the McAlly and the Kensington. I´m asking cause i´m in Spain and is much easier for me to get the kensington one.

Thanks in advance.

Best.

Taking the price out of it, I think the McAlly and the Kesington are about the same.

I agree. It the McAlly works like a charm. I can tape all night with the back light on bright and contrast on 10 and have never come close to draining the thing.

I finally broke down and picked up two mcally's from newegg for festival season.  I haven't used them on the MT II yet, but I have on a phone & iPod, and I'm impressed with them so far.

Can a standard white Apple iPod AC wall wart with the USB output be used to charge the McAlly in lieu of my PC USB port?  I don't know why it couldn't, but thought I should double check with the brain trust...

Most likely. I use the wall wart that came with the MT, works like a charm ...

Great news on the Macally, I just purchased mine today for my MT1. Hopefully Newegg can deliver Thursday afternoon, taping Friday night and leaving early Friday.

Hopefully, this is not a dupe thread.

I just wanted to show a pic of the external power I purchased at walmart for my MT II (~$9).  It is just a 4 AA sled with USB connection and an on/off switch.

I haven't used it in the field yet, but it seems okay in quick tests at home.  The MT II shows that it is being charged when the battery is plugged in.

The retractable cable that came with it only powers the MT II.  I cannot use it to transfer a file via USB.

EDIT:  ...and that USB cable that came with it fits very nicely next to the S/PDIF I bought from kindcables.com

This thing croaked.  Not while taping, but while charging a phone.  Don't buy one.

Do you guys think that you could power an MT2 out of the USB and a v3 out of the socket output on this at the same time?  Any idea of runtime that you'd get doing this with phantom power on?
