Look here for the first of a few Korg MR-1 threads
http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,80529.0.html


Myself and other Korg users have this external battery pack. Powers the MR-1 for 8-9 hours

this thing?: http://laptopsforless.stores.yahoo.net/pr2powrunmod.html

Edit: There's no 5v switch. Do you run it at 4.5 or 6? How long does it last?

When doing a tech review on MR-1 http://www.sonicstudios.com/mr-1revw.htm#power I noted the external input power is 5 volts, just like Microtrack deck, but at over 2-times power. 

So I tried the regulated sleds meant for Microtrack, but with exact MR-1 power plug instead of MT miniUSB.  Found these sleds also work flawlessly to handle the MR-1 for up to 25 hours continuous running time.  Microtrack models shown, and same $ for MR-1 versions on chart at: www.sonicstudios.com/batsys98.htm#chrt

While I failed to test this on loaned MR-1, to maybe get 2+ hours suggest really cheap Energizer 'Energi-to-Go' (USB/5-volt versions) found to pack out a lot of 5 volt power on regular alkaline AA only if left connected and working continuously until exhausted. 

At that point you're seamlessly back running on the internal MR-1 battery until loading another 2 AA into the Energizer for again maybe another couple of hours.
