Talentcell YB 12011000 Lithium Battery Pack


Has anyone had experience powering 2 devices with this battery.

I'm planning to use the USB Output to power a mix pre and then use the 12v out to power a preamp

When plugged in everything powers up fine. Just wondering if I'm going to blow up within the hour

Phil Zone:
I have the bigger capacity version, but I use the 12v out for my recorder, the input (which outputs 12v) for my preamps and the USB for a video camera. Just did a festival 2 weeks ago and it worked great.

I'd say 2 devices should be fine. The website says that your model can drive 6 amps, so I'd think you'd be clear of that for sure.

Sounds good. Thanks

According to Delta I can fly with this thing as well. Clocking in at 122watt hrs.

Size Limits for Lithium Batteries:

Passengers are permitted to travel with lithium ion batteries that contain a maximum of 160-watt hours per battery.  Any lithium ion battery containing more than 160-watt hours is prohibited from carriage on all passenger aircraft. Lithium ion batteries installed in a personal electronic device can be transported as checked or carry-on baggage. Lithium ion batteries not installed in a device (spares) must be in carry-on baggage and no more than two (2) spares between 100 and 160-watt hours are allowed.

I haven't used that particular battery but I have 2 different Talentcell batts that do exactly as you describe just fine. I've been testing using USB 5V for a 661 and the 12V for a preamp and it's chugging along for hours.

Only word of caution is that as the capacity decreases the battery may struggle to keep up with the current draw for 2 devices. I had some static pops introduced on a few recordings that I traced back to when the battery was down to it's last 25% of capacity. Happened at a festival when I was taping all day.

Good to know. Thanks for heads up
