Just got my MP-2 back from Jerry after again pulling out a wire replacing a 9v battery. What are others currently using for 9v-18v external power for their Aerco? I've got a couple of dvd batteries I could use w/RatShack connectors but they are old and I'd like to find something newer that might also power my R44. Thanks for everyone's help.

I know that you’re looking for a different suggestion..  but I always used the 9v DVD style batteries when I ran an Aerco. Worked great.
The only multi voltage batteries that I have are Tekkeon, and I know that those are considered “old”  and that there are much better multi voltage batteries these days.
Not much help, but I know that Aerco rocks!!
.....got a blank space where my mind should be.....

I don't run an Aerco, but love the Tallentcell batteries as modern replacement for DVD batteries. Most provide 12VDC via a dedicated coaxial port, in addition to a 5VDC USB-A port. Some provide a 9VDC port as well. Has built-in meter like DVD batts and a physical on/off rocker switch unlike DVD batts

Hey, boa.  Looks like you need some kind of junction box that will feed both the Aerco and the R4.

That said, I just got my Aerco back from Jerry too.  I had him give it a checkup.  I won't be running internal bats anymore.  The Lithium mod didn't work out ,because of the scarcity of those RC batteries.  An evolution if you will.

Anyhoot, I'll be using the smaller Talent cell or a DVD battery like you're using, going forward......

I purchased another R-44 from achalsey and it came with a Talentcell battery. He had already figured out what I was asking for. The Talentcell works great for powering both the R-44 and the Aerco MP-2. For reference,  on the battery the 12v out is a DC 5521 (which is an M-Tip) and the 9v out is DC 5525 (which is an N-Tip).  The R44 and Aerco are both M-tip inputs. First show in less than a month!
