This one is a little more affordable!  The SD version looks more stream line.  You could use a Dtap battery with this for a more robust connection.  I've linked an example of that as well.  I also linked a Dtap cable.

Is anyone using the MX-Hirose sled? Looks pretty solid. Expensive though. Is there a battery with a more solid connection than a USB on the battery side that could be used with this sled? It would be nice to have solid connections on both ends of the power supply.

To power my MP 6 Ii, I created my own by adding a a Hirose connector on a spare 4AA sled and mounted a high efficiancy Traco DC/DC converter TSR3-24150 inside to feed the internal connectors.
Unfortunately a lot of my audio equipment is down in basement storage so I can't find any photo of it.

I would guess that's what you would find if one took a peek under SD's own Hirose sled.

Thanks guys. Right now I'm using one of the approved Ankers and a right angle usb-c cable (both ends). I run the mixpre end thru the front handle which helps quite a bit with stability and on the battery end I use a piece of gaffers tape. It works but always looking for a better solution. Not sure I want to spend $350, but it's what I'm looking for.  :hmmm:

I'm using a Max Oak K2 battery with a Hirose cable Ted built for me!  I have a Mixpre 10 II so it has a 8 AA sled.  I've never run into problems with power.  I do prefer the Hirose over the usbc on my old Mixpre 6.
