Thanks. I also took your tip on those $15 batteries and bought 3 of them.  :cheers:

I wonder if the cable I have (9V DVD battery cable made by Ted) will work with the Talentcell?

Yes

The Talentcell 12v does a nice job and the 12v/9v version can can run the pre + your recorder or ADC.

Would you be referring to this one:

^ I'm prettt sure the 9V DVD cable tip is a smaller diameter than the 12V connection for the Talentcell. I recently had the latter made from Ted and owned a 9V cable some years back.

Got the battery today. Ordered a cable from Ted. So will the 9V out power my 6V V2 properly? I don’t think that question was answered. How long will this battery power just a V2?

Thanks.

So finally got around to testing this battery. It kicks ass. Ran it for 10 hours yesterday and only dropped one bar. It’s smaller than 2 9v DVD batteries taped together. Gonna run it some more today. I used the 9V output. Also going to try the USB out into my Mix Pre 6. Not sure if it will work properly. I have one USB A to C cable somewhere.

The maxoak $99 deal is up again on amazon.

However, if all you need to do is power your V2, the talentcell battery linked below will more than do the trick at a fraction of the price.

There is a nice mod to remove the switch and add a locking power output too ---> http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=184489.msg2248074#msg2248074 .

^ I should really look into that mod. It's just a matter of time before I accidentally flip the power switch mid-show. Gaffin' it down until then.

Maxoak looks good, however I just ordered a second Tallentcell a few days ago.  It hits all these bullet points for me:

>12VDC, 9VDC, and 5VDC (USB) outputs, all usable simultaneously. 
>Independent dedicated voltage outputs (not switchable or auto-sensing).
>Actual on/off switch (not a momentary switch, typical of auto-shut off function batteries which shut down if power-draw becomes insufficient to keep it on)
>AC or 12VDC re-charging
>Runs my gear all day with power to spare
>Good power meter
>The functions I want, yet simple and straightforward.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016BJCRUO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Can choose various smaller capacities on that Amazon page to suit your needs.  There are two standard case sizes into which they squeeze their different capacity offerings.  The smaller case versions are half as thick as this one, which may fit better in the bag for some folks.  I like this size for maximum capacity in a reasonable size and cost, and I rarely run it down more than about 1/4 down recording 6 channels into a DR680MK2 with phantom powering on all channels.

I just bought a second one so that I can (probably) go an entire 3 day festival while primitive camping without having to recharge.

That mod is pretty involved. I wouldn’t want to try it. I’d rather do the plastic guard over the toggle switch that gets mentioned.
