Portable Battery to Power Elektron


#251

Did you get the 13 or the 20? Have you tried running the DT at the same time as something hooked up to a USB port (like a speaker) and, if so, how did that affect things (if at all)?

The Omnicharge looks badass but I’m still trying to find a way to get one to Australia. Hoping it’s worth the effort.

3 prong (AC) output battery packs seem to be more available this year in the USA…

Here are a few I’ve come across that may (or may not?) be viable 6V solutions (OT/MM/MD), used in conjunction with included Elektron 6V DC power supplies, of course.

I managed to purchase a Vinsic powerbank wich I assumed would work, but there’s no way to change the DC output from 19v to 12v. Would I fry the Digitakt if I’d try to run it on 19v, or would it only pull the needed power?
I also purchased a Sandberg Powerbank that works like a charm.

Le bump

Dont run it of 19V.

You run the risk of damaging the unit.


#257

Yeah, as I thought. Just wanted to confirm my assumption :wink: Thanks for the reply!


#258

Bumpage, hows everyone powering their Ot mobiley?


#259

hey PaPYKoG,

Did you actually tried this with the octatrack already?


#260

Yes I was using it on the bus a few days ago! works great, switched it to 9v.


#261

I am having a 5hr flight and just ordered this, should be here today, just in time.

Do you know if it’s safe to use it at 9V?


#262

Im french as well, for some reason when I saw the pic I knew it was in France. Weird!


#263

Yes it is.


#264

Have you tried any of these out? Im looking at the cylindrical Anker one


#265

I’m curious how you are getting along with this battery and the OT? Noticing any funny behavior from the extra voltage?


#266

You can change the voltage from 9V/12V/19V/20V. I have not noticed any problems or weird behavior. In fact I made a song on the bus from Edinburgh to Glasgow yesterday with the Analog Rytm MK1, last week I used the Octatrack MK1 and it was as simple as changing the voltage on the battery.


#267

Good stuff, as long as folks set voltage correctly before pluggin in elektron :wink:

Did it come with correct dc power plugs?


#268

Well i just snagged a used Tekkeon MP3450 on ebay. Heres to hoping it works great! Im hoping by the time it no longer functions there will be a better solution.


#269

@AdamJay i confirm Ravpower 27000mAh, it work very nicely with OT MK2, A4 MK2 and will with the AR MK2… i talked about this one before… what’s nice is the Elektron PSU do its job for the electrical transformation as we plug it with the normal electric plug that’s what i like about this powerbank it can charged devices but when hold the power button it switch and delivers continuous power. and it comes with a cool carry case :stuck_out_tongue:

You do get a quiet hum through the audio though. I do.
