Portable Battery to Power Elektron


#21

Correct, will not work with mk1


#22

I find great interest in this portable empowering device. I think i gonna have one soon. But i saw a question on another forum, and i would like to now if you have the answer…
How many times this device can be reload and full operating… ?
Have you any information delivered when bought ?


#23

GREAT! I need one as well.


#24

Thought I found a budget alternative to the Tekkeon, unfortunately it look like this one is one 5V USB or 12V+ DC


#25

I would really like to buy a Tekkeon. Anyone know where I can buy it in EU. Found it on a french site but its quit expensive, especially with shipping (im in sweden).
So if anyone found a good place to but one in Europe please let me know.

:slight_smile:

i am reviving this thread with my question:

how to power the AR ?

i am interested in products to buy in Germany … thanks for all help … also I want a stereo speaker which should also be powered to play in a park


#27

:slight_smile: i’ve been looking at a solution as well for a while now and the best thing i have found so far it could help is something like this (this is the cheapest one, but good to get an idea…)


#28

The tekkon battery work well with the AR, but not as long as for MD/MnM.

More over, you can plug USB supply speakers to the tekkon, in parallel.

hi Guga,

thanks for your answer… so is the Wechselrichter a thing that is actually powered by something else? or is it a battery? it also looks heavy :frowning:

hi twyce… thanks for your answer!

so you have been using the Tekkon battery … the amazon reviews vary a lot… some people are really dissatisfied with the quality, you seem to be happy…

I take from your answer, you have been using it with MM MD and AR ? … only with headphones or also with external speakers?

how long does it last you?

thanks for info :slight_smile:


#31

So, there’s only Tekkon battery that works with our elektrons ?

I would like something for A4, Octa or AR, but Tekkon is very expensive…

No alternative ?

I tested it with MD, MnM, A4 (but should be the same with AR). Only with headphone.

I use it around 7hours with MD, MnM, and 4 to 5hours with A4.

May be other model/trademark work with Elektron, but nobody find a lot of alternative. Why ? It is diffcult to find battery for 6V and 12V combined. The most battery are for smartphone/tablet market (5V) or computer market (15 -> 19V)

Yes it is very expensive. But for me it is worth the money ! Creativity moment in beautiful place, or feeling free to create whereever has not price.

yep, you’ll need to get yourself a car battery or something similar to supply the 12V needed by the wechselrichter to give you the 220V. i’ve been looking to get one of this because i need to power up speakers, a controller and the machines but i still haven’t had a chance to try things out. the thing itself is not heavy (luckily)


#35

hey guga … I am looking for an easy in the park solution, in a backpack … but it seems to be getting too expensive … if on the other hand we could meet in a park in berlin, that would be awesome! I can help you carry some of the gear :slight_smile:


#36

What kind of portable (auto alimented) speakers would you recommand for external music. Not for outdoor public gig but for nice restitution of our gear in outdoor with reasonable volume ?


#37

that’s why i started to look at alternatives…using a wechselrichter (not sure about the english translation :expressionless: ) one could simply plug the synths usgin their own power supply there should be enough power to connect a pair of speakers as well…having said that…i still need to take a decision about this, whether with a portable battery or not, it will cost money anyway, and for now the budget is pretty tight…once this is sorted, then i can start to think about playing outdoor :zonked:


#38

not sure if the question is directed to me, either way: mmm, dunno :neutral_face: haven’t had a chance to look at it properly…


#39

Should work with the A4 and RYTM but not OT or Mnm since it doesn’t have 6volt, but alot cheaper than the Tekkeon and seems to get good reviews.


#40

I live in Thailand, the Tekkeon is too expensive to ship from B&H, this might be an alternative, it has 12V for AR and A4, but no 6V.
