mobile use - powering Octatrack from battery? 2 Years, 2 Months ago
Hey,
I think it would be fun (at least for me) to use my octatrack in the wild, parcs and streets.
There are some options for battery powered portable boomboxes.
But does anybody know a elegant solution to power the octatrack? Is there a kind of recharchable powering device which is not a car battery?
I really have no idea about volts and watts, so please be polite if this question is trivial.
Is there a product available which is a kind of combined recharchable boombox AND powerprovider for the Octa?

Yep, the link above is the best info.

Only danger is how addicted you get to battery freedom!
I now run my live rig on two of these batteries, and have another for OTing while travelling or on the balcony.
Don't think I've used the elektron power supply in 6 months.


The tekkeon ones aren't cheap but seem good quality. I got mine here:

Will I need to do any modification for using Tekkeon or is it plug-and-play so to speak?
Is the correct adapter tip for OT included with the Tekkeion?

I forgot.
Does it come with a charger that works in Europe?
I only find them in US stores.

Many thanks to all the input! I think this Tekkeon device is the one I am looking for.
But still have to find a shop which sells one in Europe/Germany...

There is an international section for retailers. I ordered one in Canada today, check it out.

You can order from France I think as well.
