Battery Power:

The LBZ42 power supply has been designed to run from many different power sources.  Power it from the provided DC adapter in the studio or from an external battery in the field or a 12V accessory power port in your vehicle.  We have tested the LBZ42 with a few off the shelf battery solutions which are listed below:

Talentcell Rechargeable 6000mAh Li-Ion Battery:  Unregulated no-frills 12V rechargeable battery pack.  Simple and inexpensive.

YCPower MP-S2300 Solar Charger:  This seems to be a generic import that is sold under a number of name brands.  The solar panel is useless, but it looks cool.

Anker 2nd Gen Astro Pro2 20000mA:  Nice compact package and reasonable play time.  The USB port is handy for powering an external sequencer.

GOAL ZERO YETI 150 SOLAR GENERATOR:  Total overkill for the Traveler.  With the solar add-on your LBZ would play until the end of time.

12V UPS Sealed AGM:  These are typically used in uninterruptible power supplies and are inexpensive and readily available.  Many DIY charging solutions or just trickle charge from a DC power supply.
