I got a couple of those hmmmmm
Huge marks for efficient use of resources. Nothing pretty about the battery though
hm, I've got questions about this setup:
1. it doesn't cut off like PowerAdd at high volume?
2. how many Ah battery to get for a couple of hours? (I believe, Dewalt makes from 2 to 12 Ah, but larger are more expensive.)
That's this one? - Poweradd Pilot Pro2 Portable Battery Charger for Laptops and USB Devices
Does it come with the appropriate adapter so you can just plug the amp right into it or did you need anything else?
That's the one and yes, it fits under th handle like in my picture too
1. No, it doesn't cut off. At least not at the volumes I've played along with a couple electric guitars. A drill can pull a lot of current.
2. That's the 4Ah pack in the photo. The packs have 3 LED lights to show remaining capacity. After a 2+ hour rehearsal last week, all 3 lights still light up. I also have 1.3Ah packs. They work fine too, but I haven't tried them for as long yet. Next rehearsal I'll use the 1.3Ah pack and see how long it goes.
thanks, please keep us posted.
one more thing I wanted to ask about DeWalt setup is that cable that connects the battery to the combo is DeWalt-made of self-made? I don't own any DeWalt devices, but it seems like I need the battery, the charger and the cable.
See posts 25, 26, and 28 for the info.
...and it has a plug that fits the double four?!??
Isn't that the one that was giving you trouble at high outputs?
Nope, I've been fine. I don't dime it nonstop but it does loud for a good long time.
I like to toss it on a desk or a table...I'm just lazy and don't want to deal with outlets, plus the plug seems like it won't last tons of abuse. I really want a 2nd one for a stereo pair. I've been using this and a briefcase to monitor some testing of a poly effects beebo / digit (stereo effect w crazy imagine) and having a pair of these to toss anywhere around the house would be amazing!!!
Report: the Dewalt 1.3Ah (25Wh) pack lasted the entire 2 hours of rehearsal with room to spare. So if you have a battery that can handle the peak current needs, it doesn't have to be huge.
Just got the poweradd pilot pro2. It's charging now. Seems like the "C" adapter would be the right fit and although the directions read oddly, I think I press the one button until it indicates that I've got 12volts output then plug it in and off we go. Can't wait to get it fired up!!!
Nevermind the goofy questions...it all came together once the charge finished. 20 volts...use the long cable...boom, and just like that, I'm portable!!!
It's a great feeling to have awesome tone just by carrying it around to wherever you need it
Does anyone know the size of the barrel plug for the “out” socket on the Lenmar PPU916 battery? I’m trying to make a one-piece power cord to the double4.
Now you can pester that dog next door!
I like following my wife around the house playing while she tries to escape!
