External battery for Perform-VG

Hi,
I would like to be able to run my Perform-VG using an external battery. My plan has been to use an adapter for 10 rechargeable NiMH batteries. When newly loaded, this will give a higher voltage than 12 volt though, at least with no load. Would this be a problem?

What about actually using a lower voltage than 12 v? Would even 9 volt be enough if I don't need the phantom power?

Ideally though I would like to find a powerpack that can output both 9 and 12 volt, to be able to power both my Perform-VG as well as my 9 volt pedals. Is there such a product available?

Thanks in advance!

External battery

Hi there.
I am using a powerbank with 12 V output and it's working fine.
Eventually this one.
But eventually you need a polarity inverter too.
I have found this at a music instruments shop here in germany. www.thomann.de

Re: External battery

I did look at powerbanks with a 12 V output, but I eventually went for a voltage step-up cable that I can run from any USB powerbank. I got this Birdcore: https://www.songbirdfx.com/products/birdcord12v/

 

A polarity swither will also be needed.

 

The Perform-VG is an awesome product! Smiley Happy Something that would make it even better if it had some compression feature for the guitar, maybe as part of the Bodyrez. I wonder if this could be added through a firmware update?!?

 

Cheers,
