I really like the size and layout of the Akai MPC One. Ever since I bought it I’ve been using it in my living room mostly. I like to use this one away from all of my other gear when I’m on the couch hanging out with the family, watching TV, or just making music.
So I bought a Ripcord cable from MyVolts to use with a battery pack so that I wouldn’t have to plug it in and run a cable or extension cord from behind the couch, or something. Also, keeps me from having a long power cable that could accidentally get stuck in the footrest LOL!
The Ripcord converts 5v USB power to whatever output you need. I bought a 19v version for the MPC One and it is working really well. Plus they have a bunch of other voltage versions for different types of gear.

nice bro your a wizard with the audio tech! how did you attach the battery to the bottom though? tape?
oh velcro! lol had to watch the whole vid my bad
All good! No doubt, yep, velcro, that way I can take the battery off if I want to. I’m using the XT Power battery now though instead of this setup.
Have you had any problems so far with the setup? Like the MPC One shutting down on itself ?
Shortly after getting this, I switched to the XT power bank, it seems more stable than this setup and no issues with the initial startup current draw
