How to power up a Numark PT01 or Vetsax Handytrax with a power bank.
If you have been using your Numark PT01 or Vestax Handytrax indoors and now want to cut outside, you will sooner or later face the challenge of securing the power supply.
Of course, some people now say that they just use D Cells, but it's not that simple.
Depending on how many mods you have already installed in your device the battery life will be reduced. So if you plan to cut with your homeboys all afternoon on the beach, your plan will be a flop within hours. The batteries you use do not even have to be completely empty. In our test with a unit that has a modded tone arm, a start stop button and a fader, the device turned off at 60% of its battery life.
The reason is that the batteries can no longer provide the required 9V voltage.
If you want to make sure that your scratch session will not become a flop session you should use a powerbank.
And here's the next challenge, but it's easy to overcome: The powerbank has an output voltage of 5V and your PT01 Scratch or Vestax Handytrax 12V input voltage. To overcome this hurdle you need a converter cable that converts the 5V voltage of the powerbank into 12V. You take the cable and plug the USB connector into your powerbank and the connector on the other side into the power input of your PT01 or Handytrax. we recommend a powerbank with at least 1A output power and 10.0000 mAh capacity.
If you have any questions then feel free to leave a comment.
I have linked the appropriate converter cable to you a little further down.
