This simple cable can give you another powering option for your recorder. At only 6 bucks I had to give it a try. It works just as advertised, converting a small USB power bank into 12V for my Zoom F4.

Something I didn’t realize is that these little cell phone chargers keep a constant 5 volts which means it will step up to a constant 12 volts. That means your battery will read as full charge in the recorder until it dies completely. Because it keeps a constant 12 volts however, it can be plugged directly into the DC input of the F8.

A fun little back up power solution in case your in a pinch.
