i'm looking for something that i can plug my amp into to make it portable...like a rechargable outlet? something battery-powered that would power a non battery-powered amp if i hooked it up to it.
i don't know if this makes much sense...

has anyone heard of something like this, or am i just crazy? thnx.

A big rechargeable 12V battery and an inverter capable of supplying your amp's power demand would work. Won't be cheap. Look at places that sell stuff for campers & RVs.

Or carry a small gas-powered generator. That's especially good if you want to play environmentalist-themed songs.

I have a Crate Taxi with an integral rechargeable battery - they make them in a few different sizes and wattages.

Works well, I've used it in a lot of different situations.

Rico, I would have mentioned the same thing. Xantrec (sp?) makes a lot of power supply/charger/inverter equipment. I just had a AC battery charger by them installed in my sailboat so I can keep my two batteries charged and conditioned while plugged into shorepower. The boat tech at our marina swears by their gear. At $106, it's one of the cheaper pieces of gear they make, :shock: ! Just be glad it doesn't have the word "marine" in the description, or the price goes way up. :lol:

Yeah, the words "marine," "aircraft," or "medical" always do that.
