    Thanks, anything cheaper?
    Or does it brings that much extra?

    A cheaper alternative http://www.amazon.co.uk/HQ-Universal...ds=12v+battery but I am not sure that it will be as good.

    It's 12v so yes.
    No idea what the quality is like though but looks to be a bargain.

    Not in the case of the Caiman and Bushmaster. They got an energy reserve system that can store about 4 seconds worth of power to drive the DAC if power is removed unexpectedly. That power reserve works very well with batteries in producing clean DC with zero noise or hum. But the new Mark Grant power supply comes extremely close to my Ankaka battery pack. I have been using one for a few weeks now and I really can't fault it.
