        Very nice!

        Is the unit getting warmer with this battery insight?

                In the short term, I followed a guy's video in this forum to create my own portable solution. Basically, I use a strip of dual-lock on the back of the BB, which is also on my smaller Anker power bank, so that to go portable, I just attach the battery to the bottom of the BB with a super short USB cable between. Just need to add some additional rubber feet for when not using the battery (to be taller than the dual-lock). The battery has a push button indicator, so I can easily see battery life left, and I got 2 batteries to swap as needed. All of that (including one of the batteries, the small cable, a wired set of ear buds, and an aux cable and iPhone headphone adapter for sampling) fits in a little bluetooth speaker case.

                That being said, an MK2 of BB with built in battery, on/off switch, and master volume would be cool.

                    This is Hot Bananas !! 4-6 hours of usage.

                    'Also I had to move the SMD Condensators to make this large battery fit' .... YES YOU DID lol. No mercy, move those pesky Capacitors.
