      I think you should ask to the guy who did the video on YouTube.
      An mk2 with built-in battery, I would buy it for sure

      A great mod this. Pretty easy to do and I used a different less protruding knob.
      Fully charged lasts for hours.

        Nice! Any problems with the unit heating up?

        The Blackbox is becoming my ultimate portable groovebox with all the features they added.

        1010music should really consider a battery bank base/stand for it and maybe also compatible with the Bluebox. Add some magnet magic for the easy of use and it’ll be a beauty.

        For even simpler they can just make a magnetic bottom stand that’s empty on the inside for « bring your own battery » usage, doesn’t have to be any huge battery.

          Do you have a link for the battery you used?
          Looks like the one listed on that guys website is no longer available

              saw this video when it came out. I got the battery here:

              I'll be trying the mod soon.

              where can I find the switch from the picture above? I prefer it to the one from the video, which is more likely to get flicked unintentionally

                  This is so cool.

                  Few questions though:

                  - What about temperature? Wont it get too hot and effect the components inside?

                  - How long can one charge last?

                    It's a great idea and I saw the video a while back. I use a double battery system, unless you can charge the internal battery from another battery, it ends up needing a mains power supply... Ultimately it will have a power cable going into it, I prefer knowing my battery wont leak, degrade or explode within my BB lol

                      Hey there,

                      inspired by the other post here i build myself also a battery mod:

                      * Uses Charge/Power Chip (IP5306) with included Power Key (Single Push Turn On / Double Push Turn Off)
                      * 5000 mah LIPO Battery which gives around 4-6 hours of usage

                      I splitted the power lines inside the usb jack, so i could have the power module inbetween power input and the blackbox circuit board.

                      Also I had to move the SMD Condensators to make this large battery fit as you can see on the images.
                      Currently there is no Battery Level Display, but i plan to move the PowerModule's Leds somewhere outside.

                      Cheers from Hamburg

                        inspired by this i made my version with a little larger battery and a proper on/off switcher
