HX Stomp powered by a USB Power Bank (SUCCESS)

Post by bassegg »

HX Stomp owners may find this helpful? After a bit of trial and error I finally have my stomp running off battery power. You need 3 things:

1. USB 9V Step-Up Power Cable $16.90 from Jaycar

2. Truetone CL6 Line 6 convertor $6 from Rockshop

3. USB power bank battery thingy

Notes:
-The USB to 9V cable is center positive so you need to reverse that. The Truetone CL6 reverses polarity and has the correct plug size for the HX Stomp.
-You probably need a decent power bank that outputs at least 2A - 3A. Also if you want it to last a few hours you'll probably want 10,000mAh or more. I've been using a cheap Kmart one that has 2A output and 5000mAh. It works but it lasts about 1 hour so I really should get a better one.

Anywho, good luck... I take no responsibility for exploded HX Stomps based on my terrible advice.

Just thought I’d say I found this extremely helpful!
I’m currently running my stomp off a spare Apple phone charger thanks to this!
