Hi guys, anyone able to solve or think about solution-adapter that would charge the Kontrol D2 from USB-C without the need for 220v plug? Like some adapter with input as USB-C and from there to the D2 power in?

    I will advice usb hub in between and ripcord cable.

    Thank you @Mutis, checked ripcord and seems it should work from usb-c as well! Will test out sooner or later for portable setup ;)

    Check not only the voltage (5v, 12,…) but the amount of mAh these could work. It should be enough for the D2 but double checking will avoid future deception. ;)

    Looks like it needs 15V input. Just like my S4 mk3.

    I made a mobile case with a 12v battery and a stepup converter to 15v.

    There are USB-C to barrel cables. Make sure the barrel is the correct size, and I would also measure the output voltage before pluggin it into your hardware: https://www.amazon.com/2-Pack-JacobsParts-Type-C-Trigger-Connector/dp/B08NS491XW?th=1 Just an example. I don't know if this exact cable is good or not.

    And check heat on the connects and cables after a few hours of use. Don't use this on a gig before you test it thoroughly.

    Lord-Carlos that looks even better! Noted your points and will order from the link for testing. Hopefully will somehow get at least one D2 to work portable.

    Please make sure it's the right barrel connector! I just linked the first item that showed up on google.

    And yes, if you find something that works please let us know. I might also change to that from my current setup.

    Yeye I will google around, as not a native english speaker so some trial-n-error method in orders until I find some with good voltage on meter to plug in I guess, will take a while in summer with current deliveries etc.

    Also polarity is important, not just diameter, voltage and wattage....
