I just purchased the Hifime SPDIF Optical 9018 DAC in order to use with a Chromecast Audio. I have purchased a Y cable from Amazon to power both with the same cable. However, i have heard a couple of mentions of powering it with a battery pack.
Can someone please explain further? Why is this better? what type of battery pack would I need? etc
Hi Kamal, you just use your order number if you need to contact us.
You can use a battery like the power packs that are used to charge phones. The benefit is that the DC power from a battery is cleaner compared to from a USB charger/power supply.
The DAC doesn't draw a lot of power, so you should be able to use it for a while on a single charge.
Ok, so contact the eBay seller first if you need support and they will handle it. You can also contact us (keep the paypal receipt).
