How does it affect the E12's portability at all? The battery still lasts about 17 hours. The smart charging just means you can stick it on the charge when you go to bed and not have to worry about killing the battery.

 

I think bowei means having it perpetually plugged in defeats the purpose of having a portable amp. Might as well just get the E09 and call it a day.

How long does the E9 battery last? Charging the E12 once a day or two isnt a big deal imo

Having it charged in indefinitately.

E09 is a desktop amp. It doesn't take batteries.....

The battery of the E9 and E90K lasts as long as you have power

 

Because there is no battery.

Oops, is my newness showing?

Regardless, 17 hr battery life is portable enough for me.

I personally am not getting fully 17 hours. I do not drive it with large headphones either.

 

I'll get more concise data.

Hey pngwn! How's the synergy between the E12 and your AD900X's? RIght now I am listening on my laptop using a cheapo (but pretty darned good) ELE DAC, and I'm trying to choose between the E12 and the C&C. Thanks!

I don't want to worry about leaving it plugged in for a day or two if I don't end up using it. Give people a little more credit.

 

Anyway, I left it plugged in for a few hours and the light never stopped oscillating. Suggested battery charge time is 1.7 hours which is why I ask.

By the way, when E12's battery is fully charged (solid red charging light), and it's still plugged in, you can use the amp without the "noise".

@wayne

The E12 is makin my AD900X sound wonderful! Bass boost makes the low end very full, really fills in the rest of the spectrum. Sounds great without the boost as well though. I'll post more about it when I get home.

The term used was indefinitely.

 

Indefinitely plugging in a portable amp wouldn't be good value.

 

But yes, plugging it in a day or two. All is fine. If we all keep worrying about the battery here and there, we won't be able to enjoy the device. That is my philosophy.

post #1138 of 3214

By indefinitely I meant unspecified amount of time. It could be understood as unlimited too I suppose. tongue.gif

post #1139 of 3214

Thanks for the info by the way,

post #1140 of 3214

Sure

 

 

I'll do actual testing of battery life on my E12. I feel like it only gets 10 hours for me. But then again, I haven't been fully recording its usage time.
