The top audio interfaces running on batteries

The community's favorite battery-powered interfaces

Having an audio interface is very nice. Being able to use it anywhere is even better. Several manufacturers have introduced audio interfaces running on batteries to cater to the needs of nomad or wildlife-loving musicians who work only with a tablet, smartphone or laptop. With this in mind, we decided to ask our French community to tell us about their favorite battery-powered audio interfaces.

And this is what they told us:

Poll conducted from 03/03/2018 to 03/13/2018 - 102 participants - 1 response per participant

The go-to solution for most of the people who took part in the poll is a simple external battery that can power a regular USB audio interface, as well as recharge other devices like a smartphone or tablet. A practical and cheap solution indeed!
