      Most Useful and Necessary!

      I bought this adapter because the Zoom Q3 doesn't ship with one. The thing EATS aa batteries, so this adapter is not only useful, it's necessary.

      Works well, and is a necessary addition to a Q3, unless you are happy replacing batteries after every hour of use, since no adapter is included with the product. However, cord is unusually short, which limits its use, since recording video/audio often requires being distant from an outlet. In addition, the adapter cannot be used to charge indwelling batteries (as with, for example, a cellphone or ipod adapter), and the battery life of the Q3 is quite limited. Zoom should sell the Q3 with an adapter that also serves as a recharger, despite the extra cost to the consumer.All that said, B+H was a great company to do business with-[...]

        Just a power adapter for a Zoom recorder. Zoom support great and B & H had the product on my desk the next day. Could not have been a better experience.

          It is the stock AC adapter that comes with the Zoom H4n. I got it because I lost mine and has been a great replacement ever since. It is the exact same one you get with the zoom.

            Comments about Zoom AD-14 AC Adapter:

            Lost the adapter that came with the zoom and this is a great replacement. I've found it's much more effective to just plug in your zoom and leave the power on while recording any live events, that way you can just hit record and your rolling, otherwise you've got to be concerned about battery life and every time you turn off the H4N takes forever to power back on. So just use this AC adapter and leave the thing on.

                Comments about Zoom AD-14 AC Adapter:

                I own a Zoom R24 Digital Recording station. Though with the new unit comes an AC adapter, plus the machine also works on batteries, I always like to keep an extra AC power adapter in case of failure.

                B&H had the best price on this accessory. It is up to you obviously, but because my R24 is moved from my home studio to an "on location" basis, the extra power supply is like an insurance policy for me.

                        This is used to power the Zoom H4N when recording interviews for a documentary we're shooting. Our audio supervisor requested an ac power cord to use whenever we have electricity available so he doesn't have to rely on batteries. Works great. Simple to use - just plug it in and you've got steady, ac power, no worries. Shipping was fast. Surprised it didn't come standard with the Zoom, but it's a great add on.

                                          I use this to power a Zoom Q3. I can now record as many hours as a want without worrying about batteries. I use it to record gigs or band rehearsals. The cord for the adapter is longer than I thought it would be, which is a big plus. Definately get this adapter, you NEED IT!

                                          What is there to say. It's an adapter. Plug it in and it works.

                                              I use this as an adapter for my Zoom Q3 audio/video recorder. It works great, and saves me from having to use new batteries all the time. Inexpensive and decent quality.

                                              I have owned it for over 2 weeks now and use it 3-4 times a week for an extended period of time.

                                                    If you buy a Zoom Q3 you must have this AC adapter, unless you own a battery company. ;)

                                                        I needed a second power supply for another workstation. This one is identical to the one that came with my R16 at the time of purchase.

                                                          I ordered this adapter to use with my Zoom Q3. It works just fine so far, and certainly beats using batteries (except in the kind of situation where no outlets are available). The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is that the price is a little steep.
