      Does not include cable to recorder

      The power adapter works just fine. Only problem was that you will need a USB cable to connect the adapter to your recorder. I just happened to already own one. [...]

      OK, here we go. First, I have a Tascam DR-08. The cheapest little digital recorder they sell (as far as I know). It should have, but did not come with an external power supply. Prolly why it was so cheap. Nevertheless, I bought this and although it was the right adapter, it did NOT come with a USB to mini USB adapter...ugh. This was like 20 or 25 with shipping and now another 10 for a cable. Did I mention it works fine? It does. BTW I'm not using this with a computer so this seemed like the best way to power up the little recorder. I'm sure there are cheaper was to go.

        I just got this to use with my DR-60DmkII. I use that for filmmaking, and try to use batteries as little as possible. This should really come with the DR-60DmkII, but since it doesn't, it's worth the minuscule investment.

              Connect this to your Tascam, and save your battery collection. I'm so glad I found this adapter. I'll still use batteries when I need the tascam to be on the go with a boom mic, but for stationary purposes, you need this.

                I give it 4 stars because I haven't used it long. But one can tell quality. It is very convenient to have a USB power adapter for when I don't have a computer to charge my devices. Not entirely confident about how many devices can charge through USB using this device but I use it fof my Tascam audio recorders

                While batteries give me freedom to move around, when I'm in a fixed position near electricity this adaptor offers me the ability to save those batteries and gives me unlimited run time as opposed to about 2-4 hours on batteries.

                What can I say, add power and go! I bought this for the DR-70D because I do a lot of indoor location work with condenser mics. This plus a spare battery pack is indispensable.

                      I wish Tascam would bundle the power supply with the handheld recorders and charge a little more for the complete product. Had to order the power supply separately but it works just fine.

                          I needed to record a separate audio track for event videos. In the past I have attached my Tascam DR-60D to my laptop for USB bus power, but that was just one more heavy piece of equipment to lug to the event and keep an eye on during the shoot.The PS-P515U is a simple, affordable solution. I still keep batteries in the unit in case something should happen to the power, but it's nice not to have to keep an eye on the battery indicator along with everything else I have to do.It's well-built and a nice problem solver.

                                  When this product arrived I was ready to return it since I could not find a plug-in on my recorder. After going to the Tascam site I learned that the USB port servered double duty.

                                    Incredibly useful, very compact and lightweight, but won't fall apart on you.Uses the USB cable, and is perfectly easy to attach/assemble.

                                          The power adapter that I bought after the fact for my Tascam Dr-60D does what is't supposed to do: bring AC power to the recording device. You definitely need the AC option since the power is sucked out of batteries quickly using phantom power for your mics. One problem: it does not come with the USB side of the cable. Luckily I had several. I didn't see this mentioned in the ad. Otherwise, it is fine.

                                            I love the Tascam DR-40 but it can go through AA's a bit quickly. This power adapter is simple and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Who could ask for more? There's never any stopping to replace batteries in the midst of an interview or shoot. FYI ... you'll need to provide a USB (mini on one end) for this. I like that I can get my own slightly longer cable and keep the unit on the floor or not attached to my tripod.

                                              The Tascam audio recorders all have ample hours of service on AA batteries, and mine performs fine using alkaline or Ni-MH batteries. But, for additional assurace, when I reach into the cupboard for new batteries and none are there, I bought the Tascam PS-P515U AC power adapter. Even if I never use it (and I have a few times so far to check it out), its priced right and gives me the assurace that I will never be left with a recorder that can't be used. I keep and use equipment for many years and I feel that the best time for periferals is right now, when they are still available.
