      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.

        So far so good. I used it for the first time today; saved batteries and kept me from worrying about continual power in live recording. I would definitely buy this again. Very easy to set-up and use.

          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.

              Comments about Tascam PS-P515U AC to USB Power Adapter:

              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.

                              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.

                                  Comments about Tascam PS-P515U AC to USB Power Adapter:

                                  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.

                                    Nice long cord, and works quite well as advertised.

                                      If you buy the Tascam DR-60 you will most definitely need this piece of equipment since the DR-60's battery life is not that great.

                                        I don't have a choice but to buy this charger because my Tascam DR-60 D DSLR audio adapter doesn't come with battery charger.

                                                We use this adapter with our Tascam audio recorder, a handy addition to our gear set if/when we don't want to use up the batteries.

                                                    I use it to power my Tascam DR-60D.
                                                    Its small, lightweight, and easy to connect.
                                                    I only wish it could be mounted on a tripod mount, but its small enough and lightweight enough that it can hang on the side, and secured with some gaffers tape so it won't disconnect.
