    Zoom AD-17 reviews

    AD-17 AC Adapter for R8, H6, H2n, H1, H1n, H3-VR & Q2HD Recorders is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixes my issues of going through batteries I semi-professionally do video for bands and events around my area (filming/recording close to 100 bands a year). My favorite piece of equipment has to be my Zoom H6 which I am able to run up to 6 channels to and get a solid audio recording. I have next to zero background in audio recording, and the H6 made it easy enough that an idiot (me) can do it. This is fantastic and all, but if you have phantom power going to that many channels you can expect to have to change the batteries every hour and a half roughly. This just wasn't working for me since occasionally I would have to change batteries up to three times on a night of shooting which costs about $10. Grabbed this and now I can just keep my Zoom H6 plugged in and almost cut out the battery expense 100% which helps my bottom line. If you have ever worked with up and coming musicians, you know that getting paid is difficult enough. Cut out $10 a shoot of expenses and it just helps me stay profitable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slight Hum This AC adapter does exactly what it is supposed to do. I have it powering my Zoom H6 since I am using phantom power on a Rode NTG1. One thing I did notice is a slight hum when I put a power load on it. It is quiet enough so that I did not pick it up in my recordings, but if I put mic by it I'm sure it would pick up the hum. I'm not sure why it is doing this. It could be something I am doing to cause it to hum.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be included with Unit Works great. My only complaint would be that I think it should be included with the unit instead of an accessory.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why is this not included? It's kind of a necessity for me, I enjoy doing interviews and having the H6 plugged into the wall for power. It's kind of a bummer that Zoom does not include this with the H6, as the AC Adapter would come with an H4N when you would order it. The H6 doesn't seem to eat batteries as the H4N used to, so maybe that's why they do not include it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't this come with the H6 to begin with! This is a review for the adapter for the H6 that allows you to plug in your device to a wall outlet via the USB cable. Note: you need the USB cable for this and it does not come with it. I was using batteries to power my H6 until I was just using all six inputs and started going thru batteries like crazy. I much prefer this to using batteries. It works as it says it does. The original USB cable that came with my H6 is fine, but a bit short in length. Just wish it was included when you bought the H6.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product, used for H6 recorder We are using this adapter with the Zoom H6 Handy Recorder for TV studio production to hook up up to four microphones. Works beautiful!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AD-17 AC Adapter for Q2HD & Q4HD The ZOOM Q4HD isn't listed in the specs, but that's what I bought it for. It has the same power requirements as the models listed. It charges the battery quicker than using the PC's USB port. It comes with the adapter, but you need to use the cable that comes with the camera. It fits the Q4HD as well as the other products listed. The 4 stars go to ZOOM's price point on this item, not to B&H. B&H had the cheapest price that I found on it.
