Here are a couple of portable power supplies which we recommend:
2. What is a ClipWire?
The ClipWire connects the Batsub TooL to the UPA (see FAQ # 1 above). The ClipWire is included with each Batsub TooL.

- Matches with blue-colored ring tip of UPA's DC-Plug (Male type)

3. Does Batsub recommend any brand of UPA?
Yes, we recommend the following:
1. For Home and AC oulets: HOSA Technology, Model number ACD-477
2. For Automotive 12V outlet: (see below)
Note: All UPA's are made by independent manufacturers which are separate entities from the Batsub maker. The Batsub company does not manufacture any Universal Power Adapter. Select Batsub kits may include a UPA to convenience our customers. Please be sure to read and follow the instructions that come with your power adapter for its proper use.
1. What is a Universal Power Adapter (U.P.A.)?
A Universal AC-DC Power Adapter (UPA, for short) is an adapter which plugs into a wall outlet and has a selector for variable voltage. A UPA also has multiple plug-tips which are changeable to accommodate one of many common sizes.
Here is an example of a UPA, with detachable-exchangeable tips (left). The UPA is attached to the Batsub TooL (middle). The UPA plugs into an outlet (right).
