I recently wrote an article about powering a Korg Volca from the mains – but here at MyVolts, we’ve got exciting news: we’ve developed and manufactured a unique new cable that lets you power a Korg Volca from any USB port!
It works with the Volca Beats, Volca Keys, Volca Sample and Volca Bass.
That means you can power the Volca from a laptop, desktop, USB hub, iPhone charger, a port on a USB hub, a USB battery – or any other place you have a USB type A port.
All USB ports have both power and data – so you can even use the USB port of, say, a MIDI controller to power your Volca.
No matter where in the world you bought your Volca, or where in the world you’re using it to create sounds, you can power it without worrying about plugging it into a wall socket. USB is the same worldwide, so you can just connect it to a USB port and away you go!
Fewer bulky plugs
Mains plugs take up loads of room, and who knows if you can use the same plug for multiple devices, when the specification information is so impenetrable? Well, we’re working on a solution for that at MyVolts, but for now, you can slim down what you carry – our USB cables are tiny, so much smaller than a mains plug.
It takes the 5V DC from a USB port, and turns it into the 9V the Volca needs to run. The Volca draws exactly the amps it needs to work, and there’s no loss of performance at all.
It’s Energy Star level 5 approved, and CE and RoHS certified.
