Default Battery Gainclone?

How about running a LM3875 from +/-12v battery PSU? Anyone try it? The result?

if i could get my gaincone to sound reasonably good, i would hook up my 12v battery supply to it and see how it sounds.

BUT, gainclones dont play well with maggies...

Well, not an LM3875 specifically (Apex PA-02 and PA-16) but it's worked well for me.

What? You hadn't figured that out yet? Why my biggest detractor is forever complaining that I just keep going, and going, and going...

No, no, no!!!
Sorry Jam, you are completely wrong, she's only mains powered.
Where did you get the idea that she's rechargable?

And sorry to dissapoint you Steve, she won't move the lawn
for you either. She might make some grilled sandwiches if
you're nice to her, though.
