I'm seeing if I can use a different battery pack instead of using the one provided in the kits. If I can't that's fine but it would be nice to know what is compatible without hurting the board.

Anything that supplies steady 5 to 9v DC at more than 200ma I believe is enough.

I experimented with the Fishman Fluence battery pack, but it was not able to deliver enough current.  In the end I installed a Lithium Ion rechargeable 9V battery in the tremolo spring cavity.  That has worked out very well with decent charge duration.

A regular 9 volt battery will work in whatever battery compartment you can find.  Please be careful not to exceed 10 volts as this will fry the board.  I know this from experience...

The ATG DSP 4 will draw around 225 mA when pushed.
