In the past I've seen a few external power supplies on-line that will allow you to supply 9v power to your bass via a stereo cable. A mono jack is then used to to carry the signal to your amp. Emg have something

Amongst my quiet time today I wondered how easy would it be to add an appropriate jack socket to a DS-5 and send 9v or 18v to your bass or guitar via a stereo cable and get the output in mono out of the mono output jack on the DS-5.
I know the battery drain of the non series instruments is not great but like the series basses you would be getting full power all the time to the bass.

Would Alembic offer that as a custom option when buying a DS-5? Even better if you could keep your batteries in the bass and like the series basses use it as backup.
