"two steps to figure out what size battery you need:

1. figure out power consumption of your synth
-look at the synth's power supply for voltage and current (mA)
-multiply volts times current in Amps (A=milliamps/1000)
-Resulting number is the power consumption in watts
-do this for each synth you want to power

2. look at the mWh (milli watt hours) spec of the battery
-divide the number (in watts = milliwatts/1000) by the total power consumption (in watts) of your synths
-the resulting number is how many hours you can run this load for

therefore: if your synth draws, say, 30 watts, and you want to be able to run it for two hours, get a battery that provides 60 watt hours, or 60000mWh - the halo bolt is pretty close to this at 58830mWh. if you need a beefier battery, look for something with a higher mWh rating, something in the 100000mWh-200000mWh range. happy synthing :)
