Sound Devices USBPre-alternate power source?

I just reads a review of the Sound Devices USBPre (two channle mic 
preamp with 24-bit digital output) in a back issue of Recording 
Magazine (Nov.2002) and think it may be ideal for me in the sense 
that it has some nice specs and has digital output (so I can plug 
directly into my Marantz CDR300 hard disk recorder).  Problem is 
that the USBPre is powered via the USB port of a computer.  
So...does anyone know of a way to adapt USB-powered devices to 
another form of external battery power (I don't own a laptop nor do 
I care to use one for field recording).  At around $550 for the 
USBPre, it's less than 50% of any other two-channel digital-output 
portable preamp that I know of (I'm thinking here of the Apogee 
MiniMe and the Lunatec V3).  Here's a link to the USBPre for those 
who are interested:
