Without the side-handle, you cannot power with the REDvolts yet. Michael is probably waiting for the 1B-2B cable that allows you to use your REDbricks, like I am doing.
NOTE: According to Ketch Rossi in another thread, DO NOT use your REDBrick charger to power your EPIC even though the cables will allow you to hook it up. You should get the new EPIC AC adapter for this. That is OK. I have two REDbricks and have ordered the EPIC AC adapter.
from what stuart english said at the link below, you can indeed use the 1B-2B cable on the ac power supply, but depending on which version you have (100w vs 150w), it may not be able to provide enough power. in the case of the 150 watt, you are good - but with the 100w - he does mention "Feel free to try it, but we can't recommend it - especially if you plan to add a PRO I/O to your configuration later on."
This was my silly attempt at some tongue-in-cheek humor, lol. I realize there is not much point in having a "FRAGILE - BRAINS INSIDE!!" sticker when there are NO BRAINS on the outside (referring to the FEDEX guys who throw boxes). Thankfully RED packs extremely well! Between the box, the heavy crushed paper, the storage case, and the closed cell foam, our Epics are protected from all but the worst types of shipping abuse.
