    A little attention to grammar may help, some punctuation to at least make the string of words comprehensible.

    Standard USB = 5v 500mA output. Possibly not enough to charge and run your device.

    What voltage does the player need on the jack plug 9v - 12v possibly?

    The player is a Blaupunkt model nopd6071.
    It is indeed a 9volt and I do have the charger, however the battery life is only 2 hours and the flight is 8 hours, so was looking to keep it charged.
    There is no mains power on the airplane so I need to look at alternatives.

    Hi,

    maybe a power pack would give you a few extra hours.
    Y'all take care now.

    So your trying to run a 9V device on 5v and possibly just 500mA at that.

    Chuck the DVD player away and get an MP4 player, or stick videos on a smart phone.

    Well, yes, it was horrific to read that original post, but I do think we got the gist of it...

    Those portable DVD players don't have the best battery lives. Even using a USB pack to increase running time probably won't help you on an 8 hour flight.

    I'm guessing this is to entertain a child .. if you are on an international flight they typically have built-in entertainment systems with a load of films/TV shows to watch.

    My suggestion, if you don't want to rely on their entertainment - Buy an Amazon 7" tablet for £30, fill a microSD card with the shows you want. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Amazon-Fire-7-Inch-Tablet-8GB/dp/B00Y3TM6CO/

    You might be able to access video files saved on a USB stick inserted into the USB socket from the in seat entertainment hub

    When has that ever stopped anyone specifying requirements? 😂

    A Google search returns mixed views. It might depend on the specific entertainment system. However, I'd agree a cheap Kindle Fire is probably the better option.
