I think you can power the Babyface with a power bank or such, so that could be an option and I could imagine you could power it from a car-lighter with USB-adapter. I'm not much of a AD/DA believer so I might even try iPhone as a recorder if you are using BFP's preamps..

Zoom H4 PRO at least has horrific preamps so don't buy that one

Zoom F6 seems to have the best preamps etc. in the sub 1000€ category. But that's my totally uneducated assumption..
