What battery powered amps for harp do you guys recommend for busking. I've heard that the Pignose Legendary 7-100 is good and also the Lectrosonics Mouse which was discontinued.
What other options are out there?

I use the Pignose 7-100 as a practice amp in the house. Great busking amp.
The Mouse is probably louder though. I think they might still make the Maxi Mouse?
I have a Pignose 7-100, and a Pignose Hog-20. I don't busk, but if I did I would use the Hog-20. I like it because of the rechargeable lead-acid battery. It lasts along time, and its rechargeable !
If you rig-up a delay and even a harp commander (battery version) you can probably get a great sound out of it.
That's my limited little amp experience.
I have an Danelectro Honey Tone amp. It sound great for me, you can hear me playing on it on:
I haven't tried it on the street yet (to cold for harping), but I think it should do fine while busking.
Busking: Playing on the street.
I use a Roland micro cube, very portable and loud, works for me
I have an AXL thin amp, comes in a bag like a lap top computer, has loads of effects and is pretty good when just used for effects before plugging in to my Fender champ, it was worth buying just for the effect actually as it was cheaper than cheapest equivalent pedals
It has RCA ins so I can use jam tracks from my Ipod with the volume controlled from there and master volume on amp is for the Mic. Use a car Jump starter with cigarrette socket and get 9 Hrs+ playing. Also has own small battery for 2-3 hrs play.
I used a Roland Micro Cube for about a year. I really liked it.
Then I got a Roland Micro Cube RX which is louder and the 3 way equalizer has much better tone control. Works continuously for 8 hours with rechargeable AA batteries.
