Use dummy battery on an R6 for continuous use ?

I've a dummy battery for my 6D which I sold and I tried it on the R6 and all fitted perfectly (same battery size), but the R6 stayed dead. The power supply was 8 V DC. Fortunately I did not damage anything as when I returned the LP-E6NH into it it worked again. But now I am reluctant to try it again..

Does somebody have experience with dummy batteries and external 8V power supply ?
