Portable Charger Anker PowerCore 20100mAh - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Outputand and PowerIQ Technology, External Battery Pack for iPhone, iPad & Samsung Galaxy & More (Black) [link]
This is the portable charger I purchased. It's $50 and it has worked perfectly fine so far but I haven't owned it for very long. It takes a few hours to fully charge the Switch but it can be used while the Switch is on.
I have this Anker Power Core that I absolutely fucking love.
It's kinda hefty, but sleek and worth the extra weight. Takes about 10 hours to charge, but it can charge your phone 5-7 times depending on which one you get, and the charge does NOT deplete if you leave it in your car. I had it in my car all summer and winter in Michigan for 8 months, and when i took it out, still showed 4/4 lights of charge.
I use mine a lot in hotels and stuff where the plug is too far from the bed, and I also use it a lot at work and stuff like that.
I've had it for 3 years now and it hasn't lost any battery power, PLUS it comes with two USB ports so you can charge two different things at once.
I've been using it to charge my iPhone X and Apple Watch for the last 3 days to test it out and it still has 2/4 power level bars left. Absolutely amazing.
Electricity is power.
Buy yourself one or two of these and revel in ~~the time you can spend on snapchat~~ the ability to avoid shackling yourself to the power strip warlords. It'll charge your phone 3-4 times so you only have to charge it every other day at worst.
Be careful who knows of your power. Someone will approach you every bus ride to try and mooch if your secret gets out. If you're feeling particularly heartless, you could probably charge snacks for time with your battery. The plight of the common pleb is of no concern to you, after all.
That phone also costs $1000. For $50 I can get a great USB battery and keep mine and someone else's phones charged for that same 6 hours. For the few hundred dollars price difference between that and what I paid for my phone when it was new plus that battery, I'll suffer the inconvenience of having a cable attaching my phone to my pocket.
I do wish I had some sort of nighttime photo mode on my phone, though. The Oneplus community has always been rather upset at the quality of our cameras.
To give you an idea this Anker 20100 is well thought of (TheWirecutter likes it and it has great reviews). I picked it up on Prime Day for $30 and thought that was a great deal.
So basically anything around $30 for a decent charger of this size is a pretty solid deal.
I use this one, last for hours. but not sure if it would be a good counterweight. Tried it as counterweight once, it seems too heavy so I strap it on my back instead on a back support strap normally. link
Get a battery bank for each piece of equipment. Something like this. You'll have to figure out the power needs and buy the correct size. I use one to power my mom h6 and it lasts forever.
12W Apple charger would be okay, however I wouldn't recommend keeping the MYLE plugged in for longer than 40 minutes on that thing, as it's a constant power output.
The Battery pack I was referring to (Although this applies to all juice-packs) is this one.
As for the information regarding the battery and pod versions, The Juice Punk is the Canadian distributor for the MYLE, so this information is passed on to us through MYLE HQ. Hope that was helpful, and let me know if there's anything else I can help clarify for you. :)
Hey there! Personally, I use this Anker PowerCore 20100mAh power bank, and it definitely gets the job done. I personally use an S9+, and while I usually do IRL streams for 2-4 hours I don't run into power problems. The charge on the bank could easily charge my phone completely 3-4 times over. As for the mic, I can't help you there as I don't use one, but I'm very curious to see what kind of recommendations you get for that so I'll stay tuned. Good luck!
I didn't know this was considered big. Also you can practically stick it right under your couch without having to see the wire or power bank. Those things are absolute gimmicky, you could buy a similarly priced couch that has better quality that doesn't have a usb charger.
I bought this of Amazon Au:
It was 59 over black Friday, arrived within a few days as it is sold by "Anker Au"
It didn't come with a charge cable, I have been using the one I got with my pro controller for now while I look in what a "proper" charging cable is.
I have no complaints, but to be fair I am waiting till I do a charge cable to do rigorous testing.
Hope this helps.
I was wondering if this was the non-switch version. As far as I can see it is but just want to make sure.
I just wanted to add that I got the Nintendo Joy-Con Charging Grip and that comes with a USB C to USB A cable that actually charges pretty rapidly - enough that I can play and still have the battery increase. I would say roughly 3 or 4 hours to full charge if asleep, but I have never actually timed it.
I also use this Anker power bank.
This past weekend I was in LA with my family and it fully charged our phones (all iPhone 8’s) 5 times and partially charged my sister’s switch before I took it to fully charge my own. After all of that the power bank is still at 50% power.
I fully recommend the official Nintendo USB C to USB A cord (although I am not sure if it is available to purchase independent of the Joy-Con Charging Grip) and the Anker Power Bank (I know they make larger ones with even more charge but the one I linked is honestly more than enough and is the perfect size).
Just my two cents since I was really surprised to read that the OP said it takes 1 hr to charge 10% with USB (and asleep at that) when my switch fully charged in the length of a football game.
Edit: I see now that graphic I was looking at was for in flight outlets, with my Anker I didn’t need those at all.
I found one one amazon. Is this the same one? If not, which is the better buy? amazon
Well, you have to realize that a pack that takes "all day" to charge is high capacity battery that's going to last a lonnnng time. My 10,000 mah battery takes a few hours with a fast charger - but it's enough to charge my phone 4 times (most take around 2500 mah). A small 2000 mah battery may only take an hour or two but it isn't going to last long - it'll charge a phone about once or a little less.
I find that if I'm careful I can get through the full week on about 2 sets off AAs on lights like that, as log as you're dilligent about turning them off when not on use. On a 10,000 MaH battery, you're probably going to get the full week on a single trips. 1-4 ports - doesn't really matter but if you wanna power two strips, obviously you'll need two ports.
10,000 mah battery might get you through the week on two strips though these days you can get a 20,000 pack for barely more. I'd get that. There's a nice one from anker and you can use it for your phone, too. Link here.. It WILL take a full day to initially charge but you'll get like 8 charges on your phone off of that.
... I'd personally just use AAs though.
Found this for half the price and same capacity just without PD.

What does PD add to the charger?
Play some pokemon go to pass the time along the way.
Also I'd like to suggest Portable Charger Anker PowerCore 20100mAh - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, External Battery Pack for iPhone, iPad & Samsung Galaxy & More (Black) [link]
I use this one
Also check out this one, which seems similar:

I can't guarantee anything but you'll probably get at least 4 hours from that if you max both ports.
> I doubt there would be enough usb ports and a sufficient power supply to maintain hours of use with a higher end keyboard and mouse
Why would a keyboard use up much power at all? It shouldn't, no matter how high end it is. Same with the mouse.
All the devices you mentioned should run easily half a day with heavy usage as a minimum by just using a small battery pack made with phones and tablets in mind. For example this Anker power back is enough to power a VR headset (Rift / Vive) with its dual OLED screens, the tracking tech (in case of Rift multiple independent IR LED) and a high quality sound output on top of two independent wireless transceiver (2.4/5ghz and 60ghz) in form of the TPcast wireless solution for around five hours:
Now look at the amount of space in that couch thingy is. You could easily put a few of those batteries in there.
Depends. A lot of powerbanks have chips that adjust the amperage based on what the device can handle. This is what I went with - [link] - Although most of Anker's powercore power banks have their "PowerIQ" tech that is designed to moderate flow of power.
I went with that though because it wasn't too expensive and still had solid capacity. There are plenty out there with more capacity.
Wife has a 12kmah Anker, and I've got the 20100mah. Mine is slightly larger and heavier than hers, but both are fantastic and worth the weight.
Even charging tablet, phone and multiple camera batteries during the day, I've never drained my powerbank at Disney.
It's a great option for multiple people to use as well.
It does a rapid charge to about 90%, for samsung, and apple products.
A fuel rod, on the other hand, doesn't do a rapid charge, and doesn't have the capacity to do a full charge of any smartphone from the last 3 generations.
Here's my recommendation: [link]
Compared to similar products available in retail outlets, Anker destroys the competitors available at Best Buy, Target and Walmart on price, capacity, and the rapid charge.
Yes, it's more expensive than a fuel rod... but it's useful EVERYWHERE, while a fuel rod specifically is only at it's best at a park that uses their products and you can swap all day long.
I’ve got this guy.
I got it on sale around Black Friday last year. Works just as perfectly as it did when I bought it. I’m that person my friends can count on for an extra charge haha. 10/10 would recommend.
Sorry for the confusion. I meant something like this: [link]
That way, it will charge from the portable charger while the car is off, and then the portable charger will charge while the car is on.
I have this Anker 20000mah bank: Anker 20000mAh Portable Charger PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology for iPhone, iPad & Samsung Galaxy & More – Black [link]
It doesn’t have USB-c and things I’ve read said it shouldn’t raise the battery level will plugged in and playing Zelda. But, in my experience it does. It raises it by about 1% every 15-20 minutes while playing Zelda. Much faster with the console asleep. Glad I didn’t drop twice as much on the other one people recommended.
I used this one last year :) it lasted the whole weekend! It's pretty big but it has so much power it was worth it! Just remember to charge the portable battery pack beforehand haha
I keep one of these, an iPhone cable, and a micro-usb cable in my bag
...because everyone has needed their phone charged at some point, and most people don’t want to be with out it.
Edit: fixed link cause /u/YellowishWhite is boss
A portable battery pack will recharge your phone 3-4x times before it's exhausted.
Anker 20,000mAh is around ~$35 and only weighs 0.78lbs. Easily can be thrown into your backpack or bag and takes up little space. It's almost 2018, you need to step your tech game up.
>charges the iPhone 7 almost seven times, the Galaxy S6 five times or the iPad mini 4 twice.
> Gift horses' teeth spring to mind.
Hhaaahaa you're right.
Well to go into more detail, this was gifted casually, along the lines of "here you can have this" after they returned from a vacation and used it to charge their phone while traveling. They probably paid $20 (hopefully)
Thanks for the info on how to test, is it reasonable to assume it's only 5,000 - 10,000 mAH ?
I've been wanted to buy this one that's 20,000 mAh for $45 CAD: [link]
Potentially grab a battery pack if you have enough time (might need same day shipping to make it work).
Something like this can recharge your camera a bunch of times if you have USB charging.
Yep, this is the battery pack I have. The battery is easy to hang if you are inside your tent. Especially if it's a smaller battery. Their straps are actually pretty nice. I also do have their 10ft white Luminoodle but it's not dimmable but works well for larger areas
edit: forgot to mention the bag it comes with. you can stick the battery in there and just hang it inside or hang it off a tree or whatever when not inside your tent
I've done this since day 1 with my Anker Portable Charger
Battery is a beast. Charges in 1 night and can charge my phone + more to full capacity a few times before needing another overnight charge.
HIGHLY Recommend to anyone looking for a GOOD backup battery!! I love it!
You can use a battery pack and ethernet. With Cat6 cable you can do a 100 meter run. This battery should get you about 40 hours of run time. Still way more expensive than the pi itself, but should work.
(the battery estimate is for a zero without wifi, using a usb ethernet adapter, and pi camera)
So you're looking at about 4-5 hours of hiking a day depending on pace which means you'll have a lot of time in camp to charge your electronics via a solar panel. If you want the solar panel way I'd suggest the Goal Zero Nomad 7 combined with the Flip 20 or you can go the cheaper way and order a an Anker external battery such as this Anker PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy and More (Black) [link]
This was the travel pouch that came with Anker's 20k mAh battery pack ([link]). There are probably other similar sized packs that come with things it will fit in.
We gave our clients a Anker portable battery for xmas a few years ago. We branded it with our logo
So the next meetup I go to I would really like to show off my backlit keyboards.Is it safe to plug a keyboard into one of these powerbanks?
I don't want to fry them or anything... but there has to be a way to light them up without lugging my laptop to the meet and having it run for 3 hours.
Lots of good advise here.
Keep in mind Watts are Watts but amps depend on the voltage. A 10 amp 120V appliance is 1200 watts while a 10 amp 12V appliance is 120 Watts.
I recommend you get 2 of these. One for you and one for your gf. $80 total and usable.
I have this one and it charged my Switch while I was playing Zelda once I bought a USB-A to USB-C cable. I think I got it on sale for like $30 about a year ago
I bought an Anker power bank a year ago that can charge my laptop twice.
Anker Powercore 20100
Going by the back side of the box it appears to be a Anker PowerCore 20100. You'll most likely be able to use alternatives that full fill those specs (esp. PowerIQ compatibility and output current).
I have a question, cause I already own a Powerbank from Anker and I would like to ask you, if it also works: [link]
It is a USB-A Powerbank, and It has 5V=4.8A
Thanks for your help!
EDIT: It supports PowerIQ
Buy a portable battery charger. You can carry that (and a usb cord) around with you and let your phone charge off of it. The largest phone battery I'm aware of it about 5000 mAh (though most are in the 3-4k range), so something like this is at least another 4x battery life: [link]
Tenho um Anker, é excelente e não muito caro. Esse que tenho carrega um iPhone 7 vezes ou um iPad mini 4 vezes. Mas demora 24 horas pra carregar.
I wish I could find information on power draw of 1 or 2 phantom powered microphones on the GH5, and for the XLR1 adapter itself. No clue. 10 more days until my XLR1 adapter arrives, though I'm probably not going to fret testing this stuff as I think I'll be ok.
I went for the mentioned Rode NTG4+ shotgun mic with the built in USB chargeable battery (150 hours) that can also be switched to phantom power. This way I have some flexibility if I somehow deplete the microphone battery. It weighs a little more and is slightly longer than the NTG4 but I'd rather deal with those flaws than even be concerned with trying to find out the phantom power draw and having additional battery drain concerns.
Another thought, is I wonder how well attaching a power bank to the panasonic battery charger? I'm not sure if you can charge an active battery over USB-C, but I assume you can charge your offline battery which you can charge in a power bank inside your bags.
I don't have the battery grip but think that if I carry 2-3 charged batteries I should be reasonably covered for what I do. I can always get the grip if it turns into a problem. Sorry if its not terribly helpful that I have rationalized my way around the core questions you are seeking answers to. :)
what is your brightness at. I bought this one recently. [link]
and I am trying to figure out if it will maintain a status quo of charge on a switch wihtout too much screen brightness loss (mine hasn't arrived yet) or if I should return it and buy a different one
It really is mind-bogglingly simple. It was the smartest choice we made on our last trip, hands down! I also got one of these babies and just always had the two in my backpack so I never risked losing internet.
can anyone suggest a specific USB-C to USB cable i can use with a battery pack? The battery pack I have is the Anker powercore 20100 4.8A output. I'm going on a long plane ride this weekend so i'd like to be able to play for as long as i can. Thanks!
I'm not really too knowledgeable when it comes to all of this stuff, but I picked up this powerbank right around when GO came out. [link] Will it have any problems connecting to the Switch? I understand it charges with micro usb but I've used my type-c for my Oneplus 3 and never had a problem getting a good charge from it.
I own this charger bank and was wondering if it would work fine with the switch?
Also I know pretty much nothing about USB C cables, so could you recommend me one to use with that bank and the switch? Thanks
If you can use a tank bag on your bike, you could hide the battery in there to better protect it from the weather. Then run the charging cable to your GPS unit.
EDIT: I use this in my tank bag for phone charging, which I use for GPS:
in addition to chargers:
power bar(s) -- basically, your hospital room will have plugs all over the place, and rather than charging all your devices all over the room, get a bar.
power bank -- not specifically this one, but something like it... if you're using anything electronic that can be charged via usb, it'll run low on power, and you can shove that in your pocket and not be tethered to an outlet
power banks are nice and anker makes great ones. It depends on the size capcity you want. We don't know what sized battery is in the switch yet so tis hard to know how much tehse can charge.
However the power core 20100 is now smaller. It can charge an ipad air 2 1.5 times
They have them in all sizes and shapes . I wouldn't go to high in costs. $20-$40 is what I would spend. Also you may want to look into 2 smaller batteries instead of one larger one . The one I linked you too will take 10 hours to charge. So it may be a good idea to have 2 and alternate the stress on them and allow for slower charging. Heck you may want to get a 20,000 mah battery pack like I listed and something like a 10,000mah or 8,000 mah . They would be smaller and easier to carry. They wouldn't charge the switch as much but for shorter trips it could be better. Then on really long trips you can take both
Thanks, I'll check that out.
Question - Regarding the wattage. I believe I will need 36 Watts since each meter pulls 18. Would a power bank give me enough power?
I looked at this power bank as an example.
Each port supplies 2.4 amps, assuming I'm only using one, whit would only provide 12 Watts. I have to be missing something or not understanding. Can you help me out?
Exactly. If you focus on running on time and efficient buses you won't need a USB port because you won't be on the bus long enough to use it.
Also by now I just assume we all have one of these.
Can they run off the power of a rechargeable battery like this?
Anker PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy and More (Black) [link]
It doesn't matter. If you assume the device has something like a 10k mAh battery (which would be very generous considering the size), this would triple the capacity (and battery life for whatever usage pattern):
Specifically look for ones that promise a certain current output.
I drove two separate strings of 144+16 RGB pixels from this bad boy for several hours.
There is virtually no reason to run things at full current, they're blindingly bright in most cases. I wrote my code so it was easy to tune the final brightness from a potentiometer.
You really only need to worry about separate power tie-ins every couple meters of pixels. If you had one string going 4 meters long, then tie the +5VDC and GND in at the middle and both ends.
buy a Anker portable charger best thing I ever did, you can charge your surface while its in your backpack. The Anker battery I have can charge my surface four times to full.
Instead of directly charging your phone, have you considered charging an external battery instead? I carry one of these everywhere. At full charge, it can fully recharge my phone several times.
Yeah, it's a hell lot cheaper too.
That one lasts for like a week for me on typical usage.
I have some rather thick bag, where the touchscreen doesn't respond, when the phone is in it. It's a meshed cloth, so you can still see, if the display is powered on.
It's the bag that came with this powerbank: [link]
Forms a nice little bundle with a perfect fit in your pocket.
This one looks pretty nice, but that price is a little high. Hey, but it's not like it couldn't be used for other things also. looks like a good investment.
its this one:
i can definitely recommend it! charges 2 phones with ease and got enough power to charge them multiple times aswell
I just bought this a few weeks ago, because I've been going on lots of camping trips this summer. It works pretty well, it might be a little much if you just want one recharge on a long day. And this sucker is heavy as you might imagine something that's about the size of 8 regular batteries. The fast charging seems to be as fast as the OEM charger and I believe I got about 5-6 full charges plus a few half charges. The biggest issue I see with this thing if you're going to use it often is that it doesn't come with a charger and my 2 amp charger was taking forever to charge. Luckily I have a 3 amp charger that seems to charge it within about 12 hours.
Is your Google broken :p

As others mentioned, better stick to quality name brands that will back up their product.
Anker has a 20 000 Mah battery for 42.99$ with usb-C (4.8 A):
You can't go wrong with Ravpower or Anker
There's absolutely 0 item specifications on the page...

For nearly the same price you can just buy this: [link]
Which can charge an i6s/s7 5-6 times, and donate 0.40c to a charity at the same time.
Hmm, well a portable charger like this one (I just picked the first one I saw, though I've worked with Anker before for giveaways on my YouTube channel and they make good products) is a must have. If I find one of these companies that I can buy stock in I will cause the must be selling like crazy about now. As far as network and gps , I don't have much advice as it's device specific. I can say if you're in an area with wifi networks around that your phone will try to ping to, just turn wifi off cause that's a sure fire way to make the game lag/crash.
If you have Amazon Prime, this is a really good deal today.
$27 for a 20,000 mAh battery.
Amazon's got great prices. I personally went a little extra and paid $40 for an Anker 20,100mAh. Though, you can easily find a 10,000mAh one for $20.
edit: I was talking about USD though. Here's the Amazon Canada link for the one I got. [link]
Anker is the best charging brand in America
40$ for a 9000 battery is kinda expensive, I just got one for same cost for 20000 mah battery.
This is one I plan on getting [link]
Or any other PowerBar, but has to have at least 10000 mah. A normal phone battery is between 1500-3000 mah
It'll be fine on light use, but it has much less capacity (3.4Ah vs. 20Ah = 5.8x more power stored in the 20100) and charges much slower (1A vs. 2.4A -> lipstick-sized charges at about 40% the max speed) than the 20100 that's featured as Amazon's Deal of the Day):
There was a sale for Amazon prime yesterday, $30 for a 20,000 mah battery pack (60% off). Picked one up myself, unsure if it's still going on. Will check when I get to my computer.
Edit: Here it is. Seems the sale price has gone up but it's still pretty reasonable (40% off).
I have also seen this one that people like. Do you have it, and if so how long have you had it and do you like? What rating would you give it out of 10 being the highest and 0 being the lowest. Also would it be easily portable and would I be able to carry it in my pocket?
"This one" It can keep you charged for hours
I bought an Anker 20000mAh. It's kind of ridiculous. Was PoGo-ing for around 8 hours on Saturday and for 7 of those hours was plugged into the battery pack. Got home with 100% phone battery and 75% on the battery pack.
E: Oh, and I also bought some new compression shorts.
With this, you can be that guy walking around charging yours and your friends phones.
I have recently bought this power bank:
I really like it, it's always convenient to have around and it's not too bulky. It can charge my iPhone 6 around 7 times. I've had it for about a month and I recommend it to anyone looking to buy a power bank.
I would honestly spend $10 more and get this anker one. link Been using 2 of these since I started playing ingress and they have been perfect. Its not insanely thin but its thin and light enough to where I can put it in my pocket and just forget about it until I need it.
Anker is a really good brand and everyone I know has never had a problem with one of their products. They aren't one of those chinese companies that will just leave you fucked if it breaks. Dropped one of mine once and anker was great about helping me out
Also, the deal of the day has this one if you aren't in a hurry! It is much larger, though. You may want to hold this one in a bag.
Something worth mentioning is that because of the high RAM usage, as soon as you open another app, Pokémon GO will get closed and you will have to reopen it again. This has been my biggest issue so far. Other than that, battery issues are the same for every other phone. Got this charger (no referral) [link] @$24 deal of the day and it even does "charge rapidly"
I got this monster 20,000mAh for 30$ (now $40) 4k reviews at 4.5 stars. I cant justify anything the sprint post in this thread is offering when compared to this beast even if its on sale only for a short while. I think the highest morphie offers is 12,000mAh
I have an Anker 20,000mAh and it was about $40.
I have successfully kept my S5 Active alive for a whole week with it on a cross country trip. The Anker was fully charged before I left and never recharged during the trip.
Anker has cheaper models with less capacity.
I agree, I'll only be getting more Pokemon flair than the plus bracelet if they have PvP/Trading implemented with the initial release. If anyone finds a minimalist shirt/light jacket let me know.
Silphroad patch sewn onto my camelback pack,
Rollerblades (unless I'm in a downtown area)
I see this one for $40, and a bunch of other options. Will this charger work?
EDIT: Now that I look at it, people say it wont have the power
I found this Anker on Amazon.ca with 20100 mAh. Looks really good. It has two outputs, so one for the Pi, and I would like to power a monitor with the other one. Any idea how I might power a small monitor with something like this?
Is anyone else intelligent enough to just use those portable anker battery packs like this? You set it on the couch or table next to you and you literally have endless amounts of power and you retain as much wireless as you need.
I really like anker products. Here is a 20k mah pack but they make all different sizes.
[Most Compact 20000mAh Portable Charger] Anker PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with Most Powerful 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy and More (Black) [link]
rei just had the garmin etrex 30x with 100k US topo bundle for $199 but i'd just bought the etrex 20x, that was a killer deal and worth looking out for if it ever comes around again. My main concern while shopping for a gps (and all electronics i take with me) was the ability to either charge or power via USB. garmin handhelds can power via usb so having large mAh battery backup like this i snagged from amazon for $26 bucks is pretty epic. could go weeks with phone, navigation, music and camera in the wilderness before a recharge :)
Or you can get a portable power bank and stash it where your coworkers can't get to it. Then take it home to charge it when it runs low.
You are showing a different model. The one you are showing is an older model that doesn’t have usb c PD.
In Amazon US that older model is also $49
The newer model is this one:
You can also check the price history in pages like camelcamelcamel to see that the price drop is real:
The Anker 20100 takes the pressure of the headset off my cheeks by balancing out the weight. It has enough power to charge the Quest 5.5 times. I ordered a 90° up/down USB C cable which I'll shorten later -- I couldn't find anything the right size.
On-Ear Koss PortaPro Headphones:
I used the same drivers as the Rift CV1 which sound fantastic compared to the headstrap speakers. I tore up an old earbud cable and soldered the wires to replacement drivers. I discovered that headphone wires are coated in acrylic and wrapped around a nylon cord (for tensile strength, I'd assume). Cut the cord and soak the exposed wires in acetone to prep them for soldering.
Magnetic Lens Adapters:
These lenses were originally made by VR Lens Lab for the Rift CV1. I adapted them to the Quest and made them magnetic to swap with a Valve Index.
Silicone Fasegasket Cover:

I have this one, same brand and capacity, but with 2 USB ports. It's a must for travel.
This could work short term.
It is this one: [link]
Not sure I had heard about this before. How do I know if it is power delivery? I have https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X5RV14Y/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have a travel battery pack like this that I use on flights.
Generally yeah, but I also have a pixel and an anker powercore so I have usbc to standard outlet too.. This thing is a godsend.
This one is slightly longer than what you said but is double the power of the one you have now (20,000mAh):
Or this one fits in the dimensions you said and is the same power capacity as the one you have now (10,000mAh)
But these are literally just two of them. There are ALOT of them. I would recommend Anker but just get on amazon and search for "Anker Portable Charger" and find one that has the power capacity you want, the physical size you want and in your price range. Any Anker will be fine just make sure to say above 10,000mAh or so as we talked about.
Edit: Also the 20,000mAh one I linked has two usb ports. That is a MUST for me to have 2-3 ports on it so I can power my Stratux and iPad. Just something to keep in mind to look out for when looking at them.
Buy an anger powerbank (not slim ones ) there will be LG or Panasonic cells inside .
awesome company [link]
This and this are two power banks by Anker that are officially licensed by Nintendo.
These are a rip-off compared to Anker's other 20100mAh and 13400mAh power banks that are cheaper, just without the Nintendo branding. We haven't heard anything bad happen with 3rd party power banks, only with 3rd party switch docks, so I would recommend just getting either one of the non branded Anker power banks.
Power bank or car charger?
Will this charger work for my switch? I have this from a while ago and we recently just got the switch.
From reading, i know more people got the PowerCore+, but would this be OK? i assume i just need a good USB to type C cable?
Something like this is pretty fantastic for charging things when you don’t want/need to carry the laptop as well.
But if $90 is waaaay too steep, here is the same battery without USB-C, or the branding for half the price
Lennyflank's article is great.
If you do want to install an alternator relay and auxiliary battery for lights and things, which is the cheapest option to add more power, check this out:
Keep in mind that you can also buy portable batteries that you charge while driving and then use to charge your phones (something like this)
Combine that with some solar lanterns and you might not need an extra battery at all! A lot of budget dwellers use these
This is the exact battery that comes with the TPCast: [link]
Straight from Amazon, this is the one I use. $41
Anker 20100mAh Portable Charger PowerCore 20100 [link]
I've never had a powerbank, but I need one for my Galaxy S8, which one of these would you guys recommend?
Anker20100mAh, which has USB-C
What type of USB cable do i need for this power bank? It's on sale for $31 and heard it's pretty good for the switch. Do I need USB 3.0 to USB C or something?
What are "small devices".
A pair of these for $60 goes pretty far if you're just talking cell phones, cameras, tablets.
>I keep one of these, an iPhone cable, and a micro-usb cable in my bag
Also a USB-C one: [link]
Not bashing the Samsung one, just wanted to provide an alternative that had a higher capacity and similar price.
I have been planning a build like this but with a larger lunchbox and larger screen to place it inside the lid so it looks more like a laptop. do you know of a good screen option and what i would need to go with the screen and connect everything properly? also the battery mentioned is sold out but I found this one here and thought it might work well
What do you think?
I found a larger lunchbox here
This one is 9x7.5 and it comes out to 11.5-11.7 inches diagonal measurement so i want to try and fill most of that space up.
How does the power pack work, does it just plug into the ac jack on the pi and then you plug the battery into the wall to charge? I'm new to this stuff.
Power pack with an USB fan. $55 totally worth it.
Sure thing, this is the one I got: [link]
Can I go with this one? It's cheaper, same mAh. I need to buy several, so I don't need any bells or whistles, just need value. Thanks
Ill second to say I have that same cable and the Anker 20000 [link]
and it will charge the switch even while playing BOTW, as long as brightness is under 80%.
two five-inch dildos + some duct tape
or, like, put it towards this beast for charging your phone on the go so you can browse /r/me_irl for longer
I have this guy. Bigger than the Razers power bank [link]
This helped a lot thank you! I'm thinking this will be the charger I get, your thoughts? [link]
Thanks! Is this one it?
Edit: It's this one
I bought it in November on sale (50% off on Amazon). I have been using it daily for Pokemon Go, without issue.
Also, it's on sale right now: [link]
The items you linked are cheap, but won't really work for you, they could, but you will have to tinker and take a chance with those Items. The power bank you linked does not have enough amps output to run the Rasperry Pi correctly and the LCD might not work for the Retropie OS. I would go with something that can output enough amps for the Raspberry Pi to run without any issues, it needs 2.5Amps. If not, the Pi will be complaining about power or being throttled because it does not have enough power to run the Raspberry Pi without any issues, specially if you are running Retropie and doing emulation:
Anker PowerCore 20100 with has 20,000mah and outputs 2.4Amps per port
Anker PowerCore II 20000 Portable Charger it has 20000mah and outputs 3Amps per port
As for the screen, I would go with something more compatible. The screen you linked only works a a custom built Raspian OS. Not sure it would work on the Retropie OS/img. It does come with drivers which you might need to compile within your Retropie OS to get the screen to work. I would go with a screen that can run off of the display port or HDMI port of the Raspberry Pi natively. Check out the specs and the compatability of the screen to the OS you will be using it for. One good example of a really compatible A LCD is the official 7" LCD/touchscreen that plugs into the display port and works with most all OS' on the Pi. You only need to change one small setting in the boot/config file for it to boot with the LCD screen attached. I think there is an official 5" LCD available, but I could be wrong. Looks like you want to use a smaller screen, check the Retropie forums or check instructables.com to see what other people have used.
Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display [link]
This is the battery they send you, so you can easily get a replacement for under $45. I'm sure there are higher capacity versions that will be compatible as well.
I have this anker batter and it charges just fine. i almost exclusively charge my vita from my power bank because it's more convenient that plugging it in at home.
according to the details it say 6.3 charges for a Iphone 6s
Will this work with my switch?
Its a great power bank.
I've got a really good powerbank. It's this one
Will this work with my switch, still thanks for responding .
I just took this to Iceland last month on my carry on with no problems at all.
Have had a great Anker, a great PowerGorilla, and I'm currently rocking a LifePower. Anker is a good choice for your requirements. This: [link] is currently on sale if you're US based.
Will this charger do fine when charging the Switch?
Anker 20000mAh Portable Charger PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology
are you using this one? [link]
I have this One that I use for my phone on work days. Works really well for my phone. Not quite sure how to tell if it is USB-C safe though.
Works sending me out of the country next weekend, will this charger work with the switch ??
Just the standard PowerCore 20100
Is this a good portable battery? [link]
That one looks like it's got more amps than needed. Switch wants (15v) and the suggestion I've seen is 5v @ 3a is the max. I have this one and it works great to maintain the battery. More info about this stuff > [link]
As for SD you're looking for "Micro SDXC UHS-I Class 10" - this is what I have [link] as well as [link] and [link]
Does anyone know if this will charge the switch while playing it (or at least stop it from draining the battery) [link]
Is that something that would be listed in the tech specs of a product? I'm not familiar with "PD" so I don't know what to look for. e.g. this product
This is the exact one I bought! Got it on a sale for $25!
Anker make really high quality portable battery products. Try this one :
Amazon also has it for $39.99 (might be a different model but has the same 20100 #)
You are absolutely right, I left out a 0! 20K not 2K
Wrong, mine is not it. [link]
Homework was done before purchase SEVERAL months ago... excellent bank! A bit on the heavier side but 9/10!
The Zenfone 3 Max would be worth considering as well - here is a comparison of the two. Smaller, lower-res screen should save some power, but it is LCD instead of AMOLED on the Blu, so it might be a wash. Smaller battery on the Zenfone too...
Would you consider buying an external battery pack for the phone? Then you can get whatever phone you want without the hard battery restriction, then add a 20,000mAh external battery for $40 or less.
I don't think I need quite that much capacity, but I may go for it since it's only a few extra dollars.
Does it come with an adapter to charge the bank?
I ended up going with this one [link]
But out of paranoia, I may end up buying another one too haha
I use this one it is a bit weighty, but can charge my phone from dead to full like 7 times.
At the moment, no, I suggest getting this, yes it's a battery pack, but it's small and holds a tone of charges
my phone battery never dies
I'm currently tossing up between the Powercore 20100 (link) and the Powercore 20000 (link) (same thing, but QuickCharge 3.0). Is there any reason I shouldn't get the 20000?
I used a phone powerbank for my Raspberry Pi laptop project. It's capacity is quite decent. It can power my overclocked RPi 2 and the 10 inch screen and two speakers up to 9 hours. Unfortunately the output will shut off while the battery is being charged (This feature is caled pass-through charging). Calculating the runtime of the battery is simple. You only need to know how much power the components consume and the capacity of your battery.
May or may not be useful to you, Harbor freight has these fold-able solar panels that charge via usb @ 5V. I have one of these and they work pretty well. I wouldn't use it to directly charge my phone though unless it was an emergency. Rather I use it to charge battery banks. Mostly due to paranoia and the desire to protect my phone from fluctuating voltage. I'd prefer to kill that cheap battery bank if there's an issue.
Something like this would keep your phone powered for a day or three:
Or they make little chargers that use 2 AA batteries. Fair warning they get hotter than hell if you use them for a long time.
Honestly, In my experience going for cheap power banks are not a good idea. If I where you I would invest into something like this it will only cost you 50$ and last you a life time, Alternitivly you get get something less exspenive however it won't be as good... if you choose that route I would suggest this anything less wouldn't really be investing into for long term use.
Bought this one, didnt received yet [link]
Which one do you have / recommend? Not sure if I should get the 20000 or pay another $10USD for the 26800 (which may be annoying to carry).
I bought this one.
I bought an Anker charger. It has been great.
Is this the one you have?
How long have you had it for and how do you like it?
and is it able to fit in your pocket?
Yeah, I will link it, one sec.
Edit: I use this one, and it's been great.
Something like this?
was out all day, let people charge off me, and didn't even use up half
I just got the Anker 20000mah portable charger. That one holds around 7 full charges.
Boyfriend and I are sharing this with our squad. With two people charging off it the entire time we're out (~5-7 hours) it barely dips below half.
this one is 20000mAh and it charges as it normally would with a wall charger, I highly recommend it
Anker 20000mAh Portable Charger PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacit... [link]
Why not this one? [link]
This is the one I use. It's fantastic.
Anker, Anker, Anker
I didnt get anything! As the decently priced ones were all gone. I am going to pick up an anker amazon though, heard excellent reviews
Portable Battery Charger - playing will destroy your battery. Tons available at all price points.
Insulated water bottle, jerky or another travel friendly snack.
it seems the same, try this one
Amazon Prime Deal of the Day (currently $26.99)
Pick up a battery charger for it. Anker makes a wonderful one that's 40 bucks on Amazon right now. [link]
Yeah for sure, that looks like a solid deal. It is one of their "older" products but I'm sure it's great.
I got this one ([link]) a week ago for 27, but it's 40 now. I'd highly recommend it, but it's a little bit bigger.
Another one to look at would be this one ([link]) for a little bit smaller.
Ultimately, they're all going to be a high-quality product, just different shapes and capacities. I would look to see if the one you linked has quick charging or not though, I'm not sure when they incorporated that.
this is the one I've ordered
yea I was thinking about this Anker one [link]
[link] for 5 bucks more you can have triple battery life
Anker's Powercore 20100 is pretty great. I use it all the time and always comes in handy.
Check that one out. Based on the dimensions on the page, it is smaller than the tronsmart.
Using this. No USB C. But works amazingly. Charges phone about 5-6 times. Was on sale last week for $27 so I jumped on it.
Thanks to having a removable battery, I have a great set up. I have a second battery, a battery cradle, and a power bank.
When my phone's battery runs out, I swap out for the second one, putting me back at 100%. Then, I put the empty battery in the cradle, connect the cradle to the power bank, and I have 100% on my phone while the empty battery is charging in my backpack.
I can continue this cycle and play Pokemon Go for well over a day straight.
I picked this up [link]
The Anker 20000mAh one, last week it was on sale for 27 bucks.
what about this one?
its a big one?or i can sit with one near bench?
Can anyone tell me why there's a difference of price ranges for these Anker chargers? They all look similar but costs differently.
This one is $44
This one is $79
Then this one is $65.
Can anyone explain?
I just ordered the same thing. It's on sale on Amazon right now too. [link]
Anker all day, every day. I love my 20K mAh beast.
You could use a powerbank like I did with mine ([link]). I used the Anker PowerCore 20100 ([link]) it can output up to 2.4A per port (2 ports) and has quite high capacity. It powers my RPi Laptop depending on what I'm doing for 8-12 hours. The only disadvantages are that the ouput can't be used while charging and it takes about 8 hours to fully charge it. I'm using an 10.1 inch display.
I just received my [link] and I'm loving it. I also bought [link] . The battery charges my phone about 1% per minute, which is ridiculous, and can easily charge it 6+ times before I need to plug it into the wall again. It does take about a night to recharge the battery from empty, but that's because it's capacity is ridiculous lol.
Had no issues bringing in a portable charger. I had this in my camelbak.
Even in retail, $10 is way overpriced for an unprotected ncr18650b. Multiple online retailers sell genuine for less than $10 for a pair of 2. I have bought many panasonic cells from fasttech, and all have tested very close to their specifications. They have fallen in price a lot in the past few years.
And to add, Anker makes a portable charger using those cells for under $40
Anker 21W solar panel
$95 for top products with insane specs.
This Anker is on sale and has a ludicrous amount of storage. :) [link]
Thank you so much guys. In the end i went with Anker PowerCore 20100. [link]
If you're an Ingress player, you'll be familiar with one of these [link]
And here you go: [link]
50 dollars for the same thing.
For your phone? Me and some others I know have this one. I bring it on 3-4 day camping trips.
Sorry but that is just a blatant rip-off. I'm surprised they tell you what powerbanks they're rebranding, just get one from Amazon, pay about half the price and get proper support directly from Anker in case of problems...
it is literally this but with a Nintendo Logo and $45 more.
That's what I thought. It looks like my current Anker battery. Which I use to charge my Switch
Why? Dude this is literally just a battery. Go out and buy any lithium ion battery pack with a good capacity. You end up with a better product for less.
There use that link and save your money.
Yeah, the first batteries that come up on a Google search for "M18" are 1.5 and 3 AH. Pretty pathetic. For charging an arm you'd do better with something like this, which is 20 AH and cheaper than M18 batteries. Those M18s are designed for high current draw, which isn't needed in a recharging scenario.
I suspect the robotic arm is more of a nice-to-have for her than an absolute necessity. So in the event of a prolonged blackout, she's one-armed.
[link] will this charge my switch? if so what cable do I get?
This is a good alternative. Less capacity, but I use for my switch and my phone all the time.
Battery Pack like this one
here's one 1/2 the price (but 1/2 the power) still very juicy--
I got this one, [link]
It works amazingly. I have gone through 2 ankers. This one is so good at charging my phone. Capacity is fantastic. Smaller than you would think also
Problem solved. Battery for days.
Rook no further, PriceKnight is here!

I found another option for 49.99. It’s here .
Hmm, same one without the Nintendo logo and everything, is on Amazon for 39.99, I have this one and works perfectly.
Anker PowerCore 20100 - Ultra High Capacity Power Bank with 4.8A Output, PowerIQ Technology for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy and More (Black) [link]
Amazon had the exact same charger just without the Nintendo Switch logo on it for $40
So this is the same exact item but $30 cheaper than what OP posted...
So put one of these in your bag and charge your phone/headphones/etc. like fifty times.
