Battery Charging from USB Power Bank?

Recommended Posts

that's pretty neat. looks like it only requires 800 mA for rapid charge. i have some old school 800 mA and 1.0 A power banks collecting dust that i could put to use.

Patona/Wasabi have some of the super handy traveler battery chargers, comes with micro and regular USB ports, AC port and cable for both AC and car ligther.

 

I have been using my old powerbank (5200 mah) as my 4 and 5th battery. If I know beforehand that I will have a super long shooting day, I take out the 20000 mah Limefuel.

i usually see Patona in Europe and Canada. in the States, we only get the Wasabi offerings. are you saying Patona/Wasabi have chargers with the micro/USB port? i'm tried to find one from Wasabi to see if they have one with a 2 batt combo.

The Patona has them for certain, I have one in my possession. As for the Wasabi, I was told on another forum that they are cousin/sister/whatever company of Wasabi, thus should have the same things but just re-branded.

 

BUT upon closer inspection from what I can see on Amazon.com, it doesn't look like the Wasabi chargers have the extra ports like you can see here, it's on the 4th picture.

 

In short, I can confirm that Patona has the traveler friendly charger but Wasabi doesn't seems to.

I have one of these that I got from Amazon that I use when I'm travelling. I've found it reliable enough that I don't bother with the standard charger when I'm travelling. I have charged batteries in it using an Anker power pack (I have the E4).

The battery charger that I have used is bestek 300w power inverter. Connecting this inverter with my car cigarette lighter charger outlet, I have acquired how to charge camera battery in safe way. Since I just know how to use, but don't know more details about this tool. Maybe you can search bestemall on Google to catch more information about this inverter. Wish this point is helpful to you.
