Battery Charging from USB Power Bank?


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

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.

I use a OAproda (Don’t see it anymore on Amazon) with my GoalZero panel when I’m out for extended periods. I also have a Anker battery pack that works well with it. It does work connected to my solar panel, daisy chaining two work better. The best method is changing the backup batteries the use them with the USB battery charging your USB Fujifilm battery changer at bedtime, keep it warm in your sleeping bag with you to get a fully changed, cold interferes with changing.

Anyone use something to charge their batteries with a USB power bank?

 

I'm looking at this: http://www.amazon.com/OAproda%C2%AE-NP-W126-Portable-FUJIFILM-Camcorder/dp/B00QLHDMX8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1435683932&sr=8-4&keywords=usb+np-w126

 

Well, the worst that can happen is I waste $9 and maybe a $10 battery.

you can use any powerbank with "USB C-PD output" to run the camera or charge the battery in-camera . hope this helps . have a nice day !

    • I wish I could help. I have read the charts on what these settings save and what it doesn’t....have never been 100% comfortable using.  But never had that particular issue.
    • I setup my C1 for bird and action settings. ISO3 (shutter 2000, 125-6400ISO, AF zone, bird). If I'm on a single ISO setting and select C1 it will not go to the AUTO3 setting. If I'm currently on auto iso1 or iso2 it will go to iso3 but the top iso value displays as 1600 even though I set it to 6400 max)? I basically still need to go in and manually change to auto3 to get it to work. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    • LCD Problem on my X-H2. Camera is 3 months old.  Just this week, LCD was not going on, or it was on then went off, while opening it and turning it outward. Eventually it would come back on after a minute or two. Doesn't happen all the time, but did happen a few times while hiking in cool weather. Has anyone else experienced this yet? I have the settings so that the LCD goes off when I'm using the EVF and I know where that sensor is, so its not user error. I know there have been issues with Fujifilm LCDs in the past, so I'm concerned that this will get worse and I'll have to give it up for a month while its repaired. I'm still within the Amazon return window so considering sending it back for a replacement. All comments and suggestions are welcome and thanks!

    • There are several ways to fix that. Try this, go to System Preferences, click Security & Privacy, then select the Privacy tab. Scroll down and click Full Disk Access. There should be a little + symbol somewhere, click on it and you should be given a dialog box to find the app you want to add. Select it. Now, along the way you will have to enter your password (assuming you have permission to add / delete applications, etc.) to give permission for these thing to happen. An easier way is to delete the app, empty the trash, restart the machine, and reinstall the application, only this time give it the needed permissions as you are going. As far as the tiff files go, it depends on the converter you are using. If they export in 16 bit tiff format, (do not use eight bit) you should have the data but when you open it in your editor, it will have the selected profiles applied as a starting point. ie your white balance, film simulation, etc. etc. because that information is embedded in the tiff from the raf, and used by the editor as a starting point to display the image. Some manufacturers' raw files are actually tiff files with a little proprietary info added in, I have read that Adobe's DNG format is just that as well, a tiff file with a few other things tossed in for good measure. Fujjifilm is now using tiff as a storage option along with .jpg and .raf in their latest camera releases. It is a good format.
