My currently preferred solution for powering my camera is a power bank with quick charge and a quick charge USB tester. This tester then simulates a quick charge device.

I then operate the camera directly with the 9V and have an output power of 18W (9V / 2A). Alternatively, I could also operate a slider with 12V and a maximum of 1.5A.



Since there is only one DC / DC converter in this chain, the total power loss is about 15% lower. There is also no influence on two DC / DC converters.



Powerbanks with QC are available from € 10, which is significantly cheaper than powerbanks with 9V or 12V output.

Similar testers are also available for PD (Power Delivery). With the testers you should make sure that there is a slide switch and no buttons. Those with the buttons must be reprogrammed after each switch on.

I have now bought a trigger for Quick Charge 3.

Work really well. They remember the last setting and you can use Quick Charge 3 to set the voltage in 0.2V steps.
