Are there any particular aspects of these portable external battery banks I should look for when powering a M2 along with the LoRa radio… I guess also extra output port for a phone or tablet controller if battery gets low in the field option? Something that would last long enough to log data for OPUS / PPP similar to the RS2+?
Are the typical 10000 mah 5V sufficient? I notice some have different amp output??? Are these faster charging or put out more for more devices? 1A, 2.1A, 3A? I dont want to fry the M2 LoRa.
Obviously the more mah capacity, the heavier and bulkier. Don’t want heavy or bulky on rover pole. Would M2 and LoRa radio be fine with 10000 mah, or larger or smaller?
I’ve got two in my M2 bag, both 10000 mah. I’ve never have run one down, even on 5+ hours as static. I haven’t used mine in awhile (6 months) and I just checked both in my M2 hip bag. Both batteries still approx 75% power per the 3 lights.
I like to have both with me, just as you said backup for my phone when I’m +1 mile from the truck.
