    We know that OPO's battery kicks ***, but still are you willing to buy a battery bank?
    I'm kinda interested on the community's opinion on this one.
    I have my eyes on one 30000 mAh bank, but we'll see :p

    I play Ingress, so I have no choice.. Anker Astro 3E 10,000 MAH battery here. Only need it for longer ops though, unlike with my old phone when I needed it all the time. You can get a good days use out of the OPO's internal battery.

    8-12 hours. But it should keep me safe for minimum 5-8 full charges.

    They are fairly cheap and probably good to keep in your bag so why not

    Ah, don't take my word for reference please. I've read it on the seller's site. The seller was on ebay and I'm not sure how trustworthy they are :)

    PS: You can also plug it into an electrical source and charge the bank like that.
    I mean, if I choose between solar+normal or just normal charging of the bank, solar+normal is more logical imho

    I use this because it has a 12 amp capacity and outputs 2 ah on both usb. I had loads of batteries from several laptops. It only cost me 10 bucks for 2.

    Search for Aili 18650 battery pack on google if interested.
