Powerbank
« on: February 22, 2018, 06:44:01 AM »
Hi,

I need to know if anyone of your guys are using a powerbank with a coupler or some other solution to power your 5d mark iii.
All my batteries have cracked (probably due to overheating) so I am looking for another alternative than using batteries. Any suggestions?  :)

Hello ibrahim,

   Sorry to hear about your batteries. Bummer. Here is a link to a product I use with my Canon 7D, and T3i: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1100255-REG/lanparte_pb_600_e6_e6_portable_battery_with.html

   I have had no issues in the past two years of using these power banks. The product in the link provided works for the 5d Mark III as well :)

I’m using an adapter like this on my EOS M3. I haven’t checked on my 6D

But you need a least a Powerbank with 2.5 – 3A output.
Another problem of Powerbanks: They switch immediately off. You have to take care about it.

Hey ibrahim,

    You're welcome! I've read mixed reviews of that product. Might be worth a try, but might be hard to return since I believe the seller is in China.

Thanks guys.

That's a lightweight and interesting solution c_joerg.
How many hours can you record on your 6d with the ML?

Where can I buy the components. Have you built it yourself or can it be bought as a whole?

Hey ibrahim,

   I forgot to mention something. With the powerbank, you can take the leather cover off (has a clip, good for tripod use, but not run and gun), and attach industrial strength velcro to the bottom. Then put industrial strength velcro on a cheese plate. All you need is a 1/4" male thread to cold shoe adapter, and now you can add this to the top of your DSLR. If you want to use a mic, you can add an additional accessory. I'll link these below.

Hope this helps!

The 6d is new. I haven’t used on my 6D until now.
On my Canon G1x it works more than 6 hours. With normal 1.5V AA Batteries it work works even longer. I have also used 2 of them parallel.

Where can I buy the components.

Not sure if this link helps you

Another option is this

Have you built it yourself or can it be bought as a whole?
I only connect the cables from dummy batteries with the AA holder.

For me, the perfect solution to this problem was a printout of the finished housing layout and the purchase of 40 batteries at 2500 mAh each. Well and their connections.

@c_joerg I am also using one of those cheap CA-PS700 replacements with USB connector and an original Canon DR-E17 coupler.

It's working fine but I can't attest that it needs 2.5 – 3A as input. With my M5 it's even working from a USB 3.0 Port of my PC, which delivers 0.9A max. My USB amp meter says the camera is drawing about 0.6A.

Another idea for a power supply. A powerbank with quick charge. With 2 diodes and 2 resistors you have to generate directly 9V / 2A. With that, the cameras are getting along well.
