If you're shooting video or timelapses you probably have a slew of batteries on hand in order to keep up with your camera's "hunger". This tutorial will show you how to use a USB battery which has 5 to 8 times as capacity to power your camera for hours on end.
- Dummy Battery
- 5v to 9v USB Converter
- 5.5 to 1.7mm adapter
- SmallRig Cheese Plate
- 1/4-20 to Cold Shoe Adapter
- Self-Adhesive Velcro
The Anker is roughly 8 times the capacity of a standard G85/G7 battery and about 5 times the capacity of a Nikon EN-EL15 battery. In my initial tests I was able to run my G85 4 hours and the Anker Battery depleted about 50%. I was getting around an hour and a half with the OEM batteries.
