Power is always an issue for photographers and filmmakers when you’re away from plug sockets for extended periods of time. And I’m a big fan of portable power for my gear and to recharge stuff. But this one really takes the cake. It’s billed as “portable” power bank, but it doesn’t exactly fit in your pocket… Or even a camera bag. An entire camera bag. Without any camera gear in it. But this thing has huge a storage capacity to match its huge size.
It was built by Chinese tinkerer Handy Geng, who decided to go a little over the top after seeing that his friend’s USB power banks were bigger than his. So, he set about making his own DIY 27,000,000mAh power bank. Yes, you read that right, a 27 million mAh – or 27,000Ah or 27kAh – “portable” power bank. Potentially enough to charge a camera battery thousands of times over!
