    Akpe when I have needed a small usb power cable I have had to make my own. Take a cable that fits, cut it and wire to the appropriate battery/connector. I don't think you will find something commercially available.

    Hi Akpe, can you just use an external USB battery to power it? Something like this:

    http://www.amazon.com/iXCC-3400mAH-Power-Bank-Portable/dp/B0128FACBQ/

    Otherwise you're going to need a cable (and a JST splitter, to power your Movi and the transmitter) that has a 5V voltage regulator on it.

    B&H sells a cable like that, but it goes from P-Tap. I suppose you could change the P-Tap connector to JST, but it's a lot of cable to clean up and will cost much more.

    Just remember that when you completely drain a M5 LiPo it might never charge again.
    When powering the MoVI there is a safety catch to shut the MoVI down before the battery is dead.

    I have done the portable Anker batteries. its not as ideal because it adds weight but it works. If you are using SmallHD monitors, they do 5v out of the USB port, so you can just connect a usb cable (with the right ends) up to the Aries. It will require the small end (i can't remember the name) on both sides.
