    Hi all,

    I'll be starting a gig soon as AC on a TV drama, where the DP will be making a lot of use of the PS controller through the mimic on his Movi pro.

    My question is, as the controller uses the usb socket, what options are out there for also connecting a charge bank / external battery at the same time? I think it will be impractical to constantly have a charger on hand for when the ps controller isn't being used.

    Thanks

    Duncan

    I use a USB battery velcroed to the side of the Mimic. You have to swap to the battery every once in a while to charge, which is a pain, but that’s what you get for a cheap controller option. Otherwise use a Movi Controller or a Spektrum dx8.
