    Which specifications should I look for on a portable battery that would be able to charge my CR?

    thank you!

    Hi Aleguida, welcome to the forum.

    If it's not too much trouble, would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/

    As to your question, any battery that is capable of providing USB power -- so 5 volts at 1.5 to 2.0 amps. The Movi expects to be connected just to a simple USB port.

    Thanks
    Andy

    For example if I use a Anker PowerCore Lite 20000 (Capacity: 20000mAh/74Wh / USB-C/Micro USB Input: 5V=2A / Output: 5V=4.8A (3A Max Per Port) is it ok? How many charges can I expect from the external battery?

    thank you!

    Hi Allesandro: That should work fine -- it just presents to the Movi as though it was a USB socket.

    I don't really know how many charges you're likely to get, but with 20 Amp hours, I would think "quite a few" -- it really depends on how discharged the Movi's batteries are when you recharge.

    Cheers
    Andy
