Charging battery via Spark, not charger

Hi all.  I got the combo pack and really like the battery charger (my other drone is a P3S, so...), but I'd like to be able to take the Spark and batteries in a backpack with a charging brick and charge the batteries on the go.  Since the combo pack didn't come with the wall charger that plugs into the spark's USB port to charge the battery, I tried other USB chargers and have had no success getting them to charge the battery attached to the spark.

Is there a specification that I need to know for the charger/brick?  And, has anyone every charged via a charging brick?  

Thanks,
Chris

I've used the iPad charger and my booster pack and they both work great?

You honestly cannot beat this power bank, http://amzn.to/2rF9TtP I have a few of them, it will charge a iPhone 6+ around 6 times and will charge the spark 10 times... also it has Qualcomm charging so it is extremely fast.

Thanks.  I'll try to find something that charges it and look at the Aukey.  I have a 20000mAH, but I forget what the output is.  

Thanks,

No worries, this one http://amzn.to/2rF9TtP outputs at 2 Amp + so about 45 mins to charge the Spark up to 100% again,
or something more compact http://amzn.to/2rFyoXw This is the highest capacity for the size and 2Amp output, I have it and used it to charge up the Mavic controller when out

It must just be the min amp output necessary + a compatible cable.  I changes some stuff around and the combination of cable that came with it, and one of the two ports on my power brick worked... so, I'm a happy camper.  Thanks all.
