Hi,

Wondering if there are any Power Banks that will work with the Osmo Action? DJI or Third Party. And are verified to be ok.

Or is there specific features to look for? Or not recommended?

Thanks,
Dragonfyr

I would think most power banks would work.  I don't recall the input specs if they are listed anywhere but since it did not come with a charger - most banks should work.

Hello and good day Dragonfyr. Thank you for reaching out and for the inquiry.  I hope that you will get the best recommendation from our valued DJI Members who uses a power-bank in charging there DJI Osmo Action.  Just a friendly reminder that we do not recommend you to use a 3rd party accessories or devices on your DJI Osmo Action. Actually, there is a  possibility that this accessory will work, however, since it's not yet tested by DJI we cannot guaranteed the reliability of the said accessory when in use. In addition using 3rd party accessories or devices might cause damage or harm on the DJI Osmo Action and can void the warranty as well. Thank you for your understanding and valued support.

I thought that too, but don't want to risk damage, so thought i'd ask here first

Hi there,

Yes, I thought you might say something like that. Really wish DJI would hurry up with stocking more batteries for the Osmo Action. I'd love to take a day driving up the coast, get some time lapse, videos etc, but I can't with only 1 battery Or... DJI could create a power bank...

Could you provide the technical specs of what power adapter should be used?  Amp hours, watts or voltage.  Since the camera did not ship with a charger, we kind of have to guess.   This is in the manual but it is vague and  suggests faster time might be possible.  But I guess a battery bank meeting those specs could potentially work?  But, yes SPARE batteries would be very nice at this time.

Thanks.

"But I guess a battery bank meeting those specs could potentially work?"

I would agree, and mine is working at the moment on 2.1 A output power bank. Battery charge indicator on Mimeo turns green when charging, and clear when power bank disconnected.
With a 2.1 A power bank connection it can supply enough current to operate the device and charge battery if required. This also seems to be the case using the 1A output, although the battery takes longer to charge if camera in use.

I tried the other day using the specific Osmo Action USB cable with the DJI Mavic Pro charger, it worked perfectly. No flashing LED's, it just charged it.  So it must have been the third party usb cable that was the problem.

Just thought i'd add that for you's

I use the Wasbi camera grip and power bank , its rated at 5200MAH, I've used it with my Gopro Hero 6, Osmo Pocket, and now my Osmo Action which has taken a permanent seat on this grip I havent had any issue and would highly recommend it.
