I own two Tascam DR680 (which I paired with a Sound Devices 552, although these days I use a Zoom F4 instead, a better and lighter package!).

Personally I powered my DR680 recorders with this:

Works fantastic! One of these can usually power my recorder for a whole day's shoot. And is very cheap, you can easily have a 2nd at hand as a  back up just in case.

Plus I really like the lights on the side of it, which let you know how much charge is left in it.

Be aware that if you are flying, the airline have a general 100Wh limit on lithium batteries.  A typical 20,000 mAh 5v battery is at the limit.  There is a limited ability to carry on larger batteries.
