Nice unit but only 74Wh so it's ok - not as much cap as a traditional 7Ah 12V SLA which is approx 84Wh

^  The SLA is considerably larger and heavier, no?  I haven't ever run one so this is an honest question.

This battery has certainly piqued my interest.

Looks like it won't run an F8 without using the brick.  Unfortunate.

They just added a DC output option on the Pro version only.

Direct DC Output Now Supports 5.5V - 20 V!
Last week we introduced a new Omnicharge Pro upgrade perk. The universal DC Barrel Port can now directly output to charge other devices. We've been refining this functionality & are pleased to announce that the DC Output will now support any voltage between 5.5V to 20V with up to 0.1 accuracy. Users will be able to select their desired voltages which is extremely helpful for DSLR camera users.

Thanks for the link to these! I think I'm going to grab one, mainly for festies, when I need to recharge a few diff kinds of batteries! I could easily charge my VMS 9.6v NIMH Batts AND my 5v USB batts with just this neat lil thing in a pinch at festies, and would be perfect for that use!

IMO, these are the nicest of the newest style, 5v USB-type batteries, that are becoming much nicer/reliable and more prevalent these days! It's the first NICE one that Ive seen that can power just about everything AND with an AC port, without spending considerably MORE $$!!! You can get the customized 5v-20v dedicated DC OUT on the Pro version, and can even decide if you want a normal DC plug or a USB-C plug to charge it! Id just charge mine via USB-C and would be a killer little setup! Another reason why I think this is the nicest one for the $$[even tho Ive never used one], is that it has real-time info about the battery on the OLED screen at all times. VERY useful to know exactly where your battery is status-wise, and how much juice is left! Thanks again for the link 8)

I ordered the Pro version with DC output.  Have been using naztech 15000s that have worked well with various preamps and recorders.  This looks like a nice power addition.
