I have a RAVPower 23000 that I like. It has two smart USB ports which come in  handy. Ted made me a hirose cable.

I've owned my 722 since launch. I was on the pre-order waiting list. I've only ever used these: https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Battery-NP-F950-NP-F960-Handycam/dp/B000TKP858

Other than the age-related issues common with all Li-ion batteries, I've never had an issue with these. For recording all day at a festival I bring 3  of them (and a 4th as redundancy) and run with meters at full brightness during the day, p48 on and writing to the CF only. I could probably make it on 2 but I don't like to discharge them too deeply as that shortens the longevity of the battery.

BTW, welcome to team SD 7xx. You're going to love this deck, especially the metering. And other than user error, I've never had a recording get hosed; not even once. The thing is bulletproof.

Li-Ion NP1 style batteries, battery cup with hirose connector and dual charger would be a good external power solution for SD 7xx.
They are a nice size for most audio bags and the form factor has proven itself through the years and various battery chemistries. They are readily available so there's little worry about them being discontinued when it's time for replacing them but they can be re-cell'd too if you want to go that route. On top of that there are lots of accessories available for them including distribution boxes as your equipment grows ;)  They're not cheap though but are a professional solution worth investing in just like your recorder.

These are really good batteries, and are very dependable.

I used a Sony L series battery dummy cell wired to some 7.2v NIMH RC batteries back when I ran a 722 from 2006>2011, because those L/M series batteries would always just up and die on me back then :( So I used they MUCH more reliable 7.2v NIMH RC batteries instead, with just a dummy cell battery from eBay ;)
