http://www.amazon.com/Anker-10000mAh-Multi-Voltage-Camcoders-Recorders/dp/B005NGKR54/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header  - Anybody ever used this to power any recording gear?  Thinking it may be a good choice over DVD batteries if it's reliable.

I just got one of these (http://www.amazon.com/Anker-10000mAh-Multi-Voltage-Camcoders-Recorders/dp/B005NGKR54/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header&tag=613240924-20) which is from the same manufacturer, but 14400mAh instead of 10000mAh for $59.99. It just arrived over the weekend and I haven't had a chance to do a test run with it yet. Unfortunately, the one I bought is not currently available on Amazon.

There's another thread in this forum (http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=152998.0) that discusses the 10000 even though the OP's link re-directs to the 14400. Looks like there haven't been any complaints on it so far from the people that have used it for powering gear.

Wow it's down to $49.95/free ship for the 10000mAh....

i have never heard of this product before, but this review I just saw on Amazon would make me afraid:

Quote
1.0 out of 5 stars DC Power Output Defective by Design, April 18, 2013
By
Tus-Chan - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Anker Astro3 10000mAh Multi-Voltage (5V 9V 12V) Output Portable Power Pack External Battery Charger for iPads, Samsung Tablets, iPhones, Android Smart Phones, Camcoders, Digital Cameras / DV Recorders (Dual USB Output: 5V, 2A; DC Output: 9V / 12V, 2A) [12 connectors for mobile phones, 6 connectors for tablets, US AC adapter included] (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this battery with the intention of powering a 12VDC 400mA desktop headphone amplifier portably instead of being chained to a wall wart. Unfortunately, the first time I tried to use the amplifier with the battery, the battery malfunctioned and, as I found out later, completely fried my amplifier. I have taken this amplifier to multiple electricians and none of them have even the slightest clue as to how this battery managed to destroy my device.

I have contacted Anker in hopes of finding a resolution to my problem, but they refuse to provide me any compensation or service simply because I made my purchase from Amazon. They also revealed to me that the DC output is defective in that it cannot, under any circumstances, provide any power to a device that is not also battery-powered, which is, frankly, ludicrous.

In short, do not buy this product if you are intending to use it to power a device without a battery, or if you aren't willing to play Russian Roulette with the DC output.
