I would like to put my dock on the table next to my sofa but unfortunately there are no power sockets that I can plug it into without having a cable trailing across open floor space. To solve this I’m wondering whether it would be practical to plug the dock into a reasonably high capacity power bank - maybe something like 30,000 mAh - which I could easily hide under the sofa and which I hope would keep everything going for maybe a few days between having to temporarily unplug the power bank and carry it to a power point to charge. (I might even get two so that one would always be charged and I could do a quick and easy swap every few days.)
The purpose of my post is trying to get some idea of whether “a few days” or even a single day is realistic and what “a few” might actually be in this context. To work that out I think the following info should get me most of the way there…
1 - What is the capacity of the internal battery in the remote itself? A mWh figure is probably more useful than a mAh figure so that I don’t need to adjust for possible voltage differences. If giving a mAh figure please do specify the voltage.
2 - How much power does the dock itself take when just sitting there staying online? (I’m assuming that the occasional IR blast is a pretty insignificant power drain compared to staying connected to the WiFi.)
And my final question is - has anyone else actually tried this and if so then how did you get on?
