How to Power a Camera With a USB Battery
It doesn’t matter if you’re shooting stills or video, when you see the battery power indicator flashing on your camera beads of sweat start to form on your brow. And stopping to change camera batteries isn’t the preferred solution. Thankfully there’s a better way! With the Case Relay Camera Power System you can skip purchasing additional (and expensive) proprietary camera batteries and instead power your camera with any external USB battery pack.

How Case Relay Works

With Case Relay, you’ll never run out of power and never need to stress about forgetting extra camera batteries. Case Relay’s internal uninterruptible power system (UPS) battery will keep your camera powered while you swap out your USB battery back. Simply insert the Relay Camera Coupler directly into the camera battery port, attach it to the Case Relay power your camera with any 5V USB power bank with a 2.1A+ output. Because Relay also has its own secondary internal 1200 mAh battery, if your external battery runs low you can easily hot swap the external battery and not lose power to the camera.

Using a USB Battery Pack
