    You can't charge the Mavic from a portable charger. Only the AC or car charger.

    All depends what you're referring to as a "Portable Charger". Mavic Batteries cannot be charged by USB. I believe most people would refer to smaller USB Power Packs (such as a Mophie) when you mention Portable Chargers. There are, however, larger Power Packs which can output 12V to be able to plug your Mavic Charger into and charge on the go. Goal Zero has some of the best larger power packs out there with 12V output.

    We've seen many guys use the Goal Zero Yeti 150 out in the field: http://amzn.to/2foYuHW

    More specifics Ryan!

    Charge what? Controller? Mavic Pro? Both?

    What kind of portable charger? Battery Bank portable charger?

    Very appealing option as it has the abiltiy to recharge from portable solar panels! Take this camping and just set it out in the sun with solar panels and get to recharge ones Mavic Batteries.

    Now that's some "off-grid" action right there!

    Thanks for the posting on this as I was completely unaware that these existed.

    As someone who uses full sine wave inverters a lot I can tell you it requires a lot of DC power to supply 110VAC. The rated AC output is only 85 watts (so no advanced hub) and I would hazard a guess you would be lucky to get one Mavic battery fully charged before the DC pack was depleted. You would be better off plugging the Mavic travel charger into a 12VDC power pack.
