    Question External battery or keyboard dock ???

    - Please read the entire post before giving me your feedback -


    As Spring time is approaching I have been thinking a lot about the amount of usage my Prime will get when I'm on my boat. I have not had an issue with battery life, at least not before the most recent firmware update, my Prime only gets used 20-30 minutes a day. But when my wife and I spend the night on the boat the Prime will be used to watch movies, surf the web and play games. I would like to avoid having to use an inverter to charge the prime. Most weekends we will only be on the boat for 1 night and 2 days.

    Anyway, what are the specs on the battery in the keyboard dock? I searched but didn't find any specifics. Most sites just say that dock provides an extra 6 hours. If I knew the exact specs I could just find a comparable external battery and buy that instead of buying the dock. I like the idea of having the dock, but having the external battery would allow me to use it for my Prime, my phone, my wife's phone and her Kindle Fire. I really have no use for the dock other than the extra battery life.

    Does anyone have any experience with external batteries for tablets?

    Thanks for any feedback!!!!

    My thought is that your best solution is the inverter you don't want to use. I can't remember anyone who has found an external battery with a USB output that would put out enough voltage/watts/AMPs and/or would last very long if you could.
