Hello!
How to use TBS5927 USB receiver like realy portable device? What power source do you use? Powerbank? Which one? How much is the consumption of TBS+DiseqC motor? The original power supply is 12 V/ 2A. I thought about power from laptop USB, but from 5 V USB port is problably not possible to do 12V/2A... What sollution do you use?
Thank you for your tips!

Try the Ebay (or wherever) for a lithium ion alternative. This will pack more energy per gram than a lead acid alternative. They do cost more though.

Yes, i will write my experiencies! But i think, when power supply is 2A (and this 2 A could be max only when rotate diseqC motor, normally will be consumption i think maximal 0,5 A)... So then 20 Ah battery pack will work quite long time:-) I thought to build the TBS5927 into the box from old (but never used) DVB-T STB with battery together. Will be quite bigger, but compact and portable. The air for fan should be also no problem because the box has nice grid...
