Why Phase Two?
I created Phase Two for the freedom you get from USB Power Banks, to fully power your camera for extended periods of time.
For when you are out in the middle of the desert taking astro shots.
When you are filming a full day and night wedding celebration on a luxury yacht.
For time lapses of the sun and moon gliding through the clouds over the horizon.
While the Mark I cameras do not allow charging while the camera is operating, the latest Mark II A7 cameras allow trickle charging through their built in Micro USB port, but they do not allow full charging and the installed battery eventually depletes.
Phase Two replaces the battery with a simulated dummy battery to a regulated and protected USB input, so you can run your camera from any USB source or Power Bank, as long as you want. You can hot swap power banks using the included Y splitter cable for infinite battery life.
