    Bob, that unit has a maximum available amperage of 4.5 amps. You're only going to be drawing 1.0 amps, so you're good to go. You could probably run that thing for a couple of days continuously with that much available power (16,750mAh). My pack is 13,000mAh and supplies 1.0 or 2.1 amps and it powers my LabRadar all morning with plenty of power to spare.

    Any usb cell phone charge pack will power it as long as it at least has 1a. The bigger the pack the longer itll last. Some of the gas station packs are only .5a so they may not power it for long

    A very common misconception. As long as the Output Voltage is 5 V you could use a power pack with 100 amp/hr rating. The device attached will only draw the current it needs, regardless of the batteries capacity. The larger the capacity, the longer it will last.

    Terry,

    If weather conditions stay the same keeping on a certain velocity will work. But if a new system moves in or it rains you have to hunting for the correct velocity again. This is with a PPC. Took me a while to figure it out.

    I’ve been shooting with a labradar on the bench at matches for 2 years now.

    I bought an adapter for my DeWalt 20V cordless tool batteries. That lasts two forevers before needing charging. As far as the case, I had an old laptop bag that is kind of a soft sided briefcase type deal and it fits and works great for that. It's even black so it's tactical and offers better protection than the Labrador one. If you don't have one, your local Goodwill has a bunch and they will ask <$5 for it.
