Although the MoPi doesn&rsquo t provide power itself, it provides the means for you to add various supplies, and given its wide functionality the $95 price seems more than reasonable.

The MoPi is cool but being in the USA I went looking for an alternate which I found in this PowerHAT which comes with a 7555mAh battery:
Users say this charger will hold its charge for quite some time, so you won’t need to do “top-up charges” just to keep this device ready for when you need it. It will fit easily in a bag, purse, or pocket. Unfortunately, it only has a single port for output, so you can only charge one device at a time with this portable battery pack. Still, that is sufficient for most people.
A great product worthy of note from the Mophie range is the Mophie Juice Pack Power Station at 9555 mAh and the costlier, Juice Pack Powerstation Duo XL, which has twin outputs and 67,555 mAh capacity.
Looking for a solution that&rsquo s a bit more home-spun? The MoPi: Mobile Pi is a good solution, and has its roots in a successful Kickstarter campaign. Designed to connect to the GPIO pins, it comes in two flavors, one low profile and another with its own GPIO for stacking other boards onto your Pi.
Then we have the Poweradd Pilot X5 66,555mAh followed by the Pilot X9 at 68,555 mAh then the Poweradd Pilot X8 at 65,955 mAh and the lower power versions the Pilot X7 7855 mAh and the Pilot X6 5755 mAh. The very popular and best-selling powerbank the 65,555 mAh Poweradd Pilot 7GS 65,555 mAh comes next, and two other Poweradd Pilot models complete the range, the Pilot E 5555 mAh and thePilot E7 67555mAh. For those folks who just need a small pocket portable device there is the Ultra Slim 7655mAh with a handy onboard flashlight.
To power up your Raspberry Pi, insert all but one of the batteries into the box and connect everything. When you&rsquo re ready, add the final battery and watch the status lights as the Pi boots. Success!
We've all been there: you're sitting at a coffee shop trying to crank out a presentation at the eleventh hour when all of a sudden, your laptop blares out a warning that you have less than 5%remaining battery life.
6x6=*6=9V, . Here the UBEC is necessary to convert this to 5V. The power supply gives of power, so dividing gives you . You won't get this through the power converter, though, since they are inefficient and you'll lose about 75% to internal resistance and heat loss. Figuring that it's 75% efficient, you'll get , just what you need. I would probably go with this option, but the other can work.
