This exactly what I wanted. But difficult to get in the uk. So settled for the skywatcher 17ah tank.

Hi Mehdi, I also have the iExos100. I now use the Explore Scientific USB Power Bank. Its small, light weight, and fits perfectly in the iExos stock plastic battery pack holder. I power the mount, and a couple of dew heaters, and it will last at least several hours. I have been outside for 2-3 hours, and it is still around 75-80 capacity (estimated). It also has a red light that I use to illuminate the area under the mount.
