Thanks for this update. This maybe our Canadian solution !!
and Don, I will be looking forward to your report.
I bought a couple of these, they were $23.99ea + free shipping. Works well in my Maestro.
Do you have to turn it on manually or does it turn on automaticity when you turn the Maestro on?
The battery automatically senses the load when i turn on the Maestro, and the usb pack turns itself on. I've never had to turn the pack on manually.
It may not be as high mA/hr rating as some of the other ones mentioned here, but at 2.4A output, auto-on, lots of 5* reviews and since it was available in Canada, very cheap (nearly 1/2 the price of the other ones mentioned here) and no shipping hassles, it was my choice. So far so good.0
Very good. I like it because of the LCD display. There is a version available on the US Amazon I may try one.
The one I bought/gave the link for don't have a display; which is likely why its a lot cheaper than the first one mentioned in this thread. If its tucked away inside the Maestro, you'll never see the display anyway! :-)

I see now the one you ordered.
I have the Polanfo Q5 Power Bank (among others). They have a LED display on the end of the battery. It shows % of battery remaining and is on when the Maestro draws current. I can see the display thru the slats of the back battery cover without removing the cover.
