    Just bought two of these. They fit perfectly in the Maestro. Can’t recommend them yet but I will put them through a few cycles and make sure they work well.

    50,000 or 500,000mah?

    Ad says 500000. Check it on eBay. Made by X-Dragon. I’m sure it’s Chinese but ships from California. I’m gonna play with them (I bought 2) and see if they last any longer than my Mogix 10,400 mAh ones.

    How do you get 500 Amp Hours into a Maestro :-) Wow.

    You don't!  One of the videos stated 6 hours to fully recharge (at 5V 1A) that is 30Ah.  Nice but definitely not 300Ah.  Just an accidentally on purpose printing on the device.

    Yeah I’m with you Stan. If it’s 30,000 mAH then it might still be better than the Mogix (10,400 mAh). We shall see. Brian KB1VBF

    Which one of the 500,000 ma/hr batteries did u get, black1, black2, etc.. The reason I ask is viewing the page on ebay, the config of the battery changes with different colors.

    Bob: I bought the ones that say quick charge in the ad. There was only a version offered in that ad. Brian

    I bought one too. It powers the Maestro for around 6 hours before needing a recharge.
