I would be interested to know the details of your power bank and whatever cables your using. It has bigger capacity to mine and maybe lighter to carry.

I have this external power adapter, or something very similar:

The key is the twin USB plugs which connect to the power source. I plug them into an Anker PowerCore 20100 power bank. The power bank is neither small nor exactly lightweight, which is why I carry it in a waist pack. The cables are long enough to hand-hold the camera without issues.

The adapter can also plug into a pair of standard 1A mobile-phone chargers to supply mains power to the camera. It needs the pair of chargers as the 2500 requires more than the 1A of power a single charger provides.
