ZV-1 and external battery issue

So ran into a small issue yesterday. I was filming a Gig Log with my ZV-1 (it's first outing) and I've paired it with a 32000mAh external battery to do essentially long multi-hour 4k recordings.

But for some reason a recording stopped and it appears the internal battery had died out. My thing is I thought the battery gets bypassed if you have it charging via USB. Or is it that the battery is being charged simultaneously while it's operating the camera, and that it simply couldn't keep up with the recording. I got about 175 minutes of recordings from 30-45 minutes each before I ran into this issue.I swapped out the battery only after noticing I missed about 20 minutes of recording and got another 40 minutes out of that before I was done for the night. The battery pack barely budged in it's depletion.

Any thoughts?
