2. The CA-PS700 AC adapter says the output is 7.2V / 2.0A. This is 14.4 watts.

More info for you...

Actually the adapter linked to above lists its DC Output (on the device) as 7.6v/8.4v/8.8v. No current (or wattage) spec.

It lists the USB Input as 5v, 2A - 4A (above 2.4A, 3A is better).

I'm not sure why they don't list a maximum current (or wattage) spec for the DC Output, but I think it has plenty of capacity (doesn't get real hot).

When I measured the 5v output of a battery bank (while powering the M6ii), the current ranged from about half an amp to 1 amp when in normal operating modes (incl recording video), but it could momentarily range up to 2 amps or even (rarely) 3 amps when recharging the flash.

I went ahead and ordered the USB battery power cord from Amazon and will try it with the standard 5V / 2.4A USB battery that I have. That is only 10.8 watts

That's actually 12 watts (which is the USB standard). 12 watts worked fine powering my M6ii (and M6) for all operations.
