If the battery is finished, does it works when powered with 5v 2a, or it needs more? What are the min and max power input values?
Asked by: Nicola
No, the Teradek Spark 4K Transmitter (B&amp;H# TE101856) specifically requires a USB PD power source, as can be seen on pp. 2-3 of the manual: https://bhpho.to/3DW1q7u A good option for powering it in the field would be to use the Belkin Boost Charge USB Type-C Power Bank (20,000mAh, 30W) (B&amp;H# BEBPB002BTBK): https://bhpho.to/3xeqtBk

Can the Spark be used simultaneously with the Ace, each having its own separate receiver?

Yes you can - As long as there are sufficient open channels, the Spark 4K or Ace or Bolt systems would not interfere with one another.

Aside from 4k, why would I choose this over the Teradek Ace 500?
Asked by: Al
The Teradek Spark 4K Transmitter/Receiver Set offers 4k and I think that would be the main reason that you would consider the kit over the Tredek Ace. Also the Spark 4k supports 10 bit and the ACE 500 only supports 8-bit color.

Is there a USB power bank you recommend that will charge the transmitter while in use?

I imagine any usb power adapter will work. I use a black magic cinema camera that's usually using the ac adapter so I plug the spark in to the usb-c port.
