    Default Can I power the Chromecast using an external battery pack?

    I know this is random and not practical but would the chrome cast work off a battery pack or charger pack?

    I'd hardly say that's an impractical question; it's a good idea. I can't say for sure, but my guess would be yes assuming the pack in question can provide the necessary current.

    Even if it didn't, wouldn't the Chromecast just eat the battery faster than what the battery pack was configured for?

    If the battery pack was designed to rapid charge no. To rapid charge the battery pack would have to put out over 1 amp and that is more then the CC needs.

    I think the question is were would you be that you would have wifi and a tv but not have to a power outlet.

    I was just following the line of questions for the OP. My cast is plugged into the USB port in my TV.
