Hi, just received my Ripcord for HX Stomp. Barrel adapter, etc. fits; but it appears my USB powerbank might not be providing enough power. I had thought 5V / 2A would be sufficient; but that appears not to be the case. Can you please advise the optimum number of amps required to power the HX Stomp via the Ripcord?

As a follow up to my question above.  It seems if I take the fully-charged power bank and connect the Ripcord for HX Stomp to my HX Stomp, the screen flickers, but HX Stomp will not power on/boot up -- it is plugged into what the specs of the power bank show to be a 2.1A port.  However, if I start charging the power bank, the HX Stomp (same connections otherwise) powers up without issue.  

Does this indicate possibly a an issue with the power bank not actually providing the full 5V or 2.1A unless the power bank itself is charging?

Any recommendations for power banks that have been tested with the Ripcord and an HX Stomp that will last at least 5 hours would be appreciated.   Seems the Ripcord itself is doing it's job ;-)
