Default Lipo to power a gt500 at the field

I'd like to bring my GT500 when I go flying in place without power outlet. I see people using big lipo to power their charger.
Any recommendations?
I'll be charging 1600mah 4S lipo
Thanks

A 6s 5000 would get you 4 maybe 5 charges on a 4s 1600mah. Depending on how low you run the 4s pack.

Hobbyking has some semi cheap multistar 6s packs right now. $50 for a 6s 6600mah or $80 for a 6s 12000mah.

Deep cycle lead acid may be a better choice if you need to charge more than 10 times in a day.
