    Anyways is a "Y" cable, precisely:

    "Nodal Ninja Mecha DC Power Splitter Cable 1x male to 2x female"

    to allow two battery holders to be connected in parallel.
    Here is the image

    The default battery holder has room for
    2 x NP-F550
    which seems to go up to 3200 mAh

    if you want to use the much higher (3..4x) provided by NP-F970 you'll need to have bottom to bottom battery holder,
    as F970 won't fit in the default battery holder (unless if there will be in the future default variant for F970)
    the Power splitter cable is only need if you want to have 2 x (2 x NP-Fxxx) i.e to use 4 batteries which allow you to change them on the fly, beside the double amount of capacity.

    If you go on power bank way, be sure is the kind which has output 12 V (..19 V)
    not by negotiations in fast charge protocol,
    but to have dedicated 12V output (maybe selected via a selector)

    I don't quite understand, what should I do if I want the whole device to last longer.(SKU: F9923)

    DC Power Splitter Cable for MECHA?
    Nodal Ninja Mecha Dual Battery Holder Bottom to Bottom?

    Can the F970 battery be connected to c2 via DC Power Splitter Cable for MECHA (F9917)?

    I now plan to buy a 65w power bank and a type-c to 4mm dc cable,plug into the DC IN interface(9-19v 2A).

    e.g.

    I'm only guessing he meant vs 2200 mAh

    OK. But what does he mean by higher capacity? Higher than what capacity?

    MECHA C2 has a DC Input 9-19 V / 2A
    https://www.nodalninja.com/Manuals/c2-guide.pdf#page=11

    By default it has a battery holder for two NP-F550

    Battery last for many hours. There are batteries with higher capacity too. So not an essential item.
    What model and capacity batteries are supported?

    Thanks Nick. It was not included in the DAC kit I received but appears to have been included in the kit for another customer. See link below. Not sure why but regardless can you send me one or do I need to order it? Thank you.

    Sorry, I must have mislead you, I couldn't find it either, so maybe is sold separately, I might saw it in an image
    trouble, is I cannot find the image either, thus not been able to provide the image.
    Maybe was in some message exchanged with Nick.
    If I'll find it, I'll take an image for sure.
