I am looking for a yoke mount for a full size iPad with an Otter case.

Personally I don't think full size iPad goes well on yoke. Specially not on pilot side as it blocks quite some view and scan of instruments.

A full size iPad would be insanely yuge on the yoke. I recently went from a mini to an iPad Pro 9.7 (same size as iPad Air) and it is almost too big... but not quite. Absolutely perfect IMHO.

I never found a good place to put my iPad2 due to its size. Instead, I bought a Mini and mounted it on the yoke, where it works fine. I do have to tilt it sometimes to eliminate glare. On a long trip I will bring the bigger iPad as a backup and just use it like a chart, holding it while I look at it. Turning off the display when you don't need it saves a lot of battery power.

Neither one is plugged into the plane's power.

I've got 12v receptacle (cig lighter plug) on my panel that has a dual 2 amp usb port. If any of my i-devices are low on power I keep a coiled wire charging cord handy that doesn't get in the way of anything. I occasionally even use the coiled plug to the ipad mounted on my yoke. No issue.

I have the iPad Mini mounted on the yoke and the perfect size for the plane, anything bigger obstucts the instruments in my plane.
