Super high capacity, long run time, external rechargeable universal battery pack. Made with high quality Panasonic Li-ion battery cells.  


Features:

1. Super high capacity: 153 Watt-hour, or 42,500mAh if rated as other brand external batteries on market that just simply add all battery cells Amp-hour together. It may add extra 6 ~ 12 hours for most laptop computers. (This is a rough estimate. Actual running time varies, depending on notebook computer's configurations and what kind of applications running.) Its 19V DC output can be used to power and charge laptop notebook computers and tablet PCs that require 18V ~ 20V DC power. It has up to 2~3 times battery run time (153 Watt-Hour capacity, compared to 40~60 Watt-Hour capacity  of most notebook computer batteries.)


Vertical Base is optional, not included.

battery with VESA mount kit
VESA Mount Kit is available as an option. You can use the VESA mount kit to hold the battery on back of LCD monitor, side of desk or any place you like.


2. This battery also has a 5V USB port. It can power and charge Cell phones, PDAs and other electronic devices that can be powered from 5V USB ports.

Through the 5V USB port, this battery can provide 100  hours talk time/internet time for iPhone (iPhone cable and connector not included. 900 hours for mp3 player & 1800 hours for eBook (Use the 5V USB port)


3. On/Off Switch: The "On/Off" switch on the battery front not only provides convenience, it is also specially designed to provide safety protection: when the battery switch is turned on and output cable is plugged, the battery will output power to output cable. However, the battery will not be turned on if it detects no output cable is plugged even the On/Off switch is turned on. This way, even you forget to turn off the battery switch after the unplug the cable, the battery will turn off by itself. If the "On/Off" switch is accidentally turned to "On" without notice, the battery will still keep in "Off" mode if no output cable is plugged in the output port.

1. Strong, impact resistant outer casing.
2. Fully functional electronic board inside to control the input voltage and current that actually applied to battery cells when in charging mode.
3. Built-in DC to DC converter to supply regulated stable power at different user selectable voltages.
4. On/off switch. The power pack will only turn on when both output cable is plugged in the output port and the on/off switch is turned on. This will effectively prevent the power pack to be activated accidentally.
5. Many safety protection functions such as Over-charge protection, Over-discharge protection, Over current protection, Over temperature protection, Short circuit protection.

    * Battery Capacity Rating:  153 Watt-hour (Wh) capacity means the battery can theoretically last 153 hours if the device it powered only needs 1 Watt power, or 1 hour if the device need 153W power. A typical 6-cell internal notebook battery capacity is about 49 Watt-hour. A typical 12-cell internal notebook battery capacity is about 98 Watt-hour.

    There are many different ways to rate a battery capacity on market. If we rate this battery capacity like some other brand external batteries on market that just simply add all battery cells Amp-hour capacity together, then this battery capacity is 42,500mAh or 42.5Ah. This may be a little confusing. We suggest using "Watt-hour" instead of "Amp-hour" to compare capacities of different batteries. Watt-hour or Wh, is a more accurate unit to show the power capacity than Amp-. Hour (Ah) that was used before. The Watt-Hour unit means the wattage that the battery can provide within one hour.





    IN -- Battery input port for connecting to battery charger
    OUT -- Battery power output port, connect to output cord.
    ON/OFF -- This On/Off switch controls output port power.
    USB -- Slide the cover to right side, there will be a USB port which outputs 5V DC power
    You can use the 5V USB Port on the battery to charge cellular phone, MP3 player or other small electronics that can be charged from a 5V USB port. However, the battery pack does not come with any cable for connector tips for this USB port. Our optional Z4 cable and connector tips will work with this 5V USB port.

Different laptop/notebook computer needs different battery.
     Other usage  Can provide 12V and 19V DC power for other electronic devices also. can only be used for designed laptop/notebook computers.


    How to use this battery:

    1. Charge the battery: This battery has it own battery charger, you can charge it from any 110V or 220V AC power source with the included AC Charger. You can also charge the battery from a car cigarette lighter with the included Car Charger, or charge the battery from sun with optional solar panel.



    Solar Panel is optional, NOT included.

     Although the battery can be charged while it is in use, we recommend to charge battery while it is not in use. This will charge the battery better and faster.

    2. Set the battery output voltage:
    After the battery has been fully charged, set the voltage output of the battery close to your notebook DC power input requirement (which is same as your notebook AC power adapter's DC output voltage).

    This battery has a switch to set the voltage output at 12V or 19V. 12V is compatible with 11V~13V, 19V is compatible with 18V~21V.

    Slide the switch up to top to set 19V output.
    Slide the switch down to bottom to set 12V output.

    If your device DC power input requirement is  11V ~ 13V or 18V ~ 21V, you can  use the output cable to power your device directly from the battery Out port like this:



    If  you have a car charger for your device, you can use this battery together with your car charger to power your device. To do so,  set the battery output voltage at 12V, use an optional Cigarette Lighter Socket Adapter to convert the battery output port to a cigarette lighter socket like this:

    4.  Plug the connector and output cord

    After select right connector, plug it on the Z6 output cord, then plug output cord to the battery output port:

       
     
    Just that simple, now you are ready to use it !

    Note: If your notebook internal battery is a working battery and has been fully charged, you can leave it in your notebook. Otherwise, we recommend you removing the internal battery from your notebook to maximize the external battery running time.The external battery will still work fine if you leave non-charged internal battery in the notebook, but it may not reach the maximum running time since it needs to charge the internal battery at same time when it is powering the computer.

    How long can this external battery run ?

    This battery's capacity is about 153Wh(Watt-hour):
    you can compare this battery's capacity with your internal battery capacity to figure out how long this battery can run your notebook. For example, if your notebook internal battery output is: 10.8V & 4000 mAh, then, your notebook internal battery capacity is:

    11.1V x 4400 mAh = = 49 Wh (Watt-hour).

    This external battery capacity is about 150/49=3 times of your internal battery capacity.

    If your internal notebook battery can run 2 ~ 3 hours, then the external battery pack can theoretically run about :  6 ~ 9 hours.

    This is a rough estimate. Actual running time varies, depending on notebook computer's configurations and what kind of applications running . For example, screen brightness, the use of the CPU, the hard drive, the CD drive, and other peripherals results in an additional drain upon the battery, effectively reducing the battery's run-time. The total run-time of the battery is also heavily dependent upon the design of the notebook. To ensure maximum performance of the battery, optimize the computer's power management features. Refer to the computer manual for further instructions.

    Using two batteries together:

    If one battery can not provide enough running time, you may use 2 batteries. To maximum running time, using each battery separately. However, you may also connect 2 batteries in serial for convenience.






  • 1. Set battery 1 output voltage at 19V
  • 2. Connect battery 1 output to battery 2 input using the battery output cable.
  • 3. Set the battery 2 output voltage to the voltage your device needed.
  • 4. Connect the battery 2 output to your device power input jack using the output cable and connector tip if needed.
  • 5. Turn on both batteries.

    Note: This actually is using battery 2 to provide output power while using battery 1 to charge battery 2. The total running time will be less than running two batteries separately since some power will lost during the charging process. To maximum running time, it is recommended to use each battery separately.


    Compatibility:

    This battery will work for devices  that requires 12V or 19V DC power.  If your  device power adapter output voltage is 11V~13V or 18V ~ 20V, this battery should work for you as long as one of the connector tips fits the DC power input jack.  If your  device power adapter output voltage is not within the range,  this battery may not work for you.
