  • Note: There are many different ways to rate a battery capacity on market. For your information, 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.

    Battery Capacity Rating: 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. 159 Watt-hour (Wh) capacity means the battery can theoretically last 159 hours if the device it powered only needs 1 Watt power, or 1 hour if the device need 159W 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. A lithium-ion battery cell capacity is usually measured in Ampere-hour (Ah). Since an external battery uses many battery cells, some cells are connected in parallel, some are connected in serial, using Watt-hour will be more accurate to rate its capacity. If using Ampere-hour to rate its capacity, it should state the Ampere-hour capacity is under which given voltage. For example, 9000 mAh at 16V means the battery capacity is 9000 mAh x 15V = 135 Wh. 9000 mAh at 19V means the battery capacity is 9000mAh x 19V = 171 Wh. Although the two batteries have same Ampere-hour, their actual capacity is different.

    We have seen some batteries on market marked with an unusually large capacity, such as 20000 mAh (20Ah), but not stating under what voltage. It turns out that they just simply add battery cells Ampere-hour without considering how the battery cells are connected. To convert the Ampere-hour to Watt-hour, you need to use 3.6V or 3.7V as voltage to calculate Watt-hour(3.6V or 3.7V is a lithium-ion battery cell voltage). In this case, the battery actual capacity may be only 20 Ah x 3.7V =74 Watt-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.

    We also offer optional VESA Mount Kit to mount this battery to the back of LCD monitors:

    Comparisons of External Battery and Internal Battery

    BP160 External Battery

    Traditional Internal Battery

    How to Charge battery Has its own charger , battery can be charged anytime without the laptop/notebook computer. Very convenient Must put battery into laptop/notebook computer or use expensive proprietary charger to charge battery
    How to use battery Plug to the laptop/notebook computer's DC power input plug, plug and play. Insert the battery into the laptop/notebook computer's battery bay.
    Compatibility Can be used for 90% of laptop/notebook computers on the market. When you upgrade your laptop/notebook computer, you may still be able to use the battery for new laptop/notebook computer. Every internal battery is proprietary. 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 this battery works:

    Charge the battery: This battery has its own AC battery charger and 12V car charger. You can charge it from any 110V or 220V AC power source or from a car 12V cigarette lighter socket with the 12V car charger. Both the AC charger and the 12V car charger need to connect to the In port of the battery pack.

    To quickly charge the battery, we recommend to charge the battery fully while it is not in use.

    BP160 battery has specially designed to be able to charge and discharge at same time. However, since each lithium battery has limited charge/discharge cycles ( around 500 times), it is not recommend to use the battery when AC power is available.

    LED lights:
    The first LED light turns RED while charging.
    You will only see a red LED all the time when the battery is under charging:
    Steady red LED means the battery is under charging;
    Blinking red LED means the battery is fully charged.
    Please unplug the charger when red LED blink.

    No any other LED will light on anytime until you press the button.

    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).

    Set correct 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.

    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:

    The cigarette lighter adapter is optional, not included in the battery pack.

    2. Select right tip:

    Included with your battery is a output cable with more than 14 different connector plug tips.

    The output cable (Z6 Power Cable) one end connect to the battery output port, another end has a 5,5mm/2.5mm connector which will fit a lot laptop notebook computers and other devices.

    If the Z6 cable connector does not fit your laptop notebook computers, you can use one of following connector plgu tips that work with most laptop notebook computers. With the plug tips not connected to Z6 output cord, locate the correct tip by fitting the tip into your laptop notebook computer or other device DC Jack. The tip should fit snugly in the DC jack. The plug the tip to the Z6 output power cable.

    Connector Tips :

    The package comes with 18 or more connector tips for different laptop/tablet/notebook computers.

    * We may discontinue some old tips and add some new tips without notice. Actual connector tips may not be exactly same as the pictures show.

    3. 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 !

    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 159Wh(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.

  • This battery works for devices that need 12V or 18V ~ 20V DC power ( it is same as device AC power adapter DC output voltage)

  • Warranty: One Year limited warranty. The one year limited warranty covers manufacturing and quality defects only. Please note that batteries wear out with use. The amount of charge a battery can hold gradually decreases due to usage and aging, which is normal, and this is not the issue covered by warranty.
