* Battery Capacity Rating: 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. 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 44000mAh. 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.

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
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:
The cigarette lighter adapter is optional, not included in the battery pack.
3. Select right tip:
Included with your battery is a output cable with more than 10 different connector plug tips.
(Click to see details)
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 plug 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.
Plug Tips For Laptops:
* 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.
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 !
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.
Combine 2 ( or more) batteries together to provide more running time
If you need more running time, you may connect 2 batteries together in parallel with BiXPower Y25 Split Connector
Y25 Split Connector Not Included
To link two batteries in this way, please make sure:1. The output voltage of two batteries is set at same.
2. Any single battery has ability to power the powered device by itself.The purpose of link two or more batteries together is to provide longer running time without interruption.
There this no balance control between two batteries . One battery may output more power than another battery and run out of power earlier than another battery. This will not be a problem if a single battery output power is enough to run powered device. However, if the powered device power demand is more than a single battery capability, it may run to problem when one battery run out of power earlier.Notes: Only a few BiXPower batteries ( such as BP90, BP100, BP160 and BP220 batteries) have been specially designed to allow multi batteries to connect in this way. Other batteries may not be allowed to be connected together in this way (unless specially mentioned).
You may also use multi Y25 Split Connectors to Daisy Chain more batteries to provide even more power. Please make sure all batteries output voltages are set at same. Fully charge each battery separately before connect them together.
The battery regular Z6 output cable can fit Y25 connector female end, which will be combined output port in this case. You may use BiXPower Special Cable with On/Off Switch
: which can be used power output cable directly without battery regular Z6 output cable.
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.
