MAXOAK 50000mAh 5/12/20v Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank for Laptop & Notebook-Most of Sony Dell Hp Toshiba Samsung Lenovo Acer IBM NEC Mobile Phone Tablet(not for Apple Laptop) [link]
Is there any concern about it ruining my Switch? How do I know?
I recommend the MAXOAK portable laptop charger.

Edit: Works great with robots too!
I have an Anker and a Qi-Infinity bought a couple of years ago and they've been great. You could also consider a Lizone QC 35000mAh, but if I were going to buy one now, I'd get a MAXOAK 50000mAh 5/12/20v, which is "Amazon's Choice for "surface pro power bank." The Qi can charge my SP3 2.5 times. If you have any battery concerns, these solve the problem for an extra pound or so.
You might get a little over 2 just derpin' on the web or just barely be able to finish a 2 hour movie on it in eco mode. It's a super thin gaming laptop, it has a tiny battery.
If you really need a thin gaming laptop you can use something like this [link] but you'll still drain the battery if you try to draw more than 90w (any time you turn on the 1060).
Other options exist. Get something with thunderbolt 3 and an external GPU. Get this and a $200 chromebook for daywork on the go. Get a beefier gaming laptop with a bigger battery.
I use a gs73vr and a android tablet with usb keyboard for random meetings and coffeeshop work. The laptop goes with when I fly and I see it more as a movable workstation not a daily driver.
I saw this one from Anker...
... but doesn't seem to work, doesn't have nearly enough output for the Dell XPS so even less for the Razer...
The legal limit for a laptop battery on a flight is 99wh -- you might be able to get away with something like this: [link] -- it's 185wh but it might be the exception to the rule.
I think you'll be pushing it close depending on how much the scope draws (that battery is 204Wh, so only ~2x what the built in one on the laptop is).
Here's a 185 Wh battery: [link].
As long as you can do the correct voltage you'll be okay, however if you're not careful you could trip the OC detection as our laptops can draw more than those will provide. I'd keep it plugged in trickle charging the laptop to 100% battery until it dies and then use the internal battery.
I recently picked up a LiPo 50AH battery from Amazon to replace my deep cycle. So far I'm very happy with it, it runs my scope, computer and accessories for 2 nights easily.
I had to do some soldering to get the right plugs everywhere, but that wasn't much work.
This is the one.
As for when the computer dies, I wrote a script to write the date to a file every minute. Mine was bash and I ran it under cygwin, but this is a similar one I found online in batch.
echo %time% >> time.txt
timeout /t 60
Awesome! Glad this is working, I'm patient zero on this setup and had commented about it a few times. I've been using mine with my Remstar (standard polarity) for a bit over a year now, both on my sailboat and backpacking. Glad it's doing the job for folks!
As an aside, if you don't need lightweight (e.g. car camping vs backpacking), this unit for a bit more is double the amp hours, so will last even longer.
I'm the one that originally posted that unit - it def does the job, but I would also point out this one, which wasn't out at the time I bought mine. It's $35 more for double the capacity, actually (50kmah vs 23kmah).
Just confirm the power usage you can get from a power bank. Most power banks do no have enough amperage to supply the notebook for any sort of high performance mode, so you would be best to put your computer in low performance when using a power bank.
Just check the voltage output of the power banks, for one that matches the input of if your machine, which should appear over the power supply unit.
This one has up to 5A over 20V. Check your PSU to see if that works. Your usual PSU is 120 to 150W so it won't be good for gaming, just as extra battery.
Power banks are a thing. I was actually looking into this recently. <strong>this one</strong> would do what you're looking for and is very well reviewed.
Yes, that is definitley what I am looking for. This is what I'm looking for, and someone who isn't an ass recommended it. I thank them.
According to the review I read (there will undoubtedly be more reviews later), the cooling is fine.
You may want more battery life, but then others would complain about how it's too thick. Personally, I'd rather have thin, because you can also plug in a 50,000 mAH battery bank for about $136 from Amazon, seen here, and then when you don't need the extra power, the machine is still thin.
Would something like this work? Would 50000mAh be enough to charge the board a significant amount? I tried to find specs on the BB's battery, but haven't been able to yet.
Would something like this be safe to use?
Edit: On BB's website, it says the battery is 99wh. The power bank I linked states it's 185wh.
there's not such a thing as long lasting battery on a power laptop, might be bulky or to big, for just 1-2 hours of battery life, what you could do is having a spare battery pack like this.
Could recommend you Sager Laptops, if you don't mind being bulky at all.
Or the Razer Blade 14, slim, compact, MacbookPro alike casing, and i7 + 970m.
Maybe something like this would be helpful? [link]
most likely only from powerbanks like these:
(probably not since output is only 60 watts)
there's lots of options for 50,000 mAh battery packs out there but they aren't that cheap (more than $100 for sure). Depending on your laptop, 50,000 mAh is at least 3 charges and probably more than that. linked below is one that works for pretty much any laptop except for macbooks
You could look at: MAXOAK 50000mAh
or something like the
Lifepower Portable Wall Socket .
Find a magsafe 2 cable that works with a universal connector like USB or DC and then you can buy a battery pack with that port like this. I am not sure if it'll work but the cable is cheap.
I use; [link]
, but probably too big for plane regulations.
I'll give it a shot. I have this 50,000 but it's so big and heavy it often gets left behind [link]
I use one of these: [link]
Which maxes out at 2.5a 12v to run my CPC1100 but just the scope, not dew heaters.
i recommend an universal power bank for you
i have a raspi3 which i use with a 5V, 2A phone charger without any issue
if you need large power bank for longer autonomy
is the largest power bank i have ever seen in internet, but i'm not sure if
those specifications exactly as described.
as for the LCD you will have to find it elsewhere
Here's a couple examples:
I've charged similar devices with the lenovo 90W Slim power adapter since it can use multiple tips. I don't know of any that accept the regular lenovo jacks for input.
Fandt ret hurtigt denne. Har dog ingen erfaring med den, men ret gode anmeldelser på Amazon :)
That battery outputs only at 5v. You're going to want a battery that can output more power if you use other devices that require that for charging.
a similar alternative is something like this with the car charger
Just to note though - batteries this large are extremely heavy. They're fine for something like car camping but if you're a backpacker counting ounces, it'll be pretty tough.
Just for fun here is 10x more the capacity
Check this out 10x more capacity 50000 mah
You original PS seems to be 6.7amps.
I seriously doubt the battery is capable of producing that much.
I can't find any info on that particular unit, but there are others on Amazon and they all seem to max out at about 3-5 amps.
So under heavy load, the battery is probably going to go into protection mode and shut off.
Sorry, I thought my post was clear: The battery will be built-in to the project, and should be chargeable and usable in place, without needing to connect/disconnect anything, like a normal consumer device. I'm asking for information on how to build/charge/safely use li-ion battery packs made form individual cells, not advice on how to connect a battery to a speaker.
>Charge itself? As in "free energy"? That's not going to happen.
Then wouldn't you expect that I meant that the device could be plugged to charge and power connected devices at the same time?
Here is a 50Ah battery pack that is significantly smaller/lighter than the one you linked.
