How much additional runtime can I get from your external batteries?

As far as runtime goes for our PPS-130 (Portable Power Station 130Wh) this battery's capacity is 130Wh(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:

10.8V x 4000 mAh = 43200 mVAh= 43.2 Wh (Watt-hour).

This external battery capacity is about 130/43.2=3 times of your internal battery capacity.


If your internal notebook battery can run 3 hours, then the external battery pack can theoretically run about : 3 hours x 3 = 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.

130Wh Portable Power Station June 2, 2007
Reviewer: Steven D. Lawrence from San Jose, California  

The flight from SFO to Shanghai is around 13 hours.  A couple hours into the flight, all the big laptops run out of juice, and have to be put away, lifeless, leaving only the sub-notebooks and those with spare batteries.

Even then, four to six hours into the flight, most computers (and other
techno-gadgets) are down for the count, and only one or two people are left with computers after that.

I found your battery after considerable research. Weighing in at a respectably light 1.87 lbs., compatible with the widest range of gadgets (including my new PSP), at a cost of around $300, I knew I had to have one.
That meant sanity for me on some insanely long flights.

I would have been happy if this thing could have given me six extra hours on my computer (heavy usage, in addition to the 2-4 hrs. I already get from my computer battery).  It did much better than that. With the WiFi antenna on, the hard drive thrashing, the DVD movies playing (three full length features, some game play in between, and tons of internet surfing), I was able to power my computer today from 11:10 am to 8:15 pm - NINE FULL HOURS NONSTOP!

This is without a doubt one of the best and smartest purchases of the year - I am sold, and so are those who witnessed it. We'll be back for more soon enough.

Incidentally, Dell, in their infinite "We Want You To Use Only Our Branded Peripherals" wisdom, designed an error message into the D-420. When I plugged the Power Station into my computer, an error message came up, stating that I should only use a Dell AC adapter. It informed me that the battery would not charge, and that the computer would run at a slower rate.
I was going to write to you and complain about this, looking for a workaround, but it actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise, to wit:

First, while powering the D-420 with my BG Power Station, the computer shows that it is running on AC power - not charging. This means that the Dell battery is effectively removed from the circuit.  I started out with 99% charge on my Dell battery, which stayed at 99% during the entire 9 hours that the Power Station was connected.  After 9 hours (HEAVY usage) the Power Station finally flashed its LOW CHARGE warning. When it finally lacked enough current to power the computer, the computer immediately switched over to battery power (effectively removing the Power Station from the circuit).
SEAMLESSLY. FLAWLESSLY. Exactly the way I would have wanted it done.  I don't want the Power Station to charge the battery. I want it to power the notebook, and when it's dead, I want the notebook battery to take over -- which is exactly what happened.

Guys, I couldn't be happier. Count me in as a loyal customer, with plenty of word-of-mouth good will to spread around.

Regards, and Happy Holidays,
Steven D. Lawrence
