Windows 7: Laptop Power Pack?

Laptop Power Pack?


I am looking to buy a portable battery pack that can be used to charge my laptop. I currently have a Sony Vaio flip series laptop. My knowledge is pretty limited when it comes to batteries, but my laptop currently has a battery with 1.2A (50/60Hz) input and 2.3A output.

I wonder if traditional power packs like Anker E5 which provides 15,000Mwh is sufficient for a laptop (to get say about 6 hours of extra battery life). I also wonder if most of the higher end battery packs are compatible with "all laptops", or do you have to specifically ensure that they are compatible in terms of voltage or other specs? Finally, when looking at the Anker E5, I notice it has no "connection tips" with it, so how do I use it with my Sony Vaio? Can I buy the connection tips separately?

I would appreciate some advice on this.

I think maxie is right on. Your laptop probably requires about a 19.5V charger. The Anker E5 only puts out 5V which is apprpriate for mobile devices but not for laptops.

You would need something like this for your laptop:[referrer|[type|link[postId|509802431[asin|B002K8M9HC[authorId|5716553178370339807
