I purchased this to use for Laptop's and charging Ipad, Ipod, Iphone when traveling, or when emergency power is needed. It was shipped fast by B&H and once arrived I checked the contents and put it to use.

I mostly have Lenovo products, X1 Carbon and S210 use flat style (new) port and they don't have tips for that. However was able to use an adapter cable from Patuoxun® Power Converter Cable (0B47046).

My other Lenovo use the large round 20v connector and those are AB11 that don't come with it, but ordered from Xpal tips for life.

I also have Lenovo SFF portable workstations (Q180 and M72e Tiny) that use a size not found, imagine my surprise when I discovered that its the tip of the blue cable.

Verify all volts before connecting any device. My next test will be using a battery usage program to find out how long it will last.

I was only able to get a couple hours from this battery on my PC laptop. Also, unfortunately, it's not compatible at all with any of the Apple MacBook laptops so i wasn't able to use it on my MacBook Pro. I ended up returning it and getting a couple of Novuscell external laptop batteries from The [*] for not that much more money that have been working great for over 8 hours per charge on both my PC and my MacBook. They also included a free external cell phone battery and leather carrying case which are pretty sweet.

        My son needs his laptop to last 6 hours in school but it was only holding out for about one and a half. Since using this external battery he has no problem using his laptop in school for the time interval needed.

                This unit is great. I think of it as a universal charger and battery. It even charges and powers my Blackmagicdesign Cinema Camera! It is fairly light for the power it packs.

                I do wish it had some standard mounting holes so that those of us wanting to use it with photo, video, and audio gear could mount it. But, I can't really knock it for that.

                  It's very good for devices especially recent laptops which have embedded batteries. There is a website to get free adapter plugs after registration (shipping cost applies).

                    Amazing amount of battery power.
                    Easy to Use, comes with a variety of different adaptors.

                    Be sure to check which adaptor you need for your notebook...you may need to order them (the adaptor is free but you'll need to pay postage).

                      I bought the previous model, XP18000 and it is so good, that I wanted another. These new ones have the same specs, but a bit better, so I did not hesitate to buy one.

                      You really can run a laptop, or other mobile device for a very long time.

                          This power pack adds 1.5hrs + to my power guzzling clevo laptop (quad core + GTX580M gpu). Should give hrs of extra runtime on a regular notebook.

                          Great to keep as a backup in the car - and lighter than carrying another 180W power brick !

                          I should have ordered 2 !
