External Battery for HP Spectre X360 (13-w0xx) (late 2016 model)

Product Name: Spectre X360 (13-w0xx)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 Charging is through USB-C port.

Has anyone out there figured out how to charge fom an external battery? (e.g. RavPowerRP-PB14)

Hey there! @JackW1, Welcome to HP support forums.

 

 

I understand you need to know whether you can charge your laptop using external battery.

 

Charging a laptop with a power bank is possible but you need to consider the size of your laptop and its charging requirements. For devices like x360, you need at least 45 W AC power output, something that only the biggest power banks will be capable of providing. A laptop must also be plugged into an AC outlet because a USB is only capable of providing about 2.5 watts of power output. A laptop battery charger has a specific power output and you need to consult yours before purchasing. 
 

 

I will watch for your reply.

Have a wonderful day ahead! Smiley Happy

So, my questions remains.

Do you know of any external battery pack that will work?

@JackW1, Thanks for the reply.

 

No, it will not work since your laptop would need more power to power on. The external battery will not work.

 

Your laptop needs 45w input power to use your laptop.

 

 

Hope this answers your query.

 

Have a great day ahead! Smiley Happy
