Russ, I have few questions what to ask you.
1) For Intocicuit, how long does it take to fully charge the Surface Pro (from 5-10% to 100%)?
2) How many times I can charge the Surface Pro? I know it has 26000mah and Surface Pro's battery is 5676mah.
Does it mean I can charge up my Surface Pro for 4 times with that Intocircuit battery?
3) Will it overheat if I charge and using Surface Pro at the same time?
4) Can I charge it and play games at the same time (can battery continue charge up during the use)?
5) XP18000A and the Intocircuit 26000 Power Castle which one is better(performance, quality, charging time)?
I really appreciate for your answers. As this is a over US$100 battery, I don't want made the wrong decision.
1) . . . With the Intocircuit 26000 plugged in when playing game, is the Surface Pro going to draw the battery from the Introcircuit battery first instead of the internal battery? In other word, this Intocircuit or Xp18000A external battery can perform like you have a wall charger plugged in. Is it correct?
2) . . . Totally I can have 12.5 hours non stop gaming with it connected, is that right?
I am planning to go for wild camping where I can only depends on external battery. If these battery works, I don't need to worry about looking for battery during the camp.
1 - Yes, the Pro treats the external battery like a wall socket and will draw power from it rather than using it's own battery, as long as power is available from the external, then will switch to its internal battery. I tested that concept with the XP18000A. I set the power settings to "Never/Never" when plugged in, so the Pro would not sleep as long as there was power available externally; then set some reasonable sleep time when it was running on its own battery. I hooked it up early in the evening, and just let it run. I had two or three open programs, but was not actively using them. When I went to bed, it was still running, and had not gone to sleep -- meaning it was using the setting for plugged in. When I got up the next morning, the Pro had gone to sleep due to inactivity, meaning that it switched to its own battery when the external was completely discharged. Not a very scientific test, but it told me what I wanted to know.
2 - "Totally I can have 12.5 hours non stop gaming with it connected, is that right?" -- Well, yeah, I guess you could, but you might need therapy afterward.
Enjoy your camping.
1)The most I concern is, if I play game on the Surface Pro, it last about 2-2.5 hours for battery life (HD video 3-3.5 hours). With the Intocircuit 26000 plugged in when playing game, is the Surface Pro going to draw the battery from the Introcircuit battery first instead of the internal battery? In other word, this Intocircuit or Xp18000A external battery can perform like you have a wall charger plugged in. Is it correct?
2)For a little math, lets say Introcircuit 26000 can charge up Surface Pro 4 times. Does it mean if I plug in Introcircuit into Surface Pro, I can continuously have it stay on for (2.5 hours x 4) which is about 10 hours non stop playing plus the original 2.5 hours? Totally I can have 12.5 hours non stop gaming with it connected, is that right?
