#MorePower from the Power Magic Expansion Battery!
More than double the capacity of your Power Magic Ultra Battery to ensure that there’s always a watchful eye on your car or truck.
Yes indeed! The Ultra Battery is made of Lithium Iron Phosphate cells (LiFePO4). Power banks designed as backup batteries for phones and portable electronic devices are usually of the Lithium-ion (Li-ion) or Lithium-polymer (LiPo) type.
Those high-density batteries are not suitable for use in a closed parked vehicle (where temperature can reach high–and low–levels) as they risk causing fire or explosion. LiFePO4 batteries like the Power Magic Expansion Battery can sustain more extreme temperatures, more charge cycles and are also more environment-friendly.
mAh can be misleading if we don’t consider voltage. Tip: Think in terms of Watt-hours (Wh). Of course, the type of battery should be taken into consideration: high power density batteries have a higher capacity for a given volume. In other words, at some capacity, a Li-ion or LiPo battery will always be smaller than a LiFePO4 battery.
Still, you should keep in mind that consumer electronics and car accessories assume different voltage values. The milliamp rating of power banks is usually based on a voltage of 3.7V. This means for a 10,000 mAh battery, the total capacity is 10,000mAh x 3.7V / 1,000 = 37Wh. By way of comparison, the Power Magic Ultra Battery has a capacity of 6,000mAh at 12.8V, which translates into 76.8Wh.
You must check your Ultra Battery model. B-124 is compatible with 12V systems only, while the B-124X is compatible with 12V and 24V. The Power Magic Expansion Battery is compatible with either model. However, B-124 won’t work with 24V systems.
An easy way to determine which Ultra battery model you have is to check the connectors at the back. The B-124X model has a USB port, while B-124 does not.
