    asus transformer backup battery

    Hi, does anyone know of any backup battery for asus transformer tablet. I searched the web and could only find backup batteries for samsung tablets and transformer prime. If you have tried any backup battery that worked for transformer tablet, could you post the information? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Backup battery as in a replacement battery ?

    The battery is non-removable without dismantling the full tablet - the dock has an extra battery which more or less doubles the battery charge time

    If it works for the Prime, it should work for the TF, they use the same charger port.

    For the ultimate battery, grab a car battery, take a USB cable and connect the RED wire to the + and the BLACK to the - on the battery. Plug the TF charger cable in and you will have probably about a 100-300 hours of use before it all dies.

    I am also looking for an external battery for the TF101. Since the charger outputs 12v 1.2 a, I'm thinking a battery with 5v 1a will suffice, but won't charge TF101 as quickly. I've also seen iPad external batteries that output 2.1A, but I'm thinking this will overload and damage the TF101. Thoughts?

    I have used an iPad charger for testing on my TF101. It works fine, but does not show charging, and does not even maintain the charge level when you are using the device. The iPad charger will charge the device at a rate of about 10% per hour with the screen off.

    It will work if you can put your device down for a while to charge, but for continuous use it will not do that much for you.

    This little beast throws out 3.5 amps and it might be worth contacting the manufacturers to check on suitability as the TFP could well see this level of input as being equal to the mains charger. Veho Pebble Pro 13200mAh Portable Battery for Laptops: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
