Post portable battery pack.

Has anyone found a portable Battery pack that we can use on the TF? I have several that I have used for my iPhone and my old iPad2 but all are only 5v. is there one out there that can charge out TF or is the keyboard dock the only way to go for extra Battery?

There are several battery packs used for notebook computers that will work listed on Amazon. Just be sure they have a 12Volt output. EverReady had as battery pack that will also work but you will need an adapter provided by them. The key is that you need an output of 12 to 15 volts to charge the TF or Keyboard. You might read Devcake's post on a DIY charger for the TF as information on the voltages required to charge the TF. There is also a post on external batteries that might help.

I have an XP8000 from Energizer, and work perfectly.

You will need a conector for Asus (Willy cable WI15) from them. You will have two free tips a year for the life of product

The cable you note doesn't appear to connect directly to the Transformer.

What setup are you using to connect to the Transformer?

Thanks
