    Simple or Hardwired Installation

    Power Magic Ultra Battery supports two installation modes and automatically adapts its charging current accordingly.

    Simple installation

    Just plug the battery into the cigarette lighter socket of your vehicle. Charging current: 5A – Charging time: approx. 90 minutes.

    Hardwired installation

    For the fastest charging speed, connect the battery to the fuse panel. Charging current: 9A – Charging time: approx. 50 minutes.

    2V/24V compatibility and USB power outlet

    Use in any vehicle. Charge your accessories.

    12V/24V compatibility:the Power Magic Ultra Battery (B-130X) supports both 12V and 24V electrical systems. This means it is compatible with most individual and commercial or heavy-duty vehicles on the market. 

    5V USB (2A max): with its USB power output, you can charge any accessory, such as a phone or a Wi-Fi hotspot to keep your Cloud dashcam connected while in Parking Mode.

    Check detailed battery info from your phone

    • Connect wirelessly to the Power Magic Ultra Battery with the BlackVue App.
    • When charging, the app displays charge percentage, charging voltage, and expected remaining time until full charge.
    • When vehicle ignition is off, the app shows the remaining Parking Mode time based on the dashcam’s power consumption.
    • Fuel Gauge IC: the fuel gauge integrated circuit keeps track of electric currents—charge, and discharge—over time, to give you the most accurate battery info.

    FAQs

     

    1. How to wire the Ultra Battery?

    The Ultra Battery can be either connected to a cigarette lighter-type power socket or hardwired to your vehicle’s fuse panel. When hardwired, the B-130X is able to draw up to 9A of power, versus 5A when plugged in using the cigarette lighter power adapter. Therefore, hardwiring is recommended to enable the fastest charging time. Note: unlike its predecessors (B-124 and B-124X), which have a Cigarette | OFF | Hardwire switch which must be matched to, B-130X has anON/OFFswitch and automatically adapts its power draw (charging current) to the wiring method. 

    2. Is this battery different from a regular power bank?

    Yes indeed! The Ultra Battery is powered by 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 can sustain more extreme temperatures, and more charge cycles and are also more environment-friendly.

    3. I have this 10,000 mAh power bank that is much smaller than this 7,500 mAh battery. What gives? 

    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 the same capacity, a LiFePO4 battery is bigger than a Li-ion or LiPo battery. However, consumer electronics and car accessories generally 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 7,500mAh at 12.8V, which translates to 96Wh.

    4. Can I use Power Magic Ultra Battery in a commercial truck (24V)?

    Yes. B-130X is compatible with 12V and 24V systems

    5. Can I bring the Power Magic Ultra Battery on a plane?

    Yes, in carry-on luggage, in theory. But since batteries can be sensitive items to bring on an airplane, check with your local operator to be on the safe side. According to the IATA (International Air Transport Association) spare batteries under 100Wh can be carried on a plane in carry-on luggage–NOT in checked luggage–like most lithium batteries, without requiring the operator’s approval.
