A Battery (RLACS290) is available for use with Performance Box Touch, allowing you to use the unit without connecting to a power source. When installed, the Power button on the battery can be used to turn the unit on or off; to turn on or off, press and hold the Power button for a few seconds.
If the power cable is plugged into the unit when the battery is already attached to the unit, the unit will automatically turn on.
The battery will provide a minimum of 6 hours of battery life, however you can increase battery life to up to 9 hours by using minimum brightness settings.
Full battery specifications are available here.
The battery is connected to Performance Box Touch using the Richter mounting system on the rear of the unit. Insert the prongs from the back of the battery in to the rear of Performance Box Touch and then push upwards to secure.
