The APC Charge Mobile battery box comprises a total of three cables: Three-pin power cable, two-pin cable and a USB cable.
First things first, customers are required to plug the three-pin power cable into the output AC port on the battery and connect it to the corresponding port on the Surface Hub.
Secondly, customers need to plug the two-pin cable into the output DC port on the battery and connect it to the port on the device.
In the end, customers then need to connect the USB cable between the battery and the Hub.
For charging, customers need to connect the Surface Hub power cable to the input AC port on the battery and plug it into a power outlet. On the back of the battery, there are lights to indicate the charge status.
“Customers using the battery can also take advantage of the latest Windows 10 Team edition update that includes a battery charge indicator. The update is included as part of Automatic Updates on Surface Hub 2S.”
