I have a Cellink Pro (which came out at around the same time as the cellink-b)
was wondering if the cellink NEO extended pack is compatible with it ?

Sorry to bump this, but i have a hard time getting the info.
The manufacturer (Egen) is not replying to me and several french sellers do not seem to have the answer.

I could just order one from amazon and try, but prefer to be sure before .

@BlackboxMyCar , you guys usually know EVERYTHING right ? :)

While the Cellink Pro and Neo 9 isn't sold here in the USA, I am almost certain that the Neo extension pack will work for it. This is based off of a few things. The extended batteries just contain a BMS and LiFePO4 cells configured 4 in series to get the 12.8 volts nominal and 14.6/14.8 volts fully charged and a one or more rows in parallel to get the desired capacity or safe current charge and input ratings (this don't matter to much on dashcams loads).

I built my own nearly 12 Amp hour extended battery for my Neo/Neo 6 battery using a BMS and 32700 LiFePO4 cells in a 4s2p configuration https://dashcamtalk.com/forum/threa...1-7-w-h-extension-battery-for-under-50.38889/ I also made a different extension using an Amazon 20 Ah battery pack. This used prismatic LiFePO4 cells in a 4s1p config and contained it's own BMS. I literally just added an XT60 connector the the battery and all was well. Of course I disassembled it and tested it prior to putting it in my car. I've also assisted some via PM to get similar batteries to work. They have MUCH more capacity at a fraction of the price of the Neo extended batteries.

Thanks!
yes i'm sure it's much cheaper building one yourself.. but I'm far from handy... and also quite lazy ;-)

BTW; how would the app work in this case ? will it give me nifo about the cellink PRO as well or only the expansion pack ?

You would need to add the capacity of the battery pack you are adding to the existing capacity in the software.
