The Sony Vaio Z Series is a line of laptop computers for home and business use. You have two options for powering your Sony Vaio Z Series laptop: the AC adaptor or a battery pack. The battery pack allows you to use the laptop when a power outlet is not convenient. In time the battery will hold less of a charge and power your Vaio for a shorter amount of time. Sony sells replacement batteries for Vaio laptop computers you can use to increase the amount of time you can use the computer without the AC adaptor.
