Huh?  Try breaking up separate thoughts into separate sentences.

In any case, a switching power supply produces output power that is the
input power times the efficiency.  Or you can flip that around to say input
power is the output power divided by the efficiency.  Look at what power you
are using, divide that by the efficiency of the switching power supply, and
that's the power the battery is putting into the switching power supply.
