Portable USB Powered Pi. SSilver2k2 writes –

So I’ve been working on my portable Raspberry Pi gaming / uber machine. I posted before about using the small 2inch Adafruit LCD display, powered through the GPIO pins. I was trying to find a good way to power the Pi and borrowed a friends Duracell USB battery charger. It will power the Pi, but not the LCD screen.
