Watch Battborg Powers A Raspberry Pi From Batteries for 14 hours and 30 minutes @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Thanks so much Claire for sending this in!
Powering the Raspberry Pi from batteries for 14 hours and 30 minutes!
This time lapse video was taken with a Contour+2 on one shot per 30 seconds picture mode, which gave approximately 1750 images.
The battery pack consists of 8x GP2700 rechargeable AA batteries. It’s powering a Raspberry Pi model B+
In this test it lasted approximately 14 hrs 30 minutes. The screensaver runs at approx 22FPS and has an approximate load of 15% on the Raspberry Pi.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
