How Many Maker Tools Can You Run from an Emergency Backup Battery
In this (sponsored) Make: video, Caleb Kraft wanted to know how many machines (3D printers, CNC cutter, sewing machine, vinyl cutter) he could run off of an emergency backup battery. The sponsor, Geneverse, provided him with a 2400WH/2200W backup system.
The power he was able to get from his tests makes him confident that you could run a small outdoor maker event all day with one or two of these systems.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
