For project with mobility, Raspberry Pi of-course needs an Battery to live it. How to calculate battery capacity? How long the battery can last?

Nowadays, phone power bank is popular with various type. In additional, it feeds 5VDC via USB port which is suitable for Raspberry port, also it includes charger which easily charge when battery is run out. So, using phone power bank is a good choice for Raspberry board.


Phone power bank will have capacity with unit mAh. Let's choose one power bank: 5VDC 10,000mAh
How long this battery can feed Raspberry?
Example, Raspberry Pi 2 B is used -> this board will need 5VDC 800mA at every single time
In this example, battery is 5VDC 10,000mAh -> it means battery can supply power 5VDC with current 800mA in time: 10,000mAh / 800mA = 12.5h (over 12 hours!)

So, to extend battery life time: use phone power bank with higher capacity (mAh), reduce power consumption of Raspberry by stop using Wifi dongle, USB camera, GPIO, monitor or touch screen.

One more thing in mobility project like remote car with camera, to make it live 24/24, it'd better to make an Wireless charger for battery. In idle time, Raspberry should stay at one location for charging, when needed, it will go depend on user. After finish mission, it should go back for charging (idle)

There are several models of Raspberry Pi which is summarized in below tables. Because of reasons: small size, low price, easy for program (linux environment), GPIO support, Internet communication, monitor or touch screen connection, Raspberry Pi has been chosen for DIY project, or just low cost entertainment...

  1. [Last Chance] Do this to bring any old battery back to life - just like new

    Hi

    I’m not sure if you saw my last email but time is running out on this…

    There’s a new way to bring nearly any type of old battery back to life ...so it’s just like new again.

    This method works with nearly ANY type of battery out there ...and it’s simple and quick.

    But today may be your last chance to learn how to do this simple method…

    >> Click Here To Watch a Presentation that will show you how this is now possible <<

    In the presentation, you’ll learn how to bring car, phone, and laptop batteries back to life.

    This simple methods even works with solar/off-grid, marine, golf cart, and forklift batteries. Plus, many more!

    >> Click here to learn how to bring your batteries back to life again <<

    With this secret method, you won’t have to buy new expensive batteries anymore. You can just recondition your old, used batteries and save money!

    So really …don’t miss out on seeing this. This presentation may have to come down within the next hour.

    >> Watch It Here (while you still can) <<

    Best Regards,
    Kevin Day

    P.S. You learn why Tom can’t teach everyone how to bring their old, dead batteries back to life again in the new presentation. The end of the presentation is pretty shocking too…

    So if you want to learn how to bring nearly ANY dead battery back to life again – then watch the presentation (before Tom has to take it down): >> Click Here To Watch The Presentation <<
