Tagged: Battery; 3.5 Screen

How about a portable power supply that will power both the RPi3 and 3.5 Adafruit screen. I have tried 2 portable batteries now and neither seems to provide enough power. Re4sonPi works fine on laptop USB power though. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Looked for the specs for the battery in the project notes and didn’t see any? Thanks

I’m powering mine with a couple of Mi 16000:

That is me. The do work good however, I wish I had some more amps because I am running three usb radios and charging and tethering a cell for inet. I also wish the supported pass through so I can use and charge at same time. Still quite pleased!
Without the cell phone, they work great.

Thank you Re4son & Clive,
I will check out both power supplies. I plug it into a laptop USB and everything works great. On Battery Pi is good but no video. Thank you for the reply guys!

Follow up on discussion. So I went to check out both batteries; I finally decided to go with the Anker mainly because of the size. And low and behold they have a new 13000 model which offers 3 AMPs; same size as 10000 but more juice!! Got it in and it works Great. Thanks gentlemen!

Hi…I have seen a number of rechargeable USB power packs, which I had been considering. My main issue now is knowing how long the battery will hold up when running the RPII do have a portable solar solution planned, but will need a rechargeable battery pack for when the great british weather strikes.Is there a rule of thumb on how long a battery will last based on the mah capacity?

I actually have a PiJuice on another device. But I have been able to figure out how to install the software yet on the Kali-Pi distro. I am going straight off the GitHub instruction. But I keep getting an error saying the application can not be found. I you have the secret or a workaround please share. Also do you have pictures of your setup with the PiJuice installed. It was hard to find a good case that would fit with the PiJuice installed.
