Cube4 external power

Post by distantcam » Sat Jun 22, 2013 4:01 am

What would be the best way to power a Cube4 with a battery pack?

I noticed the board has an extra +5v/gnd connection, but I'm not sure if I can just plug a battery pack straight into that without a voltage regulator.

Cheers

Or you could get some of the portable 5V USB battery pack - e.g. Sony USB Portable Power Chargers (http://store.sony.com/p/Sony-Portable-U ... n/p/CPF2LS).

At 7000mAh it should be good for a a few hours.
