Powering with battery

3 posts in this topic

Hi everybody :)

I'd like to supply the Papilio Pro (with the Retrocade MegaWing) with a battery.
Do I have to solder two cables next to the USB port ?
Which voltage would you recommand ? 4.5V ? 6V ? 9V ?

Thanks

I would recommend that you get a rechargeable USB battery pack like this one on eBay (then you just plug in the usb connection and don't worry about soldering):

Otherwise, you can use the PWRIN pins next to the USB jack, you will need to provide 4.5-5V.

 

Jack.
