Re: Anyone found a 2cell lipo charging module?

Wow, ok.. lets starter up. Generally, you don't boost it to 8.4V unless you're charging in a series, Which for lipos is bad. because load balancing. a single 5v source can charge a 7.4v lipo, because it charges both cells individually at the 4.2v or so. you're generally not charging them in series. ...

Re: Anyone found a 2cell lipo charging module?

You'd think there'd be a market for these for hobbiest. There's dozens of different single cell charger modules, but i have seen a single multi cell charger. Infact, i see no reason why a multi-cell charger can't charge off USB, using 2x 3.7V 1A charging modules combined into one. I know this can be...

I need help looking for a small 2 cell lipo charging module. There a lots of options for 2S+ lipo chargers, but i'm looking for a module that i could fit inside of a project. I'll be using a 7.4V 6Ah-8Ah lipo battery pack, but i need a way to charge it. Was hoping for 1-2A charge rate, 2 would obvio...

Re: Can the Raspberry Pi 3 Emulate PS2?

I think the pi3 or maybe the next pi series, could probably handle PS2, but very poorly. It would definitely need to take advantage of the 64bit. I'd keep an eye out for an android version first. Generally you'll see an android version before you see a version for the pi. Also once there's the andro...

That looks amazing. I love the work you did on those boards. If you use a dremel, some snips and some pliers you can free up a bit more space in the battery compartment.

Re: Gameboy Pi

A Pi Zero is the better choice tbh for normal retro emulators, you won't get solid n64 or anything, but you'll do better with the power consumption and size. Also a pi-zero is smaller so you can fit a bigger/thicker battery. For a diet Pi2, you can desolder the connectors. I used a hot air rework st...

Re: PiBoy Advance

2500 mAh isn't enough. Here's why. (wall of text warning) My gameboy uses a 4000mAh battery with a pi2, and it gets 2.5hours at most. And the pi3 takes even more current, so you'd get even less, maybe 90-100minutes at 4000mAh. A 2500mAh battery, and you're looking at like.. 45 minutes tops. (3.7v ->...

The teensy 2.0 may not be required if you don't need analog, you can use the pi's GPIO for simple buttons. I'd probably suggest the Teensy LC low-cost over the 2.0 n...

hence the quotes. A friend and i are debating the future price of the pi3, because of the words "RASPBERRY PI 3 ON SALE NOW AT $35"

I'm confident it will stay at $35, but she insists it'll go way up. So i'm trying to get some confirmation.

Re: Teensy Boards

The Teensy 2.0 would work for what you need. The teensy ++ 2.0 might be overkill but gives expandability. If you use the teensy 3.2, just feed the 3.3v into the 5v of the joystick. The 5v is more or less just the voltage in on the joystick, you can use less than 5v. But don't use 5v on the joystick ...

Sometimes it's easier to style with a clone controller, like instead of an actual sega saturn controller, use a usb clone that looks the same.
