Re: Safest charger for RPi

One of my Pi runs off a Duracell brand USB charger that has it's own lithium battery in it. It will keep the Pi up for ages if the power fails. Very cheap UPS solution.

You must be much younger than me to contemplate a 7" screen, I would need something much bigger to read text comfortably for long periods of time.

Re: Anyone have wifi dongle without external power?

I too have a Edimax EW7811UN and it works without a hub with 3 different PSUs powering the Pi, with no problems.

Re: Battery power problems

I didn't re-read the whole thread but that tends to suggest a regulator with lower drop-out would be required to use 6V as an input. there are such things around, I have some somewhere, I can check what they are if you get stuck.

Re: ModMyPi Raspberry Pi Cases

Got mine, it's pretty good, worth the money.

It's just a tiny bit loose inside the case (maybe .5mm) guess that allows for some variation in board size.

Re: Want a sneaky peek at a Model A?

The economics of using the cheaper component might be less compelling when faulty returns start happening. I,m sure school uses will find them not so durable .
Any prospect of allowing comunity members to get one of your spares to a suitable donation?

Re: Want a sneaky peek at a Model A?

Liz, Please review the decision to continue to use the friction sd card mounts. I am as nice as pi to mine but its not going to last 12 months without breaking.
