Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

...multiple nested quotes... Very interesting, I look forward to seeing if you manage to find a way to add a full-off switch, I may actually mod my dock if that's possible. While you're digging, maybe see if there's a reasonable method for disabling the power-dip on closing the screen? (The Pi gets...

I've got 5.06V out of the dock connector which I'm using to power the pi. My question was more towards the voltage across TP1 and TP2 on the pi ...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

What kind of voltages are you guys getting to the pi with this setup?
Right now I'm getting 4.74 from the lapdock battery. I used a couple extra adapters in my setup rather then splicing cables.
