Re: Donate 100 raspberry pi to a school in need.

What a kind and generous offer, I’m sure some one from the Raspberry Pi Foundation will PM you.

Re: Solar powered Nas

Just to amend my last post should read: 5Amp charge controller :oops: Another point that may be of interest I’ve checked the voltage and current draw from my solar system that’s supping the Pi which also includes the losses of the phone charger (12v to 5v) and it is 13.88 Volts 0.2 Amps = 2.78 W loa...
