Re: Battery power

<t>To answer other questions here about packaged emergency chargers for phones.<br/> <br/> They run off 3.7v li ion cells and use a circuit known as a jeule thief that uses an transistor and coil to boost voltage level which settles at max output of whatever it is plugged into. Some use a diode on t...

Re: PiCard - GUI SD Preparation Tool

<t>Expecting depletion of individual cells to deplete below 1.0v as 4 AA will stop working at 1.2v for a 5v circuit battery total will drop below 5v.<br/> <br/> 1.0 v is what most devices stop working on depending on circuit. Then you need a jeule theif to get them down to 0.3v.<br/> <br/> This circ...

Re: PiCard - GUI SD Preparation Tool

Simple fix. On the root.

sudo fdisk-l in the code it will popup admin login password. Also won"t need root password just user pass as su stands for Super User and grants root access to standard user when used in that way.

Re: PiCard - GUI SD Preparation Tool

Hi all.

Had a quick scan over all the posts on here.
Just have one question to ask.

Does the pi have the ability to boot from usb drive/stick/hdd?
