Power unit for stand alone WiPy

Post by hotcore » Wed Jun 15, 2016 9:46 am

I'd like to use a WiPy stand-alone (not connected to computer or mains power adapter).
What possibilities do I have? Battery pack (but no (multiple) batteries deliver 5V).
TIA,
hotcore

Power packs for mobile devices are available in many variants and capacities up to 25 Ah. The have an USB output and micro USB input for charging. Easy to handle, widely available, very affordable.

Hi Roberthh,
of course! Simple answer. I was thinking of the "old way" of loading some batteries into a separate pack. But this is *much* easier!
Thx very much!
