It has ran for 1 (24 hours) already, and the battery dropped from … 4542 unit to 4187. At (or below)3700 it will be considered at 0%.
And it still have some 90% juice left …
What am I going to do with this 2,600 mah stuff? This is absolutely overkill. (at least 15x from the 175-ish original battery)
Uh … do we have a Tamagotchi here? Or do I have to write my own?
I don’t really have time to write my own, although I kind of want to.
Too many projects. I still have a driving stuff, the game pack, a side-scrolling space shooter and others.
AND the Asteroid update.
in case say you get buried under some rubble in earthquake (such as folks in California as of today, hope that they are not hit hard), you have this sound-emitting stuff that will work for more than 96 hours. Also is flashlight.
I think this is definitely one of those scenarios where if you have to ask, this isn’t for you :P
I used a 2,600mah battery in my first Arduino based game system (used an 8x8 bi-color dot matrix display and 4-digit 7-segment display) and it didn’t die until it accidentally got turned on in my backpack. The Arduboy seems to use about the same amount of power that thing used so I would guess you’re likely to see at least 100 hours under normal use. If you play something that’s pretty cpu intensive (maybe something like Starduino), or put it in flashlight mode (biggest battery drain) then you still have a flashlight that lasts for at least a solid 20 hours.
I am glad that you responded, but this thread had not been active for 10 months, so the forum consider it to be “dead”. Unless there is anything really important (there really aren’t), please don’t reply to it.
Because the original battery died and I had no replacement.
I now had a 450Mah, but that one is currently … powering a Palm V.
Now, to Tuxinator2009.
Interesting speculation. Although, what I really wanted is to give Arduboy a battery small enough, it won’t be a hassle (and dangerous thing) to put it in the pocket (or wallet) like it is designed to.
Having a unprotected 2,600 soft pack hanging bare is just too dangerous. Plus, battery contacts are really weak, too.
