Back in Black – a DIY raspberry pi Boombox: Wire it Up – Power

Power The BinB boombox has a different power setup from the prototype - it can be battery powered or AC powered. If you want to run the boombox often on battery, the recommended choice is an SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) battery of good quality. These will usually add about 5 lbs/2.3kg to the boombox, and cost about $20USD and up, depending on amp hours.   Later, I found out these are of poor quality and can ...
