AA Saver to power Chip Small Linux Board

Postby anovischi » Wed Jul 20, 2016 4:43 am

Hi,

Is it possible to create a version of AA Saver to power Chip Small Linux board ?

http://docs.getchip.com/chip.html

I think it needs 5V but 500 mAh at peak times.

Perhaps more AA batteries would be needed, 3 or 4 ?

But I wonder if it possible and what would be the cost, for small orders (for 1,2 pieces) and what would be the cost or larger orders ( > 10).

Thank you,
Adrian

500mA is quite high and I am doubtful that AASaver can drive it. You can parallel connect the outputs from two AASavers together to increase the current output. However, if you have 4 batteries, you actually won't need AASaver anymore because 4 batteries can provide 6V and all you need is a low-dropout regulator (or even more crudely a 1N4001 diode) to drop it to about 5V.
