The BattBorg is a plug and play power converter for your Raspberry Pi which allows you to power the Raspberry Pi with batteries! It's great for robot projects, or where you need to leave you Pi unmanned for extended periods without a wired power source (outside sensor projects etc.)
The BattBorg uses a highly efficient (~90%) OKI78SR DCDC converter which has a maximum 1.5A output and, due to it's efficiency, requires no heatsink. It will work with most batteries/battery packs that are between 7-36V so it's great for 12V car batteries, 8xAA battery packs, and so on.
BattBorg comes in serveral different kits. This purchase is for the Full Soldered Kit, which includes a fully assembled BattBorg, one 8 x AA battery holder, and the cables to hook it all up. Just add your Raspberry Pi, and batteries, and you're ready to roll!
