ROCKPro64 Battery Power Supply
#1
For quite awhile now I’ve been looking for a suitable battery to run this SBC. I’ve seen several posts which helped determine that it can’t be powered by usb-c, or the onboard lithium battery port. I don’t know much about electricity, but there has to be a solution to run the unit without plugging into the wall. My MacBook Air runs & charges off usb-c, and it seems it would need much more power than an SBC. It also seems very inefficient to run an expensive battery bank to go from DC - AC - DC. I’m also not going to carry a 12V car battery around in my backpack.

Has anyone found a solution to battery power the RP64? I will run headless, so no additional accessories are needed (except for onboard or usb Wi-Fi adapter).

Power Input: 12V 3A or 5A type M 5.5mm OD/2.1mm ID barrel type DC Jack Power Supply.
