Re: Need help with a project idea

I'm swapping out the charging board with this one...

It can charge a lipo battery and power boost from 3.7V to 5V

Re: RaspStation 1

Pretty much complete... just waiting on a USB to sata adapter and a micro hdmi extension cable because I'm not happy with how tight the right-angle connector is in the port and that it's interfering with the USB C power connector. PS I found out that not all USB cable manufacturers stick to the whit...

Re: Need help with a project idea

Well, spot the obvious mistake in my wiring to the pi.

Anyway spotted it, sorted it out, wired and put everything together and the USB is not detected so definitely needs 5v. I've got a power boost on order.

Fitment is pretty good otherwise considering everything I managed to squeeze into there.

Re: Need help with a project idea

I have a query whether the whole lot including the controller can be powered fr...

Powering USB controller from 3.7V

Hi, I've got a query for a new build. I'm intending to power a USB Xbox controller from the pi zero, which itself will be powered from a 3.7V 1350mAh lipo battery. I.e. will the controller work with only 3.7V? The rumble packs have been removed so its only the controller buttons and circuitry left w...

RaspStation 1

My new build is a PS1 with 4GB RPi 4B inside. It uses 3D printed parts bought from eBay for the front controller ports, HDMi port, audio ports and power port as well as an infill for the CD laser and a cradle for the RPi and cooling fan. It's a WIP - probably 90% complete. What I've done so far is c...

Re: Introducing - GBA SP Zero

Just so everyone knows I took him up on the offer and when time permits I will work on this project. Although the LCD seems to be SPI I will try to get it working as DPI in the end build. That's fantastic Helder. If you can get a commercial product sorted (you're the best person to accomplish this)...

I've had good luck with increasing the hole size a little at a time then fitting in the PCb to be sure I'm still centered. Its slow but saved me from a shell replacement last time.
That was the best way and what I did on my second attempt after going gung-ho and messing it up the first time.

Looks great! I've built a couple Freeplay Zeros and yea the X & Y buttons were a pain each time.
Thanks.

I even used the supplied hole drilling guide (hot glued to the front shell so it wouldn't move) and realised after drilling that one of the holes in the guide was off by about 0.5 to 1mm.
