[SALE] Retro PSU, a 3.5A Output capable Boost Board

Post by Helder » Sun Aug 05, 2018 4:46 pm

Hey everyone I have been working on a better PSU for all the pi projects people build and we all use 1 of the 2 widely used boards to power our projects (the PowerBoost 1000C or the Generic Chinese ones) but they are no longer as useful as they once were.

These new boards all require 2A or more to work properly like the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and the other Pi clones like Banana Pi and Orange Pi which has led me to develop my own power board that can meet these requirements and then some. The 2 other boards just don't have the chops to handle these newer boards and not only them but the other peripherals such as HDMI LCDs and other usb devices.


Features:
  • 97% efficiency at full battery charge (4.2v)

  • 93-95% efficiency at 3.3v to 3.6v battery charge

  • Outputs up to 3.5A @ 5.20v

  • Small Size of 23.5mm x 34mm (slightly smaller than the PowerBoost 1000C)

  • Optional Enable Pin to turn off the boost portion just like the PowerBoost series boards from Adafruit

  • Charge/Charged LEDs with optional pads to mount LEDs elsewhere for customization

  • TP4056 1A charge IC to charge the battery

  • ADS1015 to do battery monitoring ala mintyPi Battery Monitoring Script using the I2C pads (Thanks HoolyHoo for the work on it)

  • ADS1015 can also support an Analog Stick so that option in on the board as well and software is released below (big thanks to Othermod on his analog stick code and Bluup for integrating everything into the software)

  • Multiple Outputs , 2 to be exact so you can run wires to multiple devices (use 24AWG to get the full amperage!)

  • Multiple Inputs, Micro USB to recharge the battery and input pads if you want to solder to another usb port like on the Shell of a GB

Price $25!! plus $5 shipping WorldWide and paypal fees (a little over $1)

Wermy is testing some other boards and has also tested the Pi 3 B+ with a 7 inch HDMI lcd and has had no issues from a 4000mAh battery. He even tested the Odroid XU4 and it ran for a short time but that thing requires close to 4A to run reliably, we plan to test 2 of the PSU board linked up to possibly power this beast.

Banana Pi and Orange Pi boards have also been tested and work fine.

I just want everyone to know the Estimated delivery to me from the factory is a 4-6 weeks, so I'd say mid to late September you will start getting email notifications of the shipments. It's usually sooner but you never know how things go.

An analog stick, you can use a PSP or 3DS analog stick for controls without the need for an MCU. Software will be released soon for it and I will show it off.
