Hey BadBert. Just posted an update on the Li-Po I just ordered in the other thread...
Fair warning, it took about three weeks for it to get to me here in the States. Granted I ordered it on a Sunday...

Cheers! My second build is getting started too...overlapping my incomplete first!

I ordered the lipo that @RetroRocket tested :) that should give the 2nd GBZ enought playtime.

got my USB hub in the mail and my banggood power unit.

For a test i rewired my first gbz GB screen, to see if the picture quality would be good enough.... but i am going with the HDMI screen for my 2nd build :P

I know this takes some tinkering, but i like the challenge :P
I am going to order the screen soon!

Using the HDMI is a hassel. But it took me about 4 weeks. And the HDMI is a good thing. A verry nice screen. Good luck BadBert. And show us some nice screenshots.

Do you know how much current the hdmi screen draws?

Thanks! What about the screen does it get warm or hot too with a touch?
