As a few of you know I like to field charge, and bought a lovely 70ah leisure battery, weighing in at a whopping 24kg… Lovely (@yith s arm can attest to the weight of that!) So was looking at alternatives, and got my hands on a 30aH LifePO4 one (LiFePO4 12V 30Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery | ECO-WORTHY), LOT lighter (3.5kg ish), though just under a half of the capacity, but plenty none the less for a days flying and recharging. So need something to carry it in (Kingmann Mega Tool Box + Free 13" Toolbox Set | Decorating, DIY) the larger one of these two). OK, nice to have some XT60’s on it (Male XT60E Panel Mount Gold Plated Connector 20A Amass | eBay lovely…) how about some small voltage displays (bingo https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07D59NZGW), and some switches… (yummy https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07XK1LRXY). Some USB ports be nice too, all portable boxes have USB ports (bonza! https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07ZH2QVSH).
I always wanted a 3d printer to print enclosures for electrical projects. Little did I know that it’d be drones that got me to buy one, but now my original need is satisfied. Some inserts to stop the battery sliding around, and a nice little box to put all the bits and bobs in! Dremmel your toolbox, and here ya go!
Yes maybe I could have bought one hey… But where’s the fun in that?!
I have a 5V output on the red button (BEC inside), and the blue button just shows the battery voltage…
Anyways, if someone’s bored and wants portable power… Also so much more portable, lol
