These first set of experiments are designed so that we can gain an understanding about how batteries can power the raspberry pi and for how long.
Boy was I wrong!
After connecting all the components I found myself checking its uptime every few hours, just waiting for it to die off!
Turns out this baby did the trick, it ended up giving the raspberry Pi a total of 4 days uptime. Thats 96 hours, I’m really impressed.
Given the uptime this will give us more than enough power for it to be connected to solar, which will be the next experiment.
Ill be connect the solar panel and charge controller, and trying to waterproof them as best as I can. Ill post photos when its completed.
