We have featured a number of amazing creations using the $35 Raspberry Pi mini PC, but this new portable version of the Raspberry Pi, using a low cost LCD TFT display, and 12v power supply, pushes the boundaries once again.
The new Portable Raspberry Pi has been created by SK Pang Electronics and features a QWERTY keyboard complete with touchpad and it owns portable power pack, which has all been mounted on to a transparent base with a carrying handle.
Its creator explains how he supplies the correct power supply to the LCD display: “The monitor requires a 12v input but the battery pack only gives out 5v. Inside the monitor there is a 5v regulator. This need to be by bypass and connect straight to the 5v line. The red supply wire is removed from the plug and soldered directly onto the 5v line.”
