Instructables member Creativity Buzz has created an awesome DIY Raspberry Pi pocket laptop system, equipped with a 7 Inch IPS HD display and powered by a 5600mAh battery pack. The small battery is capable of powering the Raspberry Pi laptop and screen for up to two hours on a single charge. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the build and how you can create your very own.
