    Battery for Galileo Gen 2

    doorleyr

      Hi,

      There has been some discussion in previous threads about how to provide battery power to a Galileo and some people seemed to have had success using an external cell phone charger. However, these discussions were in relation to the first generation Galileo board which needed 5V @ 3A. The gen 2 board, however, requires 7-15V. The charger which came with mine provides 12V @ 1.5A = 18W. So, I guess if a 9V supply is used, it must supply up to 2A etc.

       

      External battery banks which provide greater than 5V are much less common and tend to be bulky and/or expensive. Has anyone found a reasonably priced (<EUR50) battery supply which can provide enough power for a Galileo gen 2? Or some other way of achieving the same outcome?

       

      Thanks,

      Ronan
