The Duckiebattery is a custom-designed smart power bank for robotics applications.
It is special because it can communicate to the connected computer (e.g., Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, etc.) via USB, enabling a number of autonomous behaviors.
Moreover, it is designed to provide continuous output in all operating conditions: in charge (for development), not in charge (for autonomous operations), when plugged in, when plugged out. Most power banks on the market will drop output voltage for a few milliseconds when plugged in/out, causing the robot to reset.
Dimensions: 62 x 100 x 24.5 mm
Weight: 189g (fully charged)
Capacity: 10 Ah at 3.7V (37Wh)
Charging: Micro USB 5V at up to 2A
- Outputs: 2x USB type A 5V at up to 4A combined
Protections: external voltage applied to outputs, input charge voltage, internal temperature, over-discharge, overcharge
Pass-through: one USB output will work while being charged
No reset on charger plug-in or plug-out: perfect for autonomous charging behaviors and transitions between development and testing
