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
Live diagnostics via USB A
- Cell temperature
- Cell voltage
- Input current
- State of charge
- Cycle count
- Output voltages
- Input voltage
Certifications: CE, FCC, RoHS
- Additional information: Duckietown library
Shipped in timely manner. Works as expected. Was only surprised it arrived pretty much "empty" (no LED indicator at all) but charged to full over night. Wonder what the standby/storage self discharge or circuit idle consumption is and if I have to watch and keep it charged when not using for a longer time? Deep discharge is no good for it.
I had missing parts that the project store supplied when they didn’t have to do so. I’m a happy customer.
Fun project, excellent products, excellent support system, greatly appreciate what you are doing
