Power for RPI3+isolater v1.2+Boos DAC

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am plannig to buy RPI3 + isolater v1.2 + Boos DAC.
Can the Shanti power them all 3?
I allready have a aSbooster with an output of 5V-1.5A
Or do i need additional power eg the battery pack with LIFEPO 18650?

thx

You can power the Pi from the isolator and then power the boss seperately so the answer is probably yes.  Take note of any required jumper settings though mentioned in the isolator manual.

 

You could use the 3a for the 'dirty' side then use the 1a for the boss if you found that 1a was not enough to power isolator & pi or vice versa..   The 3A requirement is a little generous imo but it may need this much depending on how much of the pi's resources you're using ie BT, WIFI, HDMI etc.

 

As a guide I'm running a PI 3b+ from a battery bank & the Katana stack on top from a 2.5a linear.  This is running picoreplayer with some underclocking and a few bits turned off, I never see any low power warnings & all is well, no sd probs, crashing etc..

Thanks.

So could i run the Pi with the battery pack with LIFEPO 18650?
How long will it last?


And the Boos DAC with Sbooster 5V-1.5A?
