Raspberry Pi Runtime on Battery

4 07 2012

In a previous post, I mentioned the battery pack I bought from our local Aldi store “Tevion MPP 7400” – portable 7400mAh Li-Po Battery Pack. After many questions of “how long will it run” – I decided to find out.

I ran the Pi on this with the USB Wireless NIC & USB->Serial Console cable until it ran no more – and to my surprise, this nearly ran for 11 hours straight.

10hrs 55minutes to be exact

 22:17:01 up 10:55,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05

Sooooo – with that runtime – it should give plenty of portable time on target between charges.
