Raspberry Pi Endeavors 3 – Battery and Other Components

My networking script has only restarted my networking adapter once since I got my new Edimax adapter, the log shows (I save the print statements to a text file now) it tried to ping Google twice, couldn’t, restarted the networking service, then was fine.

I also have my webcam displaying a live stream to a website, along with Nick’s too:

I have also got my Pi running on a mobile 12000mAh phone portable charger, which seems to power it for about 8 hours on its first run. The charger has a 1 and 2 amp output which is useful, and it charged by its own micro USB cable – the same one that I connect to the Pi to power it.

Also got some superbright LEDs – blue and white – for when our 4wd chassis’ eventually come, as well as some smaller breadboards and some resistors.

Just got an email this morning that Bizoner.com has finally processed our order of 4wd chassis’ so hopefully they will come next week.
