Powering SBC (Single Board Computer)

There are several ways to power a robot. But, how do you power the onboard computer? Well, the easiest and most elegant solution is mobile power banks. These are readily available on Amazon or your nearest electronic store (including Walmart!). This particular unit featured in the video is powering a Rock Pi/X.

This Amazon Battery Pack boasts 25amps and can power the Rock Pi/x for almost 12 hours.

Single-board computers (SBCs) are powered with 5v from either USB, USB Micro, or USB-C connections. This high amperage battery pack style makes it an ideal solution to power any SBC. There is no need for soldering; all you have to do is connect a USB cable between the battery pack and SBC.
