Raspberry Pi – Battery Pack and Solar Charger

This is another case for your raspberry pi built by cottonpickersplace which has a built-in battery pack and solar charger enabling you to place your pi in a location where you can not get a mains supply to, all you need to do is supply a wireless usb adapter or a 3G usb modem and you can put your pi anywhere.

Includes the following features
* Switch so you don’t have to keep pulling the lead out to switch it off (but switching it off won’t stop the batteries being charged)
* Blue LED so you can see when the batteries are being charged by the sun
* USB Socket so you can charge other USB devices like phones. Add $5 or £3 if you need added Apple circuitry to charge ipods/phones/pads
* USB Lead, so in winter you can just plug the lead in to a USB socket to charge the batteries (won’t fully charge them this way) and run the pi when the batteries are flat and there’s no sun
