rtlsdr v3 + raspberry 3 + powerbank

Post by Jekko » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:03 pm

Hello, i have an rtlsdr v3, and a raspberry pi 3b+ with the case and the little cooling fan.


I would like to use the rtlsdr v3 via tcp without connecting the raspi the electrical line so i am thinking to buy a power bank.


Which powerbank should i use to make the raspi work with the rtlsdr v3 for at least two hours?


Thank you all

bye

The largest one that you can find, but make absolutely sure that the powerbank is capable or supplying 3A or more. The Pi3 needs at least 3A.

So, if someone other would have the problem, i inform that i bought this powerbank

https://www.amazon.it/RAVPower-Batteria ... 01G5DQ946/

And it works with the raspi 3b+ and the dongle like a charm. Tonight i used it for three hours without any loss of power.

Hope it helps
