Ce guide explique comment fabriquer un "Ordinateur Portable" avec un Raspberry Pi zero, une batterie d'iphone et quelques modules electroniques

Step 1: Material

Step 2: 3D Printing

EN

Get the 3D files on thingiverse : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3201105

I printed the files in clear ABS (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/abs-3d-printer-filamen... ) with a Anet A8 printer.

FR

Téléchargez et imprimez les fichiers sur thingiverse : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3201105

J'ai personnellement imprimé les pièces en ABS transparent (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/abs-3d-printer-filamen... ) avec une Anet A8.

Step 3: Soldering

EN

  • Solder the "USB cable" to "the +/- OUT of the Step UP module" (Set the module to 5V BEFORE plugin the Raspberry)
  • Solder the "battery +" to the "battery +" of the charger/protection board
  • Solder the "battery -" to "one pin of the switch"
  • Solder the "other pin of the switch" to "the battery -" of the charger/protection board
  • Finally solder the "+/- OUT of the charger/protection board" to the "+/- IN of the step UP module"

When all the connections are made :

  • Place the battery in the battery case

  • Add the battery cover

  • Secure everything with epoxy resin

FR

  • Soudez le "Cable USB" aux "SORTIES +/- du module Step UP" (Régler le module sur 5V AVANT de le brancher dans le Raspberry pi)
  • Soudez le "+ de la batterie" sur la pin "battery +" du circuit de charge/protection
  • Souder le "- de la batterie" sur "une des pins de l'interrupteur"
  • Soudez "l'autre pin de l'interrupteur" sur la pin "battery -" du circuit de charge/protection
  • Enfin, soudez les pins "+ et - OUT du circuit de charge/protection" sur le "+/- IN du module Step UP"

Une fois toutes les connections effectuées :

  • Placez la batterie dans le boitier
  • Ajoutez le battery cover
  • Fixez le tout a l'aide d'époxy

Step 4: Assembling

EN

Secure all the part with epoxy as shown in the picture

FR

Fixez toutes les pièces comme présenté dans les photos

Step 5: DONE

You can now close the box an do what you want with the Raspberry pi.

Vous pouvez maintenant fermer la boite et faire ce que vous voulez avec le Raspberry pi.

    That's a good question !
    The device is not able to show the status of the battery (but the battery module will prevent the battery from over discharge).
    It should be possible to connect a small analog to digital converter on the GPIO of the Raspberry :D
