Wearable 5 V 9 A power supply? Answered
So I am making an electronic t-shirt with a very bright screen that gobbles up amps. At it's probable peak usage it will be using 9 amps (or 8.697, but I always feel safer sizable margin of error). Luckily this will only be at its peak for a few seconds (at most 10 seconds, probably less) when it starts up. Next it will use between 4.5 to 3 amps continuously, and later will be using closer to 1 amp. All of this is at 5 volts, and I will be stepping down from 7.4 volts. As if this wasn't hard enough this is battery powered, so good efficiency would be nice. I want to minimize the amount of power lost. Is there a power supply that can do all this and still be wearable?
In short, I need a wearable 5 volt power supply that can provide a few seconds of 9 amps and 4.5 amps continuously.
Thanks Everybody! For people who find this in the future, here’s from saving you from having to read through all the posts…
In the end I found the answer to my problems was cutting the peak amps it needed to consume it half, bringing it down to around 5 amps. What I ended up choosing was the R-745.0P power supply. Look at the last page of the datasheet for clarification on how to wire it, and when it comes. The mpilchfamily thread talks about safety, which is important and worth reading if you want to know about it. I wasn't sure on whether or not I should go with the R-745.0P and all the supporting components or the UBEC 2-5S, which is an all in one package. I chose the R-745.0P but it’s up to you!
