Fonera Battery Pack or Car-Adaptor

go back to the La Fonera article.

Please put all information you will find out about this new topic here!

You can use every Car USB Charger (5V Output) and connect it to La Fonera or build it yourself with a LM7805 voltage regulator and a little heatsink. With one of this circuits you can power the fonera with batteries which have more than 6Volts. You can even use a LiIon battery and a stepup circuit. (or power la fonera from the inside without the 3,3V regulator)

For those willing to take the LiIon approach, make sure you get a battery with built-in battery protection, which prevents the battery from bursting in flames (literally) when shorted, over or under-charged. It is also better to get a proper LiIon charger, which will work within the safe parameters of the battery.
