Battery Life Update

Remember this flashy hunk of lithium? MWeston has been testing it in the new prototype Pandora and has got some numbers for us! *Cue MWeston*

I have an EVM for the battery fuel gauge so I can connect that to my laptop and log the battery draining from start to finish through the USB port so it doesn’t matter if the Pandora board shuts down on its own when the battery is empty. I still haven’t done a full charge to empty cycle all at once but the fuel gauge learns the battery profile and was predicting the usual 8.5-9 hours. Since I have run the battery down over a couple of days with my testing, the prediction is accurate as the battery capacity is at or above the rating given by the manufacturer.

Pandora’s Box?

Craig has posted an interesting poll on the forums. He asks us if we would be interested in a “Pandora Cube”. Identical hardware to the Pandora (bar the keyboard, speakers and screen) . You would have to plug in your own controllers and what not, but Craig sees it working as a home entertainment system. He quotes a rough price of $200 – $220, that’s $100 off the current Pandora asking price. The standard definition TV out may put many of you off, considering we live in a high definition age.

Head over to the forum and take a peek, I’m sure Craig is looking for lots of feedback.
