Can I battery power an N2+?

Post by Jiehfeng »

I found a 12V 2A 3000mah rechargeable battery, I was wondering if I could use it to power an Odroid N2+? If so, how long could I play say, PSP games on it?

I may be wrong but if it did run at all I don't think you would have enough play time to be worth it.

I think it would run it for about 15 - 20 minutes, emulation is CPU intensive.

But I doubt it will actually put out 2 amps.

Yeah that would last much much longer, I can't say how long though.

Let's assume the N2+ is running full tilt using 2A, that pack would theoretically last over 7 hours.

Time(H) = Capacity(Ah)/Current(A)

I would suspect a bogus rated battery from a discount vendor at that price.

Thanks! It'll be a while till I can afford an N2+ but when I do hopefully it all works out with that battery.
