re: Can I build my own battery pack

Currently no.
The reason is there is no info on sourcing that "special 10-pin connector".

Hey guys!!!
I tested the battery (6500mah) and it works very fine. It need at least 2 hours to load and I can work up to 22 hours.
My case is very useful. Its not perfect but I can work with it.

Look here: http://alpha.tigler.org/

Best Regards!!!

Hello T1g_i!

I just wonder when you write "I can work up to 22 hours" what kind of payload are we talking about? (OS, applications and any connected devices.)

In any way, looks great! Well done!

Best Regards

Hello nik,
I am still waiting for my Alpha... some custom problems...

When I have my Alpha, I create a suitable layout with the correct positions of the connectors. I will publish that here... when I get permission from LattePanda.
The 3D model in my old post is a normal export function of my PCB layout program "Altium".

Hello!

What displays are the touch sensor and eDP ports compatible with?

Would I be able to connect a display like this
https://www.ebay.com/itm/12-5-2560x1440 ... rk:39:pf:0
and get both the display and touch to work?

Best Regards

Hello!

No, you can't. This display has 30 pin eDP connector (which you can conect to LP) and flexcible cable on top (touch screen). This flexcible cable need some board to transforme "touch signals" to USB or I2C.
I thinking about small display with touch screen but most suitable is display with "40pin eDP touch" connector. On additional 10 contacts may located usb or/and I2C. Don't forget to see in datasheet a pinout for this 10 additional contacts.

Best regards

Does anybody have a suggestion for a plug-n-play battery that is smaller than the Cubi one mentioned in this thread?

I have tried various search terms on AliExpress with no luck (things like "7.4V Li-PO accumulator battery").

The Cubi battery is quite large - 20cm x 20cm; I'd like something closer to the size of the Alpha.
