Re: 12V Power for the Pi (was Re: [RaspberryPi-4-HamRadio] Getting back to the RPi)

Eh, considering all that it does and the convenience factor I don’t think $150 is all that outrageous. I already have a Pi-TNC, Signalink, GPS puck, and the Mo-Pi, so it’s superfluous for me. The Mo-Pi handled my power requirements (namely multiple inputs and charging circuitry) better than the DRAWS HAT. Although it would be very convenient to have everything in one package.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not going to spend another $150+ for more hardware that is less capable than what I already have to do the work of a $7 buck-boost module.

For Amateur Radio use, be sure to look at the DRAWS™ <> board: 9-15 VDC input supply, sound card, dual radio interfaces, GPIO pin extensions, GPS (w/battery backed clock) -- all integrated into a Raspberry Pi HAT.
