I have a
LiPo battery connected to a DC > AC inverter and these two adapters (images below) are plugged into the inverter.
Everything runs fine currently but I know I'm losing juice in the conversion back and forth. Cutting out the DC > AC inverter, AC > DC adapters, and running power straight from the
~12v battery to the
12v devices should work.
The LiPo fluctuates from
12.6v (full charge) to
9v but my shut-off alarm is set to
9.9v. Are there any caveats here? The first adapter from "FSP Group Inc." is for an "Nvidia Jetson TK1" computer so I'd hate to fry that.
What is the name of the plug on the "FSP Group Inc adapter"? I'd like to buy a separate one instead of cutting that one off the adapter.
- 6500 mAh
Edit - Power Consumption
Jetson TK1 Power Consumption link
- Booting up: ~3.6W (for ~2 minutes booting)
- CLI via SSH: ~1.6W
Heavy Disk Usage: 1.6W - 4.7W
Input Range: 9.5v - 13.5v
Microsoft Kinect Power Consumption link
Input Range: 8.5v (~0.42A) - 12v (~0.35A) link
I'm surprised to see that the kinect requires so much more than the computer.
