Power consumption on the rover

lsusb -v

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
MaxPower 100mA

An Arduino Nano also reports 100mA but according to the datasheet it requires less than 20mA in normal use and 50mA is more likely.

10 Arduino <= 60mA*10 = 600mA = 0.6A @5V
2 Usb Hub <= 100mA *2 = 200mA = 0.2A @ 5V
1 Jetson TK1 <= 2-3A @ 12V

All that has to be powered by a Poweradd Apollo Pro

— Output: 1 x USB 5V 2.1A + 1 x DC12V/16V/19V 3A
— Solar Charger: 15V 150mA (max)
— Size: 224.79 x 124.96 x 21.84 mm
— Weight: 489 g


I will tear apart the powerbank to see what is inside before choosing it.

Some people said it had 18650 cells inside.

The 18 represents the cell’s diameter, in millimeters.
The 65 represents the cell’s length
The 0 represents that the cell is round

its thickness is 21.84 mm so it might be possible.


The rover is supposed to carry a Kinect v1 and this one requires 12W @ 12V/1A
