Let's 3D print a case for the PyPortal. Use the PowerBoost 1000C and a lipo battery to make it portable. The case houses all of the electronics and snap fits together. The enclosure features access to the microUSB port, micro SD card slot and the USB recharging port. It uses a mini panel mounted toggle switch to power the device on/off. There's also a 1/4-20 hole for a standard tripod mount so you can mount it however you'd like.
72mm (2.8in) x 99mm (3.9in) x 21mm (0.8in)
With the PowerBoost 1000C, you can use any of the 3.7v lipo batteries from the shop. We suggest one with a minimal capacity of 1200mAh. The PowerBoost 1000C has a battery charging circuit with 1A charging rate. Easily disconnect the PowerBoost from the PyPortal using a 3-pin JST connector.
Our guide on making a portable PyPortal covers the basics and is intended for general reference. This guide documents the assembly of the 3D printed case.
