Cheesy

I used my own flash drive for now, I'll ship it off to you when I get your drive!

And here it is! http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9542654/btc/IMG_0210.JPG
I love it, I'm definitely going to build myself one!

Thanks,
Garrett

I just got your flash drive in the mail today, and I also made a AA power supply for the box.

If you want the custom power supply, all I ask is the cost of parts + 1 coin. It includes a diode so you can still power it traditionally over USB without a problem.

The first order is ready to ship out. I'm offering completed PirateBoxes now too. I have one for rjk and one other coming in soon that will be available for purchase, along with a few more from bitdragon further in the future.

Rjk's box is done and now I'm waiting for flash drives.
I'll have one extra for sale soon. Cost of parts + 4btc!

How long does it run on batteries? Shouldn't you have 4 Aa for higher voltage? Does the usb cable charge the battery pack?

What is the total cost of parts?

Don't get caught up in the game and have a nice day!

That picture might be a little hard to see, but there are six AAs for a total of 9v, and a 5v regulator. So they should last quite a while, but I'll do some testing next week. I'll also test an 8AA pack.

The usb cable does not charge the pack, it is only for powering the router with the included wall plug.

Router - $40

Battery pack - $8
Voltage regulator $4
Battery clip - $4

Shipping - ~$8

Total parts: $64 or ~13btc

Edit: I left out the flash drive. That's $15 for a compact 16gb.

Got my PirateBox today, thanks Garrett!



The tab on the regulator gets a bit warm, so I might add my own heatsink to it.

Update, these Tp-link boxes are glued together so they are hard to get apart.  Angry
However, I attached a heatsink to the regulator and shoved it inside of the box. Grin
Too bad the mini-USB can't be easily moved inside the box, if it was a regular connector I would be able to solder directly to the pins inside, but it is an SMT USB connector which is a pain. This forces me to have a pigtail running outside the box around the edge to the mini-USB port:



Anyways, better than nothing. Cheesy

Thanks for the review, rjk.

It is a bummer that it can't be completely self contained aside from the battery. You could use an elbow and some smaller wire to clean it up a bit, though.

I miss the lunch box style, but meh...

Perchance can you screen shot the startpage for the piratebox?

I have one on hand and ready to ship minus the battery pack!

I just bought one of these from Garr255. I cant wait to see what I can do with it in a rescue environment.  It might also be a good way to quickly set up a file sharing link for the many wifi devices at our surge tent.

Thanks for the purchase, it will ship on Tuesday.

I am going to always try to keep one in stock for those who want to buy. I'm going to order parts for this one this week.

Thanks all!

Ive been looking for something like this as I sometimes go to Melbourne and sit at the city square with a solar powered generator and let people charge their mobiles and laptops. Running a piratebox from solar would be a nice extra Smiley

Haha that's really cool.

Teflone just sent me a PM ordering one and mentioned he's going to try to hook it up to some solar panels, which will be sweet.

So does that mean I should order another? Tongue

After testing I am going to mod the interface to make my rescue version. How is this for a logo?

Haha, sweet Cheesy

I just uploaded that to your box, but I didn't apply it to the web page.

I ordered one yesterday and will be buying another tomorrow. Does anybody else want one?
