I’ve been having issues batteries and was wondering if anyone has any good solutions. I am currently using a Raspberry Pi B+ and the 8 AA battery back and a USB Wifi. The issue is that if you increase the motor speed too much (the kids in the class I’m teaching love to do this) then I lose power to the Wifi and then can no longer control the GoPiGo (Note that I have the same issue with the BrickPi). I’m looking into switching from Wifi to Bluetooth as I believe that will need less power, however I haven’t been successful in setting up a PAN on the Raspberry Pi which is needed to use ssh.
It seems like I’m using the GoPiGo in a pretty straight forward configuration. Has anyone else seen this issue?
Any good battery solutions or help getting Bluetooth working on the Raspberry Pi?
