I’ve set up a Piaware station and using an exterior home outlet to power my pi. The power supplies I use are 2.1 amp and are great but not very robust for outside use. I’ve burned through 2 already. Can anyone recommend one that can handle some exterior use?
I’ve set my Pi up in a PVC box purchased from Home Depot and I’m awaiting 2 stuffing tubes for watertight sealing. I still need to glue in some stand offs for the Pi but have a nice mount for the filter. Once I get it mounted I’ll mount the box to the wall or fence or something.
To be fair, I’ve only used it indoors (and it’s only rated for indoor use) but it runs cool and stable when powering a Pi2 and NooElec radio receiver. It might work well outside if it’s kept in the waterproof box and you use an extension cord to connect to the power outlet.
I will second this runs a Raspberry Pi 2 overclocked to the RP2 setting with a USB keyboard, mouse, wireless network adapter, and NooElec RTL-SDR receiver with no other external power needed. I Had it outside for a couple weeks on a test set up ran good. However I would defiantly keep it dry to be safe just like any electrical device.
