In the past few years, we have become more and more immersed in a digital world. With every new technological advancement, it becomes harder to be disconnected from our devices or internet. But this can sometimes lead to frustration when we’re not able to connect with wifi in public places such as airports, hotels and coffee shops. Creating a Portable Wifi Router is one way that you could avoid these frustrations by providing your own connection wherever you go!
In order for us to make a portable wifi router, there are several factors that need consideration: battery life, size of device and range of signal. The first two will determine how long the device needs to stay charged before it needs charging again- if it lasts too short, then people will become frustrated with their own portable router. The third aspect is more important if we were to make a wireless storage device which contains the same files that are on a USB drive (and charge for this service).
How to make your Portable Wifi Router?
The first thing you would need is a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. There are several ways that you could go about connecting the portable wifi router to WiFi: either with wired ethernet or with an external WiFi dongle, using an internal WiFi dongle, or using the onboard WiFi. Wired ethernet would be easiest, but you may find that there are never any ports available on airport networks for this type of connection! Using an external wifi dongle is your next option and can have an additional advantage if you want to make a wireless storage device that charges people to use it.
There are several ways it is possible to run a portable Wi-Fi router of battery power:
Use a rechargeable battery pack: Use AA batteries as they can be easily found everywhere in the world Use lithium ion (LiPo) batteries this article uses LiPo batteries because they have high discharge rates and can be charged quickly. They also work well for smaller projects like this one because their low mass means that less power is required to move them!
As LiPo batteries carry a greater risk than other types of battery, it is important to understand how to work safely with them. When working with LiPo batteries, you need to follow these rules: – If you have never used LiPo batteries before or are not 100% sure about what you are doing then do not attempt using them – Always charge in an area where there is no flame and take care when charging so that the charger doesn’t get knocked over – Do not leave your charger unattended while it is charging (especially overnight) – Do not discharge below 3.3V as this will cause permanent damage – Do not continue to charge after the cell reaches 4.2V (this is when the charger will stop charging but it is very important that you disconnect the power after this happens as otherwise damage could occur). In order to charge LiPo batteries quickly, only 1C should be applied.
Finally, the capacitors are not required for this project, but they can help to stabilize the power supply and make it less susceptible to spikes, which can otherwise occur when you have your USB devices connected to a lithium battery pack.
