Can I run TINI off of a battery?

Tim Rohaly

Power consumption is a maximum of 250ma @ 5V for the SIMM itself, and some additional amount for the socket board if you're using one. This implies that you can run the TINI board off of 6 standard 'AA' cells for about 10 hours with Alkaline batteries; significantly less time if you use rechargables.

Note that if you intend to run the TINI off of batteries you will need at least a voltage regulator to condition the power - this is conveniently provided on the regulated socket board.
