LaptoPi Video

So I made a quick video on a shitty phone last night at the surrey and hants hackspace meeting to show that it does truely work, you can see in the video the screen and keyboard the cables and converters and the pi itself running from the battery on the docking station.

Also I decided to run a battery life test, i quickly chucked together a bit of python to max the cpu out at 100% and then turned the screen on full brightness. The battery lasted way beyond what everyone predicted, infact at 3 and a half hours it still had not even used half the battery life!! that means at least 6-8 hours for a full charge and then its very very unlikely you would run it at full chat on full brightness for 6 hours so probably many many more out of it.

More experiments to come so watch this space!
