What power sources can we use to power up Crux?
Crux can be powered up using mobile phone chargers, or any adaptor or powerbank with microUSB type B port that meets the requisite power specifications.
Most android mobile phone chargers may not suffice as the maximum they support are typically 1A. Similarly with battery banks. However, some battery banks do provide a 2A / 2.5A port for fast charging and those can power up Crux unit too.
In our lab tests, a 5,000 mAh battery bank keeps Crux unit powered up for 6-8 hours, depending upon number of devices (GSM dongles, USB drives, etc) connected to it. At Crux Labs, we use it almost always during onsite demos.
