    New 7" touchscreen - powering the pi and the screen with portable battery

    kujain

      I am not able to get clear info on the power requirements of the new 7" touchscreen. Since it can be run through usb, I can imagine its not a lot.

      Basically I am trying to find a simple solution to run the pi and the screen using a typical portable battery charger (like the ones used to charge phones and give 1 or 2A output). The pi works fine with this for a couple of hrs (depending on its AH rating). But I don't know what rating and power would be required to run both together?

       

      Please help! Thanks very much!!
