This looks like a good way for someone to get hurt by knocking the phone free and having it smash their feet.

A new phone is like $9 on amazon man.

That cdrom is 16 years old and still selling strong at only $55.00




I think they sold a version with a remote control aswell. The AT PSU is alarming though as it you're pretty much got an firebomb there.

Physics doesn't care what you have on hand, 10W+ from USB just isn't going to happen.

These aren't too big and SLA is by far the cheapest route. It would run the Pi and screen for hours on a charge.

Run the Pi on something like this.

I'd wire it to a lighter plug and then have a socket connected to the battery, that way you could just unplug it and plug it into the car.

I would be interested in trying this with something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Dubro-Products-Du-Bro-Standard-Clunk/dp/B0006O4HWC/ref=sr_1_2?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1420668890&sr=1-2&keywords=clunk

It's labeled as nickel plated to prevent corrosion.

(inspiration came from /u/dalgeek's post about R/C planes)

Does your computer have a power passthrough to run a display? Most modern computers don't, but on the off chance it does you could use one of these.

Otherwise, you could try one of these, they're 12VDC, and all you'd have to do is splice the right connector on so it could connect to the P/S output.

You can get larger sealed lead acid batteries, which don't need any maintenance or ventilation.

Something like this, though I don't know what capacity you need: http://www.amazon.com/EnerSys-Genesis-NP18-12BFR-Connector-Retardant/dp/B0002ZR68M

Amazon. Compatible cards are surprisingly plentiful.

I got you! (I don't know if this is it)

Would a fly fishing bobbin work? I tie flys and I bet I could get my small thing of solder through the bobbin and use it to feed into place.

ITT: People who know nothing about ESD. If ESD was an issue they wouldn't sell these.

for desktops, you can use one of these laptop ide to desktop ide to connect ide to msata to a desktop.

Some 1/4" x 1/4" squares of 3m 4010 double sided tape would have helped in that situation.

I'm telling you this right here could give you the time needed to shut your stuff down and if you do it quickly, leave far more than enough to run a router/modem for a while. I know it's hard to justify the cost but suddenly shutting down your PC with the heads of the harddrive not in the resting area can cause more headaches (and be more expensive) then not having this. If it saves your harddrive one time it's more than paid for itself. A harddrive alone will be the cost of this and when you throw in the fact you will lose hours upon hours of trying to get a new harddrive, installing it, installing your OS, replacing everything you lost. You come out ahead.

Also, as a bonus, those pictures of yours that you can't replace because you never made a backup copy, won't be forever gone. Two things that every computer should have and you don't want to skimp on cost with. A battery backup and a power supply. Let a cap bust in your cheap PSU and you're replacing the whole thing. Let a power surge come through when the lights kick back in and you should grab the marshmallows and roast them over the fire and melted plastic that used to be your PC.
