I’ve searched for a couple hours now and am giving up and asking.
I want an “easy” solution to power the TX2 that operates effectively like a laptop (auto switch to battery when input power is disconnected).
I’ve found Nvidia’s reference specs for developing a custom carrier that does this (along with many folks having challenges with rapid voltage drops causing reboots). But I don’t want to develop my own carrier board. And I don’t see any off-the-shelf carriers that do this.
In the end, I just want to be able to charge and/or exchange batteries without rebooting the system. Is there any kind of turnkey solution for this? I don’t even need the system to be able to track battery level (though obviously this would be nice, I’m sure I can hack together something separate to monitor output voltage). And I can do some degree of hacking/soldering together components (just not involving Eagle and a custom PCB and SMD soldering and the like…I’m still in an early prototype stage). Any kind of battery + charger + switching circuit that outputs a constant 12’ish volts 5’ish amps that mostly retains portability?
