I am planning on running the Jetson AGX Xavier developer kit (in nvp model 0) from a lithium ion battery through the barrel connector. Depending on how charged the battery is, the voltage varies between ~16V and ~12.8V. Which is within the specified range that I can find in the documentation. There are a bunch of low power usb devices connected. There is nothing else connected to the battery.
I have a few questions. Should I put a regulator in between the battery and Jetson? Should I put a fuse between the battery/regulator and Jetson? (if so what amp rating?) Is there a better more secure way to provide power than the barrel connector?
Sorry, I am a bit new to a lot of the electrical side of things and I am finding it challenging finding and reading some of the documentation.
