I'll measure it here later, But is pretty frikken big.

@thewise1

A bit of clarification on the voltages:

Yes, its possible to run the gamecube's 12v line off of ~5v, but the GC powerboard will only go as low as 10v. So, unless we come up with a working way the run the gc off of some regulators(TI cards didn't work for me), then we are stuck with the original powerboard.

Very nice! How long have you been working on this? It may be eligible for the contest. :wink:

And could we use a pico PSU for the needed voltages on the gamecube?

No, it doesn't provide the necessary 1.9V.

Doesn't the picoPSU also need 12v? If so, it could only make a GCp more efficient, not run on lower voltage batteries.

When did the contest start? I worked on it for 2 weeks yesterday.

ShockSlayer, you make the fastest portables I have ever seen. This one looks very nice, I can't see any hot glue yet :lol: . Just a question, how can you afford to make all of these portables?
I haven't been here in awhile, and looking back it's one of the worst ideas I ever had. I'm back and I'll be here for awhile, I was quite active 1 year ago and I hope to become that again.

That's what I was thinking, I quess he's been making them for a couple of years now. Which means you know how to make them and you have plenty of parts left over. Am I right?

Dang I wish I could get a job, I've been looking for one since I turned 14, I guess now it's probably time to re-apply since it's been a while.
