OK, the screen is still the same and I guess I will take McWill's offer to ship it to him to have a look....
In the mean time, I saw a cheap Lynx I on offer on Marktplaats and offered an even lower price since it was a "restoration project". Obviously the screen glass was missing and the battery cover was gone too. This didn't matter for me since I wanted the shell only....and of course I'd keep the PCB for spare parts (f.i., the pot I needed )
So for 15 euro's I picked it up today. The case is in very very nice condition, even the stickers on the backside.
The reason I needed is because a long time ago......I put the long screws in on the wrong side....and if you screw far/hard enough.......you get two of those nice "bumps" on the left side of the Lynx......which I really do not like
Also....I'm currently running some tests to see what the Lipo battery really is.
I am charging the Lynx with a power bank. The capacity of this powerbank is about 2500mAh I guess, so I knew it would take several times to charge the Lynx fully.
I'm measuring the total mAh with one of those little USB devices....might not be 100% accurate, but I just want to have a rough idea.
The good thing is that it never resets the total time and mAh until you press a button, so you can run multiple charge runs after one another.
So I fully charged the power bank, then charged the Lynx with it until the Powerbank was empty, then charged the powerbank again and so on and so on....
The picture shows the results after the SECOND run so the lipo is not complete full yet !
The charging is running with about 0,60 A. I guess the Raspberry Pi power supply could provide some more amps, but not sure if the Powerboost allows for more charging current.
Oh and of course I'm doing all this with the Lynx constantly powered off.
Now at the third (and I guess last) run....
Anyway, this will give an idea of the real capacity of the Lipo.
