Hi, I was hoping to create a mintyboost-like device for my iPhone and other devices, and the Rider Pro caught my attention. I’ve got a few questions:
Is there any hope of sourcing or developing a case to snugly fit the Rider Pro and 6Ah LiPo pack? I imagine the JST connectors will have to be modded/removed to get everything to really fit like a glove, but this would be very useful to create a self-contained, self-charging power pack.
Related to the above, what’s the vertical dimension of the Rider Pro? I.e. what vertical clearance do I need to clear the PCB and all mounted components?
Can the Rider Pro charge an iPhone 4/4S at the full 1A rate natively, and without mods? Why are there through-hole solder pads near the USB “output” port for resistors? Are these, like the output resistors on the MintyBoost v3, used to pull up the voltage on the USB data pins to allow faster charging rates in some devices?
This one’s a long shot, but any chance of shrinking down the PCB and creating a “mini LiPo Rider Pro” whose dimensions match your 3Ah LiPo pack? Specifically, 50x40mm rather than 70x50mm.
