How long can the PowerPack Ambi power the Google Wifi mesh Wi-Fi router?
The primary Wifi point draws about 3.5W on average; so, 37 × 0.85 / 3.5 = 9.0 hrs approx., where 0.85 is conversion efficiency. Each (non-primary) mesh Wifi point draws about 2.5W on average; so, 37 × 0.85 / 2.5 = 12.6 hrs. You'll need an Ambi for each Google Wifi point.
Can the Ambi be used as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for the Raspberry Pi 4B?
Yes. (Glad we can help make the Pi mobile!) Use it for interconnection between the Pi and a USB-C or USB-A power adapter. No power blips will result when power input to the Ambi is removed and later added back. The power consumption of the Pi can vary quite a bit by model and by the task being run on it. 1.5W to 3W seems typical, although it can go much higher during short spurts.
My use case requires more wattage than 18W. What can I use?
We offer a couple of upgraded products with UPS functionality. Please check them out here.
