Hi there. I’be been playing around with the bugs lately, and have been trying to figure out some ways to increase their battery life. I have seen mention of battery modules for the bug, but I don’t see these in the store or anywhere else than in a few forum posts.  so, I’ve been thinking of other ways to get extra power, like hooking up external battery backs via the power jack.

I have an external Li-Ion battery back that is generally designed to power usb-compatible devices (i.e. 5v draw). Has a capacity of 3400mAH, and output of 5.5v volts. From my understanding of the specs, this should be sufficient to supply power to the bugs and would work identically to having them plugged into a wall-based power supply. I haven’t tested this
