So ill need to get a cable that says somewhere its OTG ? Not just a cable that is micro usb on one end and

usb (female) on the other end ? Cuz i see lots of the latter for sale

 

Thanks

I tried again inserting a flash drive into my OTG cable and searched around using the ES File Explorer app. I found the drive inside the "udisk" folder where I can see all the files on the drive. I haven't yet tried to play music from that or move files to the sd card. At least I can confirm that an external USB drive does show using the OTG cable. As I can get about all the music I want on the player and sd card, I don't have much incentive to use the cable and external USB drive for additional storage.

The OTG cables are very inexpensive, less than $10, IIRC.

As for the Hub, it would have to be externally powered as you really don't want the DX100 powering the hub but unfortunatly that defeats the purpose.

 

The HDD is no different than flash as it is presented in the same context from a hardware perspective.

 

ie meaning if you have a 3tb drive... it should work. Issue will be power. Flash can run off usb power with no issue. Magnetic drives..not so much

Owch never thought of that. Man the battery in this thing is weak enough w/out powering

an external device LOL i wonder if such a battery is/will ever be upgradable ?

post #7894 of 12738

we can prolly upgrade it but you need to remove the back plate because the battery might not fit haha

post #7895 of 12738

Just get an extra large back plate and turn it into a bomb ;).

Has ne one tried to upgrade the battery yet ? im dumb as a stump at this stuff , but i can wait till someone brighter

does it and then i can read a how to do pretty good lol

 

Seems here in my area all i can find to use micro usb is a 2 ended female usb adapter . If i ran micro usb into

dx100 and male end to one end of adaptet then plugged a flash drive into other end would i have a working

solution to not being able to find a true micro usb OTG in my area ?

 

im still not understanding what the difference may be if any

 

Cheers

I see nothing, I know nothing. . . 

 

edit: I realize that may be a foregone conclusion.

The battery, I believe, is made for the DX100. As they get nano tubes able to be used in batteries, the current reserve should be at least 10 fold over current batteries. But maybe by the time they get nan tubes to that point, something else will come along.

Anyone has a measurement of the battery thickness?

 

being Lipo, finding a suitable fit should be easy.

 

Perhaps a phone battery of say like a samsung S3? (depending on voltage of course).

Don't have thickness. Have voltage though. Also despite being a 2x4.2V cell, there's no harness cable for balanced charging blink.gif.

8.4V

 

MaH is known?

 

The good news is that 8.4v is standard in the RC world. The issue will be the MaH needed and correct dimensions. As you mentioned in your threads.. most l-po go by the 3.7v.

 

something like this (too thick of course but).

 

http://www.amazon.com/Racers-Edge-5200mAh-Saddle-Battery/dp/B005OKY1NS/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1348080962&sr=8-5&keywords=Traxxas+Lipo+Battery+8.4v

 

or

 

http://www.bbmbattery.com/214-conventional-li-polymer-cell

 

that config though is only gfood for 7.4v.. 1V short of ther 8.4

 

airsoft also uses LiPo now also

mAh was given by iBasso to me on e-mail - 2400mAh. Note though 8.4V at least to my knowledge, is quite non-standard for the Lipo world. Consumer Lipo cells are in multiples of 3.7V. Having said that, none of my Lipo cells were every accurately in 3.7V multiples. At least in Tokyo most of the RC stuff are Lipos or LifePO4 which puts them into the 3.7V and 3.3V respectively although older NiMH/NiCad 1.2V cell multiples do still exist.

edit:  iBasso site puts it at 2000 mAh

 

3.7v/2000 mAh x 2 (series).

 

the bbmbattery has each at

 

4.8mm thickness assuming the right thickness. 60mm W x 65mm L

 

there is a 3800mAh battery that is 4.9mm thick.. the other dimensions are 66mm W x 100mm H.

 

under high temp apps

 

there is a 5000 mAh 3.7

 

8.9mm thick, 64mm W x 73.4mm L

 

looking at all the lipo.. apparently with the blaancer in place, they can be charged to 4.2v without an issue.
