Final look of all Gateway Traveler and battery power pack 2.0 stuff

I achieved final look for the modules. I realized the sticker set in french and english. Printed in color on a sticker paper and with additional 3D printing for the Gateway Traveler logo.

Gateway Traveler 2.0 Lithium battery pack prototype achieved

The Lithium battery pack module prototype is achieved!

The prototype was adapted with cutting tools and 3D model modified for a future print so that all will fit welll with no need of adaptation. This prototype is a tool to calibrate a finalized model, but works fine. Switch is on the side, so that the casing closes.

It fits a 3DS XL casing with the Gateway traveler and the 3DS XL casing can close with the 3DS XL inside! If you plan to put it in a 3DS classic casing, it will not fit, unless you use only the 3xAAA battery pack, suited either for a 3DS casing or a 3DS XL casing.

(I powered on the  lithium battery module so that we can see that charging voltage is almost 4.2 volts = max charging voltage, but with a secure voltage little drop)

Prototype casing finalized for traveler and in progress for lithium battery circuit

2015/04/21

Plastic casing for Gateway 3Ds traveler 2.0 finalized. Version with 3xAAA batteries operational. Lacks only a little finition for appearance (sticker on the side with labels for LED and button functions). Tested with Gateway software 3.0 and 3.1.1 launcher.dat file and compatible for 3Ds system in the range 4.0 to 9.2. Battery level adapted to the input power pack (normal power detection included). Able to be connected to the 3xAAA battery pack provided or to the Lithium ion rechargable power pack (not provided). Fits well in a 3DS classic casing or 3DS XL casing and the casing are closing each time. The price for the Gateway 3Ds traveler+AAA power pack (batteries not included)+cable for 3DS recharging with the USB output is 24€

Prototype version for the Lithium ion casing is finished. Minor modifications will occur (switch position to the side so that you can close the 3Ds XL casing without switching ON the traveler). Displays the exact voltage of the battery so that you know exactly where you are (decharged: 2.5V – normal charge: 3.7V – maximum charge: 4.2V). Charging module included with underdecharge protection and overconsumption protection. LEDs lights when charging and another one lights when total discharge (and power shutdowns). Price will be 16€ for the buyers of Gateway3Ds traveler (with included micro-USB cable to recharge, and a 2200mAh Lithium ion battery)

3D printer received and ready for first casing printing for traveler

2015/04/12

3D printer has been received as a kit 10 days ago and today it is operational for the first printing. The first test of casing in production is shown in the video here

There will be many settings and adaptations for a finished casing, this is only the first test; but we approach the final times of this project and the release is for soon( maybe two or three weeks).
