Im trying to learn robotics with raspberrypi but im having a problem. I have 6 AA batteries in a batteryholder that are connected to a breadboard and with M-M jumping wires its connected to a LM2596S adjustable voltage regulator module, Which then is connected to the raspberryPi with M-F jumping wires.
I turned down the V provided to about 5V which is recommended, but as fast as I plug it in to the Pi it drops down to about 4V which is not enough power for the pi to run and makes it shut down. I have tried adjusting the power (out) to 6V and 7V but the same thing keeps happening when I connect it to the Pi, the V (out) drops down to 4V. The V (IN to the module) shows about 8.2V when not connected to the pi, but drops down aswell as soon as I connect it.
