In a past I planned an arduino project, on the microcontroller side. With the possibility to go idle and save batteries. But arduino is not a computer.
The reduced size of things like raspberry pi zero (w), are appealing.
But, is it correct that we cannot really power them with batteries for any real application?
I agree that "real application" is a kind of blur. But having a raspberry pi zero attached to a 3 times the size transformer is not really funny either.
Can you point me to a "battery" based examples applications for the zero (w)?
And negate my question ;)
My original project was a camera/picture based application. It works on arduino with the exception of defining nicely (with enough security) a network connection.
