Look Ma! No wires or packs!
We’ve seen the LCD mod and how beautiful a thing it is, as well as how much it improves the power consumption of the Nomad.
So with this new-found efficiency and screen quality, what more could you want?
Why, a power source that doesn’t create clutter, that’s what!
Here, we’re going to demonstrate how to install a permanent set of internal batteries and forever eliminate the need for a clunky wall-wart or ugly tumor of a battery pack.
First things first, the items you’ll be needing.
- Everything you had used for the LCD mod, plus a rotary tool of some kind, such as a Dremel.
- x2 Lithium Ion Cells (Link)
-x1 Lithium Protection PCB (Link)
-A charger for the batteries (link)
