A Look at Inkplate 5's Battery and Enclosure

by David Z

Dear Backers and Tech Enthusiasts,

Today, we’re focusing on two integral components that enhance the functionality and user experience of our device: the 3D printed enclosure and the battery.

The 3D printed enclosure, designed with precision and user convenience in mind, provides a sturdy and protective case for the Inkplate 5. It ensures the safety of the device while maintaining easy access to all its features. What makes this enclosure even more exciting, thanks to open-source, is its customizability. You can modify the design to suit your specific needs or aesthetic preferences, making your Inkplate 5 truly unique.

The Inkplate 5 is powered by a 1200 mAh battery, a compact yet powerful source that ensures your device runs smoothly for extended periods. The E-Ink display technology of the Inkplate 5 is known for its ultra-low power consumption. When combined with our battery, this means a single charge can last for months, depending on usage. This makes the Inkplate 5 a truly portable device, perfect for a wide range of applications.

It’s important to note that both the enclosure and the battery are optional add-ons. We’ve designed the Inkplate 5 to be as flexible as possible, allowing you to choose the configuration that best suits your project needs. Whether you’re a hobbyist looking for a simple setup or a professional seeking advanced features, the Inkplate 5 can be tailored to meet your requirements.

We’re incredibly excited about these features and we believe they significantly enhance the Inkplate 5’s functionality and user experience. As always, we’re grateful for your support and we look forward to bringing you more updates soon.

Best Regards,

The Inkplate Team
