Kernel 2.6?

Re: How do I power this in the car?

I'm *very* paranoid about using one of the cheap USB car chargers as their regulation is very questionable and fried a few cellphone batteries with them. Instead, I ended up building a custom switching power supply that delivers >1Amp. I measured 4.99V unloaded, 4.91V at 1A, and 4.88V at 1.17A. I us...
