SimpleRTK2B Base config with Powerbank support stops working after a while?

Q&A forumSimpleRTK2B Base config with Powerbank support stops working after a while?
ihb_ardus_user asked 2 weeks ago

Hello there,
I tested my SimpleRTK2B (base config) with a standard powerbank supply (storage: 10.000 mAh, OUT: 5 V with 2100 mA) and it stopped working after while. Both, the module and the powerbank, stopped blinking (tested it twice). After reconnection and/or port switch everything works fine again, the PB has enough leftover. After reading other questions/ discussions 5 V power input should be fine. Therefore I have no clue what is going on. Can you help me out? Maybe something with the PB or the USB-cable is not right…
Thx and best regards

Could you check if your powerbank has an automatic switch-off feature triggered by time or by low power consumption?

Hi,
I used another Powerbank model (with 2000/ 1000 mA) and a wall charger as well, everything was fine. I think the problem was really caused by an internal PB auto-switch.
Thx for help
