Hi everyone

I am wanting to power a RB 751 off a battery, so that I have a RB connecting to the internet via 3g and providing wifi. Anyone have a suggestion on how to do this?

Thanks in advance

Get a battery pack that has the same rating as the power adapter of mikrotik. Then either buy a cable or solder you own so that the power cable is the same that can be plug on the mikrotik.

Are you inserting into a PoE injector? or locally plug jacking it?

One thing we found was if we had two batteries in Paralle to give 12V the drain of the battery brought the voltage down too quickly and the devices dropped. When we had them in series to double the voltage to 24V then we had a bigger voltage range before it dropped. We were mounting on a pole with a Solar panel and we were PoE injecting the power.
