The Anthrolume 4.0 trenchcoat fabrication is very close to complete. Here I detail the new power belt I’ll be wearing under the trench.
Some fun facts:
- Each of the 1,000 LEDs can draw 58mA at full brightness white
- Given that, the entire trench could draw 58A at 5V, or 290W
- The lithium-ion battery packs, running in parallel, can put out as much as 27A at 5V
So as you can see, I can’t run the suit at full brightness, but even at quarter brightness it is plenty bright. I should be visible from at least a mile away.
