Cross posting from cgminthecloud: FWIW I have a ping and remote that we no longer use. Screen is dead, but otherwise works fine. If someone wants to pull it apart, I'll gladly ship.

seems like it can't do temps and does small boluses instead

You have to set the serial on the command line or in the SERIAL env variable though.

Hey all. I've been catching up with messages from the last little while - I see lots of stuff about power issues on the Pi.
I found lots of issues when trying to run a pi 2 + wifi + carelink off a battery pack
I'd lose wifi connection, things were flaky, lots of issues reading from the carelink and the like
no useful errors

That's what I am concerned about overall. Did you disable power management for the WiFi adapter?
Oskar Pearson
@oskarpearson
Sep 29 2015 22:14 UTC
I did
I changed to a different battery pack, and all the problems went away

Here's how to disable power management with the Edimax adapters... http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/27288/edimax-ew-7811un-frequently-drops-ssh-connection
Were you using a 2.1 amp adapter?
Oskar Pearson
@oskarpearson

It was rated at 2 amps. I thought that'd be enough, given the pi 1's power requirements.. but apparently the pi2 requires more.

This has worked well for us so far, even though it's rated the same amperage: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00P8T2C9K?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage
On a related note, the Edison is much better on the battery front
I ran an Edison with wifi and bluetooth enabled and a srf-stick off the same battery pack that I'd had problems with successfully
Further - the pi had managed to run for 6.5 hours on that faulty battery pack..
the Edison ran for 30
(let me rephrase... it had run 6.5 hours on the battery pack, with lots of flakiness.. it's not so much that the battery pack is faulty - just that it can't supply enough for the pi2)
So
I'm still focussing on the Edison for now
And trying to get it to work with all it's problems with the Carelink USB
But I think it's going to be a real contender. Much smaller than the pi, and battery life is great.
Assuming we don't give up and run everything with Rileylink on a phone
(Given the work that seems to be going on, it's a real possibility!)

I got http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00P8SY7HQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 on sunday, I got about 9 hours from it today, no problems with carelink or wifi

I don't have the person's name handy, and she's asleep right now. I can find out and let you know if you want

male or female?
Oskar Pearson
@oskarpearson
Sep 29 2015 23:04 UTC
We've been trialling closed loop (I'm taking it slowly, but we've let it run unassisted overnight).
I think female. Haven't met them.

Anna Brackenridge I think?
That's the only female consultant I know there :P
Oskar Pearson

Might be it - but I've only heard the name once in passing.
I'll find out and let you know

I was there on Monday
only takes an hour to get there, then get blood taken, then sit for an hour waiting for the consultant, then an hour home :P
