You can always use a USB power pack. It'll run the openSPOT2 for days and days.

All modules are attached with velcro to each other.

The system runs almost endless. After 1 week of operation I gave up to carry on the test. It seems that 10 days (24h) operations is realistic.

This is finally my ultimate hotspot :D

Just an FYI. I tried a mycharge I had laying around and it turns itself off after a period of time. It is fully charged, all bars lit. I plan to get one of the chargers listed here.
