ANAVI Fume Extractor on Batteries

Recently our crowdfunding campaign for ANAVI Fume Extractor ended successfully. Right now we are manufacturing the units. In the mean time we are often asked: is it possible to run ANAVI Fume Extractor on batteries?

Yes, absolutely! Just use a USB power bank and connect it with an appropriate USB cable to the microUSB connector on the ANAVI Fume Extractor.

Measuring the power consumption of ANAVI Fume Extractor

The power consumption of the ANAVI Fume Extractor developer kit with the fan and all peripherals turned on is about 0.5A. The board operates at 5V. The 80mm fan consumes 0.25A. You can adjust the hardware jumper to turn off the WiFi and slightly reduce the overall power consumption.

Earlier this week the crowdfunding campaign for ANAVI Fume Extractor at Crowd Supply ended successfully! 83 backers from 16 countries all around the world ordered kits. With their generous help ANAVI Fume Extractor will go from prototype to mass-manufactured do-it-yourself kit for makers.

The printed circuit board of ANAVI Fume Extractor

We have already sourced most of the mechanical parts for the kits, so we proceed with manufacturing of the printed circuit boards in a small local factory in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This is a long and time-consuming process. . The PCBs are expected by the end of July. After that the local factory has a scheduled summer vacation in weeks 32 and 33 so the assembly is planned for the end of August, and it will be done on several batches.

ANAVI Fume Extractor developer kit

Each ANAVI Fume Extractor kit will be flashed with the default open source firmware, packaged carefully and provided to the Crowd Supply team. They will ship the kits to their owners. The estimated shipping date remains Oct 29, 2020.

The whole world is gong through difficult times right now. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the local factory is working with reduced capacity, so we will keep backers updated with the progress. So far everything is OK. Fingers crossed we will be able to carry on at the same pace.

To avoid any risks for backers, we have an agreement with Crowd Supply that they will keep all funds until ANAVI Technology Ltd provides them the kits. This way in the unexpected case of a complete inability to deliver, Crowd Supply will offer backers full refunds.

If you missed to place an order during the crowdfunding campaign you still have a chance do pre-order at Crowd Supply and to be among the first owners!
