I’ve updated my Kubernetes cluster so that the Raspberry Pis are now isolated from the rest of my home network and all the components are running off an Anker 10 port USB Charging Hub. This included the following additions:
- D-Link 8-port Un-managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch (Runs on 5V)
- USB to Type N Barrel 5V DC Power Cable – USB A to 5.5mm DC (To power the D-Link switch)
- Mikrotik RB941-2nD-TC hAP Lite (A Router/AP that is powered by USB)
This should make the whole setup somewhat more portable.
The addition of the 10 port USB charging hub allowed me to eliminate nine AC adapters and two power strips.
I’m thinking about purchasing a cheap carrying case with a foam insert so I can cart the whole thing around.
