My Pioneer edition FreedomBox running on in-built battery backup during a minor power outage today.
I have minor power outages of a few minutes a day at my place during the rainy season. When I was running FreedomBox on a bare Raspberry Pi 2 earlier, I had to replace the microSD card once a year due to damage. The Pioneer edition has solved this problem for me.
If I understand correctly, this is still microsd based, so why is it more robust than a rasperry?
He says that the Pioneer Edition FreedomBox is more robust than a "bare" Raspberry Pi 2.
The point is that the Pioneer Edition FreedomBox has a backup battery which provides 5-hours of power, while a bare Raspberry Pi does not. The battery is what makes the Pioneer device more reliable in cases of power outage.
There are other early adopters running FreedomBox on the same microSD card since 2015 but they had stable power supply or backup power.
