2023-12-30 (Sa) EWC_Cyberdeck Failed voltage regulator

The wiring was the last thing I wanted to complete to declare this project finished. I ran a power wire from my terminal strip to the fuse, to the regulator, and then added a ground wire. A quick test showed the unit still output 12V. I fastened it to the computer case with a tie-block and zip tie. I secured the battery to the enclosure's bottom with a strip of adhesive Velcro. I powered the computer up, which worked for a few minutes but failed.
3A regulator

I unplugged the regulator and saw it outputting over 13V, readjusted it, and saw it generating less than 10V when connected to the computer. The unit probably needed to be more capable of sustaining three amps. I mounted the keyboard but kept a gap on the right side to remove it without tools.
Assembled but not powered
