Hello everyone! I've got a RaspTank product and assembled it, but I have had a powering issue. When I've connected the Motor HAT, it lacks sufficient power, even with a QC3 port @ 5V and 3A. It complains about being undervoltage. It somehow pulls through the boot sequence, but when I try to move the wheel from the WebServer, the power falls below the critical level and the Raspberry Pi reboots. I don't at the moment have the option of a more powerful microUSB power supply. I know the big blue 18650 batteries supplied by Adeept will suffice, but I lack a charger for them. Can anyone tell me what is the problem and what should be done?

Specifications:
  • Raspberry Pi 3B+
  • 2 x 18650 batteries uncharged
  • 5V 3A power supply
