The aarch64 build of VS Code is available in Raspberry Pi OS repositories to bi installed directly with "apt install code", but the Ubuntu repos only have x86 and x86_64 versions of code. So we need to manually install code - once we install the .deb package, it adds the Microsoft repo for us to keep it up to date:

I've use the Amp Ripper 3000, from kickstart-design, in previous projects - it is one of the highest quality, most simple to use charger/boost converters available for powering Raspberry Pi and other 5v projects. It's plug-and-play from charger to battery to Raspberry Pi with enough power to run the Pi 4 and has a low-voltage pin to signal when the battery gets low. And its one of the few solutions supporting pass-through-charging so it's suitable for a UPS.
- Increased 4 amp maximum current supply for more demanding setups.
- I2C reporting of charging/battery voltage, battery percentage, charge/discharge rates via a MAX17084 chip.
- Several large VOUT solder connections.
- Support for a wide range of charging voltages: 5-14v! Charge from 12v automotive systems, solar, etc.
- Battery temperature thermistor support.
- Configurable charging current if you'r adventurous enough to replace a surface mount resistor.
- Power performance - Does it run an Intel Compute Stick m3? (YES!)
- Reading battery charge stats via i2c using a pi 4 and python.
- Reading battery charge stats via i2c using a pi pico and micropython.
- Verifying battery percentage estimates and high/low cutoff voltages.
