Raspberry Pi UPS powered by a rechargeable LiPo cell
-keeps your Raspberry Pi running during short power outages
-shuts down the OS if power fails for longer than 10s
-provides a shutdown button to your Raspberry Pi
-restarts the Raspberry if power is back
Designed to cover short periods of brownout/blackout from the power grid, this UPS shield shuts down your Raspberry Pi when the power outage is prolonged (over 10 seconds). The controlled shutdown, prevents SD card file system corruption. Additionally it provides a power-down switch, and a few through holes to fit your own circuit.
When testing new software or hardware on the Raspberry, I did not always shut down the OS correctly, resulting in a corrupted SD card file system. Also I felt the need of shutting down the device without logging in via ssh or GUI by simply pressing a button.
This device gives you tranquility if you live in areas with unreliable power grid, if you need to shut down often or if you deploy your Raspberry in a security solution. There is virtually no power drawn when in operation (less than 1mA), only the recharge of the Lithium cell draws considerable power (300mA) when needed.
For customers in the European Union, an AA size Lipo cell will be provided. Unfortunately this cannot be shipped outside the EU. These cells cost about 2-4$ when ordered from China and I will provide guidance how to obtain one. Provided LiPo cells have around 600 mAh, please ignore the capacity printings on the cells. ** ALL NON EU orders will be without Battery ****
