IMPORTANT NOTE: The LiFePO4wered/Pi3 is superseded by the LiFePO4wered/Pi+, which currently is available through my release campaign on Crowd Supply, and then after the campaign will come to Tindie. Please support my campaign and get your LiFePO4wered/Pi+ before they become generally available!
NOTE: Does not come with a Raspberry Pi, but the battery is included!
The LiFePO4wered/Pi3™ is a high performance battery power system for the Raspberry Pi. It is a supercharged version of the original LiFePO4wered/Pi specifically made to work as a UPS for the Raspberry Pi 3. It can power a Raspberry Pi for 1 to 9 hours from the battery (depending on Raspberry Pi model, attached peripherals and system load) and can be left plugged in continuously. It features:
With the success of the original LiFePO4wered/Pi, many customers wished they could have a similar system that would support UPS functionality for high power boards such as the Raspberry Pi 3. Another often requested feature was to be able to detect the USB input voltage so the system could automatically boot when external power was present and shut down when external power was removed. Both use cases are now possible with the LiFePO4wered/Pi3!
Because there's nothing else like it. There are some LiPo solutions in the market, but those batteries die after a couple hundred cycles. LiPo cells also can't stand UPS duty, being held at full charge seriously affects their life. Other LiPo solutions don't provide clean shutdown capability, so what's the point? There are power managers that provide on/off functionality with shutdown, but you're on your own when it comes to the battery and to make sure the power doesn't die. If your battery dies, you still can get SD card corruption.
The LiFePO4wered/Pi and LiFePO4wered/Pi3 are really the only solution that I'm aware of that is a complete battery / UPS / power manager system!
NOTE: There is a case available on Tindie that fits the Raspberry Pi plus a LiFePO4wered/Pi3:
When purchasing this product you agree to release Silicognition LLC and all its employees from all liability relating to injuries that may occur (during activity, usage, etc.). You also agree to hold Silicognition LLC and its employees entirely free from any liability, including financial responsibility for injuries incurred, regardless of the circumstances. Although one of the safest types of lithium batteries, LiFePO4 have high power density so think about what you are doing and don't do stupid stuff!
