This product is designed to solve the problem of power supply, a persistent challenge for the majority of IoT projects. The uninterruptible HAT will manage sources between batteries and adapters intelligently, ensuring that your device always stays powered without letting your Pi hang up or reset switches seamlessly. RTC featured integrated MCU allows you to schedule and to have full control over the power on/off tasks remotely, timely, and securely. Extensive input range and options – solar included – will provide flexibility to choose the best power options to fit your device needs.
The Raspberry Pi needs to be always powered up on edge which is why the HAT will take care of your device, keeping it powered. You will have full control over its power! The true uninterruptible power supply for Raspberry Pi automatically switches between different power sources without causing a reset or failure on your board. A real-time clock(RTC) featured an onboard ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller lets you schedule power cycles and wake-up or soft shut down Raspberry Pi remotely. At power-sensitive applications, the device can be entered deep sleep modes and save battery. Dynamic power management means will share the load between the main source and the battery while protecting the circuit.

One of the biggest problems of remote projects is keeping the devices all-time-powered on the edge and knowledge of the power status. While stacking the UPS HAT with a battery solves the problem as standalone. The user can manage the UPS HAT via the Sixfab Power Management Platform remotely. The detailed battery and main power source diagnostics are available to ease the maintenance. An ultra-lightweight service agent works on the Raspberry Pi and communicates with the platform if you have an Internet connection via ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Cellular.

As one of the smallest systems around there are so many amazing things you could do with the Raspberry Pi if it was self-powered and portable. Introducing PiJuice! A fully uninterruptible power supply that will always keep your Raspberry Pi powered.
Our revolutionary PiAnywhere technology contained in every PiJuice HAT – is the best way to take your Pi off the grid! The real time clock (RTC) on board will let your Pi know what time it is even with no power input or internet connection. Alongside this is an integrated microcontroller (MCU) chip which will manage soft shut down functionality and a true low power deep sleep state and intelligent startup.
You will be able to always keep track of the charge levels and other info with the two built-in tri-coloured RGB LEDs, trigger events and scripts with the three programmable buttons and since the PiJuice will use up to just five of your GPIO pins (just power and I2C), the rest are free to diversify your project. The stacking header allows you to continue to use your existing HATs and add-ons with PiJuice.

BP7X battery – original battery from Motorola Droid 2 (A955) – 1820mAh battery
Microcontroller is an ST Micro STM32F030CCT6 ARM Cortex-M0, 48MHz, F64KB, R8KB, I2C, SPI, USART, 2.4-3.6V
Charge IC – BQ24160RGET Charger IC Lithium-Ion/Polymer, 2.5A, 4.2-10V
Optional spring pin – Mil-Max 0929-7-15-20-77-14-11-0
Compatible with any 4 pin battery on board that can be used with 00-9155-004-742-006 battery contacts from AVX including the BP7X, BP6X, and any compatible batteries including the 1600mAh and 2300mAh
ones from CameronSino (CS-MOA853SL and CS-MOA855XL)
There is an on board 4 pin screw terminal block for larger off board batteries. Any single cell LiPo / LiIon is compatible. However, you use your own sourced battery at your own risk. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND using
a battery with an internal protection circuit and a NTC (temp sensor)
Optional header for offboard button – connected to same output as SW1
6 pin breakout header – with two GPIO from the ARM Cortex-M0, Vsys, 5v0, 3v3, GND connections
Header for optional off board solar panel / wind turbine etc.
Optional RF Shield attachment – Harwin S02-20150300 (can also double as an inexpensive heatsink)
Input voltage range – 4.2V 10V
Output voltage – 3.3V and 5V
Output amperage – maximum current at 5V gpio is 2.5A and at VSYS output 2.1A, but also this depends heavily on battery capacity. For BP7X have measured around 1.1A at 5V GPIO and around 1.6A at VSYS
output. Obviously, this also depends heavily on the current draw demanded by the Raspberry Pi/device itself. To achieve a maximum of 2.5A it will need battery over 3500mAh.
