PiJuice HAT - A Portable Power Platform For Every Raspberry Pi
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. Compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4.
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 (UPS) that will always keep your Raspberry Pi powered. The PiJuice HAT is a super-easy way to add a battery backup to Raspberry Pi.
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 thre 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.
Keep your Raspberry Pi running with solar, wind and other renewable power.
Ultimate integrated power is one thing but what if we could make the Raspberry Pi renewably powered too? Solar, wind, thermoelectric and other renewable power is free, clean, and green and we're proud to have developed an affordable and efficient renewable power solution for the Raspberry Pi! PiJuice is self-monitoring and, like a space satellite, can become a completely autonomous system. Use the PiJuice as part of an autonomous camera system, weather stations, off-grid desktops, and so many other great outdoor projects. View and buy the PiJuice solar panels separately here.
Onboard 1820 mAh off the shelf Lipo / LiIon battery for ~4 to 6 hours* in constant use! (with support for larger Lipo Battery of 5000 or 10,000 mAH+ to last up to 24 hrs +)
A Full Uninterrupted / Uninterruptible Power Supply Raspberry Pi UPS HAT rechargeable battery solution.
Our PiJuice Raspberry Pi UPS solution works with....
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.
Boxed weight - 96g
Boxed dimensions - 12.2 x 10.8 x 3.5 cm
Unboxed weight - 57g
Unboxed dimensions - 6.5 x 5.6 x 2 cm

With PiJuice we want to provide not only the best portable hardware/software solution, but also a set of inspiring and affordable guided projects for fun and learning in the real world.
I had to wait a while for this to get back in stock. It was worth the wait. This compact hat fits perfectly and extends the gpio pins. I had previously tried a different battery solution and it was nothing but trouble. This one works. One caveat, I had set up an off/on button following code at howchoo.com - I had to undo that before I could communicate with the battery. No problem, as this has a power button it isn't needed anymore. I also purchased the 5000 mah battery from PiSupply and now I have a home-built portable computer that truly works. Run-time is at least several hours (need to do a real test) with the 7" touchscreen and a Samsung SSD drive, much more if I turn down the screen brightness. Get this one, it works!
The shipment arrived quickly, Canada post did not offer tracking.
The hat fit on the raspberry pi 3B+ with no issues.
The software installation was a bit trouble some because of not understanding the order of operations.
But once all was configured it worked well.
The project is still waiting on parts so the final installation has not been done.
