Raspberry Pi developers looking for a convenient and portable power supply or uninterruptible power supply to provide juice to their projects, might be interested in the new PiUPS Raspberry Pi power supply which can also be used for Arduino projects as well.
The PiUPS Raspberry Pi power supply runs on 3 x AA rechargeable NiMH batteries and has been designed to provide uninterrupted power to your projects as well as mobility if required. While connected to the mains power, the system keeps the battery pack charged and when the mains power disconnects, the PiUPS switches on without any interruption.
Standard 2000 mAh batteries it will run for about 2 hours and allows you to make your Raspberry Pi or Arduino project mobile. The integrated battery monitoring system within the PiUPS system will also determine battery health and stabilises the power supplied to your Raspberry Pi.
“PiUPS can send events and data to your Pi, such as battery low, battery voltages/current levels, button clicked/double-clicked, etc. And you can configure your Pi to act on those events. You can start your own program when a button is clicked (or a different one when Double Clicked or Triple Clicked). For data exchange, it connects to your Pi using a I2C Access Point board on GPIO pins (this board is included with PiUPS).”
The PiUPS Raspberry Pi uninterruptible power supply project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think PiUPS is something you could use, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the PiUPS uninterruptible power supply become a reality. Read out essential guide if you are interested in Raspberry Pi displays and HATS.
