Raspberry Pi users that would find a Raspberry Pi case equipped with an internal battery, real-time clock and UPS a great addition to the range of accessories they own might be interested in the BattPi.
BattPi has been created by Shahid Darbar and specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi model B+ and offers up to 8 hours of use from a single charge.
The pocket sized Raspberry Pi case has been designed to provide extra portability to your mini PC and will be fitted with a 5000 mAh battery providing 3.7v and 18.5Wh. Watch the video below to learn more about this handy Raspberry Pi case:
“Having owned RPi for a while, I realized that it is a portable, powerful and affordable device. But, soon it became evident that the portability becomes limited due to the lack of battery management. So, I looked around and came across few battery management boards that offer such functionality. But the next question was how do you fit that circuit in the currently available cases and how to attach batteries? And the solutions did not appear neat.
BattPi meets your needs – if you are a enthusiast or creator or hobbyist, and you want to keep your projects running all the time; or if you need to take your project outside in open; and you want to protect your Raspberry Pi then you need BattPi.
Whats more?The BattPi Circuit board supports adding external batteries. So you can add any of your Lithium Ion or Lithium Polymer batteries for that 12 or 24 hour run time. Instructions shall be provided along with the product.”
The BattPi project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website, so if you think BattPi is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge from £43 and help BattPi become a reality.
