USB Battery Pack for Raspberry Pi – 4400mAh – 5V @ 1A – A medium-sized rechargeable battery pack for your Raspberry Pi (or Arduino, or Propeller, or anything else that uses 5V!). This pack is intended for providing a lot of power to an iPhone, cell phone, tablet, etc but we found it does a really good job of powering other miniature computers and micro-controllers. If you want even more power, we have a 10,000mAh power pack with two USB ports that can provide up to 2A! We tested it with an iPhone 5 & 5s so we know it will charge those models. It isn’t good for charging large tablets that need 2A charging current such as the iPad.

Inside is a 4400mAh lithium ion battery, a charging circuit (you charge it via the USB cable attached), and a boost converters that provides 5VDC up to 1 Amp via a USB A port. The 1 Amp output is key for when you want to power the Pi, wifi adapters, maybe even small displays. We hooked it up to a 2.5″ NTSC display (powered from the Pi’s 5V breakout lines), wireless keyboard/mouse and a small WiFi dongle and it hummed along just fine as a mini computing setup!

How long it will last depends a bit on what you have connected. We ran a ‘headless’ pi (no keyboard, mouse, display attached) with a mini WiFi adapter plugged into the USB port and pinged it once a second to keep the network connection from going to sleep and it lasted 7 hours. There is a 4-step LED charge status display and an on/off button.

Comes with the battery pack and a micro-B cable that you can use for charging the pack or powering a device with a micro B port.

In stock and shipping now!

USB Battery Pack for Raspberry Pi – 10000mAh – 2 x 5V @ 2A – A large-sized rechargeable battery pack for your Raspberry Pi (or Arduino, or Propeller, or anything else that uses 5V!). This pack is intended for providing a lot of power to an GPS, cell phone, tablet, etc but we found it does a really good job of powering other miniature computers and micro-controllers. If you want something a little smaller, we have a 4400mAh power pack with one USB port that can provide up to 1A We tested it with an iPad mini, iPad 1 & 3 and iPhone 5 & 5s so we know it will charge those models.

Inside is a massive 10,000mAh lithium ion battery, a charging circuit (you charge it via the USB cable attached), and two boost converters that provide 5VDC, 1A and 2A each via a USB A port. (The markings indicate one is good for 1A and one is good for 2A but we tested it and found that both could provide 2A pretty easily) The 2A output is best for charging tablets or other really power-hungry devices. But either can be used for when you want to power a Beagle Bone or Raspberry Pi, wifi adapters, maybe even small displays. We hooked it up to a 2.5″ NTSC display (powered from the Pi’s 5V breakout lines), wireless keyboard/mouse and a small WiFi dongle and it hummed along just fine as a mini computing setup!

How long it will last depends a bit on what you have connected. We ran a ‘headless’ pi (no keyboard, mouse, display attached) with a mini WiFi adapter plugged into the USB port and pinged it once a second to keep the network connection from going to sleep and it lasted 15 hours. There is a 4-step LED charge status display and an on/off button.

Comes with the battery pack and a micro-B cable that you can use for charging the pack or powering a device with a micro B port.
