LiFePO4wered/Pi+ – Next Gen LiFePO4 battery / UPS / power manager for Raspberry Pi, ideal for headless and IoT use #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Patrick Van Oosterwijck posted a (sort of) follow up project to his popular LiFePO4wered/Pi project that we covered last year. Check out the full write up on hackaday.io

Many IoT and other projects are based on the Raspberry Pi, but usually little thought is given to the power supply. Most project use generic cell phone adapters or USB power banks, which is fine for one-off projects where the duct taped parts and cabling don’t matter and it’s expected that SD cards will die because power was removed with the Pi running.

But when you need reliable non-stop operation for your prototypes, or you’re ready to turn your project into a good looking product, or you want to use different power sources such as solar, it’s time to look for a serious power manager for your Pi.

Built on the solid foundation of the #LiFePO4wered/Pi, this project provides Pi bootup and shutdown management based on button or touch, input voltage, battery voltage and time, all while making sure the Pi always performs a clean shutdown before power is removed.

In addition it provides significantly higher power, RTC functionality and Pi current measurement.
