Why Do You Need UPS for Raspberry Pi?
Last few days I’ve posted articles related to Raspberry such as the Kano DIY kit raspberry-powered computer and the Photon Elephant 3D printer OS. Today we got a new technology for your Raspberry pi project and I’m very sure you will like this uninterruptible power supply (UPS) pico specifically designed for raspberry pi board. If this is your first time to read about this mini pc, then you might want to check my initial post about Raspberry Pi Model B Starter Kit.
The Raspberry Pi UPS Pico is available in different versions such as a 300mAh LiPO battery that is enough for you to shut down your Raspberry Pi safely during a power outage. There is also a 3000mAh version of the raspberry UPS which is designed to lasts for extended hours up to 8 hours of continuous usage.
UPS Pico will automatically switches to battery mode when it detects a power failure or when there is an insufficient power going through your board as it monitors the voltage continuously. Once the power has resumed it will automatically get its power source from the cable itself.

In addition, the UPS pico can be charge via the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins and you don’t need extra cable or power supply. It is also 100% compliant with HAT standards for the Raspberry Pi B+ and A+.
Finally, the UPS Pico also features an implemented Automatic Temperature Control PWM FAN controller so that you can also use add-ons such as fan kits to use the Raspberry Pi even in extreme conditions such as high temperature environments.
The Raspberry Pi UPS Pico is available for purchase from €23.99 with the 300mAh battery or you can add €18 for the 3000mAh battery via this link.
