Hobbywing 5V 3A UBEC Step-Down Converter (Hobbywing power converter)

UBEC's (Universal Battery Eliminator Circuit's) are simply DC to DC step down voltage regulators! This UBEC is perfect for the Raspberry Pi, as it's able to take high voltages (5.5V up to 26V), and outputs a consistent safe voltage of 5V at up to 3A nominal or 5A max! The Hobbywing 5V 3A UBEC is a switch-mode type, which results in it being much more efficient than linear type UBEC's (so your batteries will last longer!)

UBEC's are perfect for applications where you plan to use the Raspberry Pi in a circuit with high voltages such as robots where you'll be driving motors!

Due to the voltage drop caused by the Raspberry Pi, it is recommended to input a minimum of 6.5V to receive a stable 5V output. Anything lower than 6.5V will result in a low voltage warning on the Pi.

Please Note. The Hobbywing UBEC can be set to output either 5V or 6V using an onboard jumper select! Please DOUBLE CHECK your output voltage is correct before connecting your microcontroller or circuit! 

Features

  • Designed with an advanced switch mode DC-DC regulator IC.
  • Battery polarity reversal protection.
  • A metal shield covers almost all the electronic components, and a specially made filter is attached to the output wires to significantly reduce the electromagnetic interference.
  • The working status is shown by an indicator (LED), which lights when the output is in normal range.
  • Output Voltage: [email protected] or [email protected] (Changeable with an output-voltage select jumper)
  • Continuous output current: 3 Amps
  • Maximum output current: 5 Amps
  • Input: 5.5V - 26V (2 - 6 cells lithium battery pack or 5 - 18 cells NiMH /NiCd battery)
  • Size: 43mm*17mm*7mm (L*W*H)
  • Weight: 11g

PiBorg - BattBorg (PiBorg BattBorg)

The BattBorg is a plug and play power converter for your Raspberry Pi which allows you to power the Raspberry Pi off batteries!

It's great for robot projects, or where you need to leave you Pi unmanned for extended periods without a wired power source (outside sensor projects etc.)

It will work with most batteries/battery packs that are between 7-36V so it's great for 12V car batteries, 8xAA battery packs, and so on. We include an 8xAA battery holder in two of the kits as rechargeable AA's are inexpensive, and readily available at most shops,.

The BattBorg uses a highly efficient (~90%) OKI78SR DCDC converter which has a maximum 1.5A output and due to it's efficiency, requires no heatsink.

The BattBorg Features:

  • Fully Assembled Kit - Just add Pi & batteries!
  • 5V 1.5A Max Output
  • ~90% Efficient
  • Compatible with battery packs (or batteries) between 7V - 36V
  • Plugs into GPIO Pins 2, 4 & 6
  • Up to 14 Hours Run-Time @ 15% Load (8 x AA Batteries)
  • Compatible with Model A, B, A+ & B+

UPS PIco **Plus** - Uninterruptible Power Supply & I2C Control HAT (UPS Pico plus)

UPS PIco HV3.0 A Stack 450 Plus is an advanced uninterruptible power supply for the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3, that adds a wealth of innovative power back-up functionality and development features to the innovative microcomputer! The UPS PIco will automatically shut-down your Raspberry Pi if there is a power failure, and can be set to automatically monitor and reboot your Pi once power has been restored!

The UPS PIco HV3.0A Stack Plus features a 5V 3A output, designed for use on the latest Raspberry Pi 3!

In addition to all the features contained in the standard UPS PIco, the UPS PIco HV3.0A Stack Plus features the following:

  • Extended Voltage Input 7 - 28V DC - Protected with Zero Voltage Drop Inverse Polarity Protection, PPTC Over-current, and ESD. Ideal for Cars, Trucks, Buses and any industrial high voltage applications.
  • Dynamic Power Tracking (DPT) - Charges the battery according to available input power from 100 mA - 1200 mA. DPT checks the input current every second, and adjusts the charging current based on this value making it ideal for Solar Panel applications.
  • Bi Stable (Zero Power) Relay - With dual separated independent contacts
  • Optical Isolated Input (Opto-Coupler) – Readable as A/D values

The UPS PIco is equipped with a 450mAh LiPO battery specially designed to enable safe shutdown during a power cut. Additionally, this can be easily upgraded to the extended 4000mAh or 8000mAh versions, which enables prolonged use of a Raspberry Pi for up to 16 hours without a power supply connected!

The UPS PIco features an embedded measurement system that continuously checks the powering voltage of the Raspberry Pi. When the cable power on the Raspberry Pi is absent, insufficient, or the device detects a power failure, the UPS Pico automatically switches to the unit’s battery source. The module then continues to check the voltage on the Pi and switches automatically back to the regular cable supply when power is once again available.

The UPS PIco is powered and the battery pack intelligently charged via the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi, so no additional cabling or power supply is required. Because the UPS Pico requires no external powering and fits within the footprint of the Raspberry Pi, it is compatible with most cases.

The UPS PIco can also be equipped with an optional Infra-Red Receiver which is routed directly to GPIO18 via the PCB for remote IR operations. Additionally the PIco includes an Automatic Temperature Control PWM FAN controller, and can be equipped with a Micro Fan Kit, which enables the use of the Raspberry Pi in extreme conditions including very high temperature environments. The UPS PIco is designed to be 100% compliant with HAT standards for the Raspberry Pi and includes a Gold Plated Reset Pin, with install locations for the Raspberry Pi Zero, B+/2 and 3.

MoPi: Mobile Power for the Raspberry Pi - Stackable (MoPi)

Raspberry Pi not included

MoPi is mobile and 24/7 power for the Pi. On your bike, up a tree, or for your home server: we've got you covered.

Features:

  • multiple inputs — standard batteries, car power sockets, old laptop supplies, solar panels, and more... all attachable via standard screw terminals
  • hot-swap power replacement without stopping work
  • shutdown the Pi cleanly when batteries discharge
  • integrated on/off switch
  • usable as a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) by attaching both batteries and mains
  • on-board LED indicators and on screen linux system notifications
  • configuration of multiple battery chemistries and number of cells from a UI on the Pi
  • full API in Python, plus a shell-friendly command-line interface
  • stackable headers allowing connections of multiple boards at once (e.g. MoPi + XLoBorg, or MoPi + AirPi, or etc.).
  • PCB remoting pads for the power switch
  • self-resetting fuse for over-current protection
  • two-way communication via the I2C bus
  • remote power-off: tell MoPi to power down the Pi when logged-in remotely (after a clean shutdown, of course)
  • timer-based wake-up: tell MoPi what time you want your Pi to wakeup, then power it down and MoPi will boot the Pi as requested
  • 3.3V supply mod: swap three resistors and supply 3.3V, overpowering the Pi's on-board regulator and saving the power that is dissipated there, for weight and battery life critical applications like ballooning
  • wide input voltage range: 6.2V to 20V
  • designed in Sheffield, made in Europe, used all over the world

Choose between stackable and low-profile GPIO headers (if you want to fit your MoPi into tight spaces, you want a low-profile header; if you want to stack MoPi with other Pi add-on boards, then you want a stackable header).

For more details surf on over to http://pi.gate.ac.uk/mopi.

Note: DO NOT plug MoPi onto your Pi while the Pi is powered up!
