PiJuice HAT - A Portable Power Platform For Every Raspberry Pi (C5 PiJuice)

As one of the smallest systems around there are so many amazing things you could do with the Raspberry Pi if it was self-powered and portable. Introducing PiJuice! A fully uninterruptible power supply that will always keep your Raspberry Pi powered.

Our revolutionary PiAnywhere technology contained in every PiJuice HAT - is the best way to take your Pi off the grid! The real time clock (RTC) on board will let your Pi know what time it is even with no power input or internet connection. Alongside this is an integrated microcontroller (MCU) chip which will manage soft shut down functionality and a true low power deep sleep state and intelligent startup.

You will be able to always keep track of the charge levels and other info with the two built-in tri-coloured RGB LEDs, trigger events and scripts with the three programmable buttons and since the PiJuice will use up to just five of your GPIO pins (just power and I2C), the rest are free to diversify your project. The stacking header allows you to continue to use your existing HATs and add-ons with PiJuice.

Keep your Raspberry Pi running with solar, wind and other renewable power.

Ultimate integrated power is one thing but what if we could make the Raspberry Pi renewably powered too? Solar, wind, thermoelectric and other renewable power is free, clean, and green and we're proud to have developed an affordable and efficient renewable power solution for the Raspberry Pi! PiJuice is self-monitoring and, like a space satellite, can become a completely autonomous system. Use the PiJuice as part of an autonomous camera system, weather stations, off-grid desktops, and so many other great outdoor projects. View and buy the solar panels separately.

Solar Power Starter Kit (1A4 KT solar starter kit)
Product Description

Learn how to harness the energy of the sun in your Electronics and Design and Technology projects with our new Solar Power Starter Kit. With this kit it is possible to build a simple solar charging and power supply system for a variety of useful low power devices.

As of 2017, renewable energy accounted for more than 25% of energy produced in the UK for the year. Environmental targets are such that this is set to increase year on year. Solar power is already a key player in the renewable energy market and there is the potential for it to grow much larger still. It has been estimated that covering just a fraction of the Sahara Desert in solar panels would provide enough electricity to power the energy needs of the whole world!

The Solar Power Starter kit itself is a simple kit to build and understand. Once the kit has been set up and placed in direct sunlight the batteries will begin to charge. If the light level is insufficient to facilitate charging, the diode prevents any of the charge held in the batteries from discharging back through the solar cell. The supplied switch enables you cut power to the kit that you are powering for greater recharging efficiency.

If used with the included Kitronik LED Desk Lamp Kit, for example, fully charged batteries will provide light for up to 17 hours, more than enough for a little light reading.

Note:

  • This kit requires assembly and some soldering.
  • The kit does not contain any connecting wire, you will need to use wire like Multi-stranded Wire.

Features:

  • Harness the energy of the sun and add simple solar charging and power supply to your low power devices.
  • Learn about renewable energy and how simple it can be incorporate into your designs.
  • A Small Signal Schottky Diode is supplied to protect against accidental discharging of the batteries through the solar cell.
  • Examples of Kitronik kits that can be used in conjunction with the Solar Power kit are;
    • 2155 5V LED Desk Lamp Kit-Included with the Solar Power Starter Kit.
    • 2157 FM Radio Kit V2.0.
