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.

PiJuice Features:

  • BP7X battery - original battery from Motorola Droid 2 (A955) - 1820mAh battery
  • Microcontroller is an ST Micro STM32F030CCT6 ARM Cortex-M0, 48MHz, F64KB, R8KB, I2C, SPI, USART, 2.4-3.6V
  • Charge IC - BQ24160RGET Charger IC Lithium-Ion/Polymer, 2.5A, 4.2-10V
  • Fuel gauge IC - LC709203FQH-01TWG Battery Fuel Gauge, 1-Cell Li-ion, 2.8%
  • EEPROM - CAT24C32WI-GT3 EEPROM, I2C, 32KBIT, 400KHZ, 1V7-5V5

  • Input voltage range - 4.2V 10V
  • Output voltage - 3.3V and 5V
  • Output amperage - maximum current at 5V gpio is 2.5A and at VSYS output 2.1A, but also this depends heavily on battery capacity. For BP7X have measured around 1.1A at 5V GPIO and around 1.6A at VSYS output. Obviously, this also depends heavily on the current draw demanded by the Raspberry Pi/device itself. To achieve a maximum of 2.5A it will need battery over 3500mAh.

How Much Power Does my Fridge Use - with the Battery connected to the SOURCE side and Car Fridge (or other accessory) connected to the LOAD side. The Watt Meter shows the current into the Fridge, voltage and power at the battery and accumulates the Ah and Wh while the fridge is running.

How much charge is going into my battery - With a battery charger (or alternator) connected to the SOURCE side and the aux battery connected to the LOAD side, the Watt Meter shows the charging current into the battery, the voltage and charging power at the battery and accumulates the charge (Ah) and energy (Wh) into the battery.

What is the output of my solar panel  - With a solar panel connected to the SOURCE side and solar regulator connected to the LOAD side, the Watt Meter shows the charging current into the regulator, the voltage and charging power at the solar panel and accumulates the charge (Ah) and energy (Wh) into the regulator.

How much charge is my solar panel putting into my battery - Now with a solar regulator connected to the SOURCE side and battery connected to the LOAD side, the Watt Meter shows the charging current into the battery, the voltage and charging power at the regulator and accumulates the charge (Ah) and energy (Wh) into the battery.
