The Raspberry Pi needs to be powered up on edge, always. The HAT will make you sure your device will be powered. You will have full control over the power of it! The true uninterruptable power supply for Raspberry Pi automatically switches between different power sources without causing a reset or failure on your board. A real-time clock(RTC) featured an onboard ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller lets you schedule power cycles and wake-up or soft shut down Raspberry Pi remotely. At power-sensitive applications, the device can be entered deep sleep modes and save battery. Dynamic power management means will share the load between the main source and battery, will protect the circuit.

Questions and answers of the customers
Q How much power can this board deliver to the raspberry pi? Considering the adapter for the pi4 is... answer nowAsked by 8 December 2019 3:48 PMonAnswered by the admin
- The UPS HAT can supply 3.5A Peak current to the RPi 5v pins. However, we do not recommend it to run over 2.5A for a long time(5min+). There is no problem with periodic high current draw, for example, 3A for 1 minute and then 5 minutes for 2A and below current consumption, such as scenarios work fine.will work easily in your example.
- Yes, there is.
Q When you indicate 3.7V to 14V power input range, is this the optimal voltage range or the maximal... answer nowAsked by 27 November 2019 2:21 PMonAnswered by the admin
It can work with 14.7V but we do not recommend. Since UPS HAT is not designed for the vehicle, there is no protection for such elevations and can be damaged.
We recommend using a voltage regulator.
Q Can the RTC be used by the rpi itself? Because that would be *incredibly* useful. answer nowAsked by 22 November 2019 3:59 PMonAnswered by the admin
We use the RTC inside the processor. It's possible because the processor is always on and will communicate with Raspberry Pi.
Q Can I use this product along with raspberry pi POE HAT as additional power supply. answer nowAsked by 19 November 2019 3:06 AMonAnswered by the admin
Sorry, it doesn't work with POE HAT.
Q do you provide an API to get the details ( battery level %, charge in V and AMP,, discharge usage... answer nowAsked by 18 November 2019 6:51 AMonAnswered by the admin
1.We are currently working mainly on hardware. We can do it in the future.
2. It varies depending on the capacity of the battery you are using and the Raspberry Pi model. We will publish a table about this in the future.
Q Would this shield allow for logic sequences such as, "Halt RasPi after n seconds of power disconn... answer nowAsked by 15 November 2019 4:14 PMonAnswered by the admin
Yes, it allows.
Have a nice day.
