Posted by

Want to make your Raspberry Pi projects portable? Add a LiPo rechargeable battery! This may sound tricky, however nothing could be further from the truth  thanks to the new Pimoroni Zero LiPo Power Supply Shim:

Pimoroni Zero LiPo Power Supply Shim from Tronixlabs Australia

This is designed for a Raspberry Pi Zero, and also the latest Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. You can either solder the 0.8mm thick PCB directly to the bottom of your GPIO header for a permanent solution or solder on the provided 2x4 0.1" female header which will allow you to remove your Zero LiPo at any time (but will block the GPIO pins).

The shim can also indicate a low voltage alert with GPIO4, so your software can also monitor the battery. 

A compact solution to making a portable Pi project - and the Pimoroni Zero LiPo Power Supply Shim is in stock now for  only $15.95 including GSTYou can also find matching LiPo batteries in our range. And as always - we'll ship your entire order anywhere in Australia for $5.
