As many of you Raspberry Pi fans out there may have noticed, we recently added the awesome PiSupply PiJuice HAT to our catalogue, and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying the portability that these quality expansions can offer. However, if you’re like us, and enjoy getting the most out of every project you Make, then you may have also found that the 1820mAh battery included with the PiJuice HAT was simply not large enough to host some of the really exciting projects that we wanted to do.

This is why we’ve chosen to add this 5000mAh PiJuice LiPo Battery to our catalogue too, in order to give your PiJuice HAT even more power to outlast the many hours in each day and maintain excellent operational efficiency throughout. This allows you to create a truly self-sustained Raspberry Pi project when used in conjunction with a natural energy source like Solar Power, as it offers up to 27 hours of standby/idle operations, up to 19 hours of 1080p video playback, and even as much as 12 hours of 1080p video recording – ensuring that your Pi project can last through the dark (solar-free) hours of the day even when performing very demanding tasks.

So, if you love utilising your PiJuice HAT, but are looking for a battery that offers around 2.7 times the capacity of the original BP7X 1820mAh battery, then this is an awesome solution that perfectly replaces the BP7X with very little effort required. And, of course, with PiSupply being the awesome brand that it is, they’ve provided a really handy PiJuice Battery Replacement Guide, so you can simply follow the easy steps and replace your old battery with this much larger 5000mAh LiPo Battery.

Typical Applications for these 5000mAh PiJuice LiPo Batteries:

Although these Li-Po Batteries are primarily stocked for the PiSupply PiJuice HAT, we Makers know that there are many more awesome uses these can be used for, since they are really just large capacity batteries with built-in protection features. However, in running with the PiJuice HAT theme, we can’t help but feel like this battery would be perfect for projects like:

  • Building a Pi-based laptop (affectionately known as a Pi-Top) for travelling, which can last for an entire short to moderate plane, train or car ride, or an entire stopover at an airport, and then be charged when you get access to a wall-outlet or similar supply.
  • Creating a standalone weather monitoring device in a remote location, to warn you of incoming rain, storms, winds or even lightning, and possibly even react to such weather events accordingly.
  • Making a self-sustained nature-watcher, which turns on recording when it sees motion and then goes into idle mode after a certain time of no movement – of course powered by natural energy like solar, wind or even hydro if there’s a constant stream running nearby.

As you may have suspected, many of the use cases for these 5000mAh PiJuice LiPo Batteries are somewhat standard applications for batteries, but of course these applications have been catered towards Raspberry Pi projects due to their intended use. So, whether you want to build one of the awesome projects featured above, or customise your own Pi project to whatever needs you have at home, at the office or even on your family farm, these 5000mAh batteries are ready to offer much more power and a longer lifespan than the original PiJuice HAT batteries.

Pi Supply is a fantastic brand that truly personifies the open-source movement. Having been founded by a single individual with a passion for electronics and audio, and growing into a world-recognised brand that now supplies specialised expansion boards to a global community, the humble hobbyist beginnings of Pi Supply began with the simple need for a convenient power-switch for a Raspberry Pi board stored under a bed.

Since their humble beginnings, Pi Supply have grown to be a full team of passionate Makers who truly live up to the name of “The Maker Emporium”, with over 7 different product ranges launched over Kickstarter, and a growing catalogue of over 800 items now available – all with fantastic after-sales support, which is something that we consider to be extremely valuable.
