Product Description

Pi Supply – the add on board that makes it easy to manage power for your Raspberry Pi. Pi Supply makes it simple to turn your Raspberry Pi on and off without repeatedly plugging and unplugging “wall warts” and USB cables – an essential piece of kit for all Raspberry Pi users.

WHAT IS IT?

The Pi Supply is the solution to all of your Raspberry Pi power management problems. It is an “intelligent”, ATX style power supply switch for the revolutionary Raspberry Pi computer. It allows you to leave all of the power wires from the “wall wart” all the way through to the Pi permanently connected with just the quick push of a switch to turn the power on or off. Simple!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once you have finished using your Raspberry Pi, you just shutdown using the sudo halt command, and then a couple of minutes after the full and safe shutdown the Pi Supply cuts the power to the computer. From this point, once again, all you would need to do to restore power to the Pi is touch the on button.

There is also a hard power off button for use in emergencies which immediately cuts the power to your Raspberry Pi. Remember to only use this button when absolutely necessary (e.g. Pi has been frozen for a long time) as it risks corruption of the files on your SD card if done at the wrong moment.

What makes Pi Supply superior to other makeshift solutions available is that it allows you to restart the Raspberry Pi using the sudo reboot command without the power turning itself off. Perfect!

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

We have made the Pi Supply a self-solder kit which is quick and simple to put together – even for an absolute beginner to electronics. This means as well as being a nifty little bit of kit to manage your Pi’s power, it is also a great intro to electronics and soldering. As you can see from the pictures the input and output of the Pi Supply is fed by a standard USB connection, and we even provide you with the USB cable you need so that this unit, once soldered together, is essentially “plug-and-play” with your existing “wall wart” power supply unit.

We have even packaged the circuit into a small profile so that it fits neatly into your workstation. Pi Supply is an essential piece of kit for all Raspberry Pi users!

 

NOTE: This is a kit that needs to be assembled. Basic soldering skills are required.
