The Pi UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) guarantees the operation of your Raspberry Pi by using regular AA batteries (see illustration). In the event of power failure the Pi UPS can either shut down your Raspberry Pi properly or continue keep it running until external power is available again. So there is no risk of data loss and system damage. Running applications on the Raspberry Pi are thus permanently protected.

The Pi UPS also works with the Beaglebone from Texas Instruments and other microcontrollers like the popular Arduino.

In-Car Use

If the Raspberry Pi is used in a car to connect electronic equipment via USB ports, a proper shutdown is guaranteed as soon as the engine is turned off. Whenever the ignition is restarted, the Raspberry Pi will reboot too.


If the Raspberry Pi is connected to a TV, e.g. a XBMC Media Center with Internet access, all currently running applications will be shut down and terminated properly as soon as the TV is turned off. Once the TV is turned on again, the Raspberry Pi restarts too.


The CW2. software package includes, among others, a diagnostics module to control the supplied voltage. A monitoring tool provides information when the external power drops and thus becomes critical. An internal statistic evaluates data on these power supply movements.
