Tiny solutions for big ideas
The Zero LiPo is a tiny LiPo/Li-Ion power supply shim for all versions of the Raspberry Pi. It aims to give you the most compact Raspberry Pi power supply possible. Perfect for mobile projects that need a discrete, tidy power supply solution. This is not a charger. You will need a separate charger to keep your LiPo/Li-Ion batteries topped up.

Installation options to suit you
The Zero LiPo can be installed as either a permanent or a non-permanent solution. A provided 2x4 0.1-inch female header can be soldered on, which will allow you to remove your Zero LiPo at any time, but will block the GPIO pins. If you are looking for a more permanent installation, you can solder the 0.8mm thick PCB directly to the bottom of your GPIO header. A rubber foot is included so that you can space your Zero LiPo away from your Raspberry Pi.

Big quality in a little package
The Zero LiPo uses the TPS61232 step-up boost converter from Texas Instruments to offer up to 96% efficiency. The board includes power on and battery low indicator LEDs. A low battery warning will alert you when your battery reaches 3.4V, and an automatic shutdown will kick in at 3.0V to protect your battery. During shutdown, due to under-voltage or external selection, the quiescent current is only 15uA sip. The Zero LiPo supplies up to 1.5A continuous current to your own battery.
