Portable Raspberry Pi charger: for autonomous electronic projects

The Raspberry Pi Battery Pack includes a rechargeable 4000 mAh lithium-ion battery and a charging circuit.

Originally designed for charging cell phones, iPhones and tablets, it’s also very effective for powering projects on Raspberry Pi since it delivers a constant 5 V voltage at a current of 2.1 A thanks to an internal power converter.

Simply plug your portable battery into your Raspberry Pi board using the micro-B USB cable provided to operate your project for several hours.

Your charger’s autonomy will depend on the device being powered, whether a Raspberry Pi alone or a Raspberry Pi connected to other devices (small displays, WiFi dongles, wireless keyboard, etc.).

Useful information about the portable 4000 mAh charger

In principle it’s possible to charge your portable battery while also powering your microcontroller, but efficiency is then reduced by 80% on both sides, which is why you’ll probably find it difficult to continue powering a device requiring a current up to 2.1 A.

The procedure will however work perfectly well with any device requiring a lower current. The Battery Pack’s on/off button serves only to turn the illuminated charge status display on and off.

You cannot turn the charger off while it’s connected to your Raspberry Pi, unless you use a USB cable equipped with a switch that will shut off the flow of current between the charger and the device being powered.
