Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) For Raspberry Pi With PiJuice

Never worry about blackouts again ⬛ and always shutdown your Raspberry Pi safely 🦺 with the power of a UPS HAT.
The full guide – https://core-electronics.com.au/tutorials/ups-with-raspberry-pi-4.html

In this we will go through reasons to use a Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), the features of the PiJuice UPS HAT (Hardware Attached on TOP) for Raspberry Pi and the assembly process of a PiJuice. It will also demonstrate it functioning, present different powering options, how to unlock the PiJuice settings for Raspberry Pi OS and dive into the extra functionality of the PiJuice settings. Other UPS HATs from DFROBOT that work with Raspberry Pi Boards that are good alternatives to the PiJuice are also presented and a whole bunch of ideal projects that can utilise a UPS are given to help inspire some future plans.

    Will it work with apcupsd?

    Can we know how long will the ups work without power supply just leaving the raspberry pi on? Just to see the power of it… Can you do a test with like playing an youtube video and then "cutt off" the power to see how long the UPS handles?

    Would be nice if it didn’t wipe out all the GPIO pins
