All of the existing battery power things seem to be flawed in some fundamental way that means you cannot just bung one inside a project and then carry it around. They either steal all the GPIO pins or have lots of fixed position buttons which, when under a HAT and inside a case, mean you cannot turn the thing on. Or they are designed for a little Arduino or something and don’t give enough power for a Pi.
The PiJuice looked exciting, it got kickstarter funded at the end of March 2015 and they were going to select a manufacturer very soon and then where did it go? Maybe they got abducted by slave traders from Orion.
On November 27 2015*, Pimoroni showed a prototype of a little lipo power supply and it looked great. However, it vanished. Where did it go?
Lke Jacob Marley and his giant chains, are we destined to be lugging around dangling USB mobile power banks forever? Am I wrong, am I missing some great thing?
