Pi 3B+ w/ Hyperpixle & lipo Shim


Can anyone verify before I solder a Lipo Shim to the Pi 3B+ what is the output specs of the Lipo Shim, will it be able to power this combo of products?

Thank you


The product page for the LIPO Shim says “Supplies up to 1.5A continuous current” https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/lipo-shim
A Pi 3B draws about 400ma when idle, https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#topPower A 3B+ is likely close to that, maybe even a little more. It’s not listed though. That will go up when the Pi does any work like driving the display etc.
What current the hyperpixel draws isn’t listed? https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/hyperpixel Somebody from Pimoroni will have to supply that info.
My gut feeling is 1.5A is going to be iffy.
