Raspberry Pi Zero with LiPo


#1

Hello,
I want to make my Raspberry Pi Zero portable and i have a 3.7V LiPo laying around. Can I use this for the Pi Zero?


And are there other options, that can recharge the battery and can be turned off by connecting the enable pin to ground? Maybe a bit cheeper and/or smaller, because i haven’t found any so far.

Thanks in advance!

I haven’t found any. I have several Powerboost 1000c’s on the go here. Some running a Pi Zero some running an A+. The 500c should be enough to run a Zero. Start adding things and 500ma may not be enough, All depends on what you have attached. I went with the 1000c because I have motors etc attached to the Pi Zero’s.
There is this, https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/mp2636-power-booster-charger-module but no enable pin etc.
And the lipo shim, https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/lipo-shim but I don’t think the shim can recharge the battery.
