Description

Need a simple way to power a Raspberry Pi from a DC source? This Raspberry Pi Power HAT solves this problem! Onboard is a fused and reverse polarity protected DC input coupled to a beefy 3A 5V DC/DC converter. Connected to a 12V automotive battery, this board is happy running the Pi under heavy load all day long.

To make this board even more useful, we have also included two SparkFun Qwiic / Adafruit STEMMA QT connectors – this is an easy-connect system for I2C sensors, actuators, shields using pre-built cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. Add sensors and further expand your Pi’s monitoring and control capabilities as you need, with no soldering required.

This version is fully assembled – no soldering required. Just hook it up and you are good to go! The board is compatible with all “A” and “B” versions of the Raspberry Pi (Pi A+, B+, 2, 3, 3A+, 3B+, and Pi 4)

    Though the recommended input is 7 – 16V the Max Reg Voltage is listed as 36V. Does this mean that it would work with an input of 24V from a 3D printer PSU, and, if so, would it have a reasonable lifespan? This seems like a neater solution than bodged USB cables and buck converters.

      Hey Paul,

      While the regulator is rated to 36V, this chip does get quite hot as you cross over 20V input at higher loads (greater than 1.5A continuous). If you were to address the heating, change / disable the PWR LED (it cant tolerate much more than ~18V with the current limiting resistor in place), and use it with a fairly stable input (the input cap is only rated to 35V) you could go over the 16V recommendation. Let us know if you have any additional questions!
