The tiny little LiPo/LiIon power supply shim for all versions of the Raspberry Pi!


0.8mm thick PCB

Shaped to sit as low as possible on the Raspberry Pi

2-pole JST connector ideal for most LiPo/LiIon batteries

Power and low battery LED indicators

Supplies up to 1.5A continuous current (15uA quiescent current)

Low battery warning at 3.4V (asserts GPIO #4 low)

Automatic shutdown at 3.0V to protect your battery

VBAT+, GND, and EN pins available to break out

2x6 0.1" female header (optional, for non permanent installation)

Includes rubber foot to space LiPo SHIM away from your Raspberry Pi

LiPo SHIM pinout

Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W

Requires soldering


One-line installer that will initiate a clean shutdown when the low battery warning is triggered and GPIO #4 is pulled low. More details are available here in the GitHub repository.


This is not a charger. You will need a separate charger to keep your LiPo/LiIon batteries topped up!
