Power Your Raspberry Pi With These Low-Cost Battery Add-ons

PiSugar Kitchen has released two new low-cost battery add-ons, the PiSugar S and PiSugar S Pro, that promise to power a Raspberry Pi for several hours on a charge.

As spotted by Notebook Check, the PiSugar S is a diminutive uninterruptible power supply (UPS) designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero W. It features a 1,200 mAh battery with 5V 2A input and output said to be able to power a connected Zero W for more than 6 hours.

The PiSugar S Pro is a slightly larger UPS and is compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3B, 3B+ and 4B. This one boasts a 5,000 mAh battery with 5V 3A input and output. PiSugar Kitchen claims the device is able to keep a Raspberry Pi 3B running for over  10 hours.

PiSugar Kitchen hasn’t provided exact measurements for either PiSugar S model, but they mounted directly to the connected Raspberry Pi, so they should be the same size. The batteries for both models also seem to align fairly well with their boards.
