Can't find the answer you're looking for? We've shared some of our most frequently asked questions to help you out!

Is it possible to use the Power HAT and the Modem&IoT Kits together?

Yes, you can use it together. Attach the Power HAT to Raspberry Pi first, then attach Base HAT on it.

Will the HAT work fine without the UPS battery inserted?

Using the HAT without a battery is not recommended.

Can multiple 18650 cells be connected in parallel to give greater battery capacity?

No, it can't. The Power HAT only supports 18650 protected 1 cell 3.7V Li-ion or Li-Po rechargeable batteries.

Is there a way to connect external buttons to the S1 & S2 buttons?

Yes, there are solder pads for both switches on the underside of the board, aligned with the switches on the top.

Does it work with only battery power?

Yes, it works.

If I connect an external battery on J9 pin, does the hat manage its recharging and use its power on first?

Only one battery can be connected to Power HAT.

Can I use this product along with the PoE HAT?

It doesn't work with PoE HAT. If you want to use PoE, you have to use a PoE splitter. We recommend that you use this type of product. Note that you need to plug the splitter USB port to UPS HAT.

Does it work with the unprotected battery?

No, it doesn't work.
