Getting Started

This section leads you through the hardware setup of the Sixfab Power Management & UPS HAT v2.

Keeping this pocket-sized computer Raspberry Pi alive all the time is mandatory for most of the projects. Having them on the edge always needs to be self-powered and recoverable when things went wrong with the electricity.
