Re: Will this Ups Design work?

From what I could tell by reading the article you referenced, the circuit doesn't do anything but hold up the 5V supply for a few extra seconds. The Pi is not aware that the power has failed until it's too late and will just hard reset when the voltage drops below its minimum requirement. You would...

Re: Will this Ups Design work?

I don't think that it will work for you. The supercapacitors will just hold up the 5V supply for an additional 80 seconds before the power fails, so it will still force a hard shutdown on the Pi. UPS is hard to do. A real UPS has to inform the Pi that the power has failed and allow it to perform a ...

Will this Ups Design work?

First off I want to say I'm very new to this. I'm currently am in the process of making a car pi however with the hard shutdown I keep having problems. I have looked for many ups designs however they are far too complex for me. I have found this easy to understand instructions and just wanted to con...
