Is there a battery that will run a Raspberry PI 4? Thanks.

Certainly. What other constraints do you have, such as "is it reasonably portable"?

Or:
"How long will it last?"
"Is additional hardware required?"
"Is it prone to catching fire?"
"Can it be recharged? How?"

Can it be recharged while in use powering the Pi?
Can is switch from discharging to charging without causing the Pi to reboot?

without any other info on the use-case....
I've always suggested using "8D batteries" in the past..... :mrgreen:
needs buck converters though.... but will definitely last longer.....
