UPS PIco - using other brands replacement battery

Post by gunjal.satish » Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:20 pm

I am planning buy 'UPS PIco - Uninterruptible Power Supply & I2C Control HAT' for Raspberry Pi Zero W. Requirement is to have at least 8 hours of on time. Since 'UPS PIco - LiPO Battery 8000mAh' is out of stock will Sparkfun 'Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 6Ah' will work in place of existing 450mAh LiPO?

SparkFun battery link: https://www.mgsuperlabs.co.in/estore/Ba ... attery-6Ah

Also please suggest if there is any other better alternative battery with better energy denisty and small size..

No, that battery won't work as it looks like the polarity is round the wrong.

We can only guarantee batteries sold from us or PiModules to be compatible with the PIco

Thanks for your response.

Can you please help me with 'Item Option' while ordering UPS PIco.
Did not understand the item option Terminals Block PCB, Bi Stable Relay to PCB (assembled), Bi Stable Relay. Since we are using raspberry pi as wearable recording device do we need above item option??
