This arrived today and was installed on a Pi 3B+. Software installed and its now up and running nicely.
Noticed the Battery setting was PJZERO_1000.
Remembered a post where, apparently the DIP switches are not set to the default.
Changed the switches the default setting as per the Git Hub guide and the Battery is now a BP7X_1820; the one that came with the device.
First charge cycle:
With the Pi powered up the charge light kept flashing; the Icon and application said 98%.
Used SW1 to power down the Pi and then again to turn off power.
The charge light flashed for another 2 minutes or so then stayed on, indicating full charge
Used SW1 to turn the Pi back on and the flashing started again and the Icon said 97%.
This time when it was powered off the light went on almost straight away, no flashing.
All of this indicates to me the Pi Juice is performing perfectly.
Now to run it just on battery and time how long till lasts.
Also bought a 6000mAH LiPO for the Pi Juice, intend to use this as the 1820mAH probably wont last that long. Will post results after test.
EDIT: Pi connected to HDMI and Ethernet, Wireless Keyboard/Mouse.
Lasted about 2 hours on 1820mAH Battery. @Jonathan95351
Pi was not doing anything, just powered up with nothing but normal OS loaded.
Configured Pi Juice app to shutdown Pi and disconnect power when 3.6V reached
Pi reboots when battery charge reaches 7%.
The Pi Juice is perfect for what I want to do, but the included battery is a waste, 2 hours is not really long enough. If the Pi was connected to mains and the Pi Juice used to keep Pi going for when mains failed, it would be great. My project is for the Pi to be mobile and last for about 6 hours at least.
EDIT: Using SW1 to shutdown the Pi and disconnect power will leave it that way.
If on battery and it becomes discharged; the Pi Juice will shutdown the Pi and disconnect power.
When the battery is connected to a charging source and reaches 7% the Pi Juice will boot the Pi again.
This makes for a completely automated UPS system. Really impressed with this little device.
Well designed and worth the cost.
