Power Management HAT for Raspberry Pi, Embedded Arduino MCU and RTC



The Power Management HAT is a smart power bank designed for Raspberry Pi. With the embedded Arduino MCU and RTC, the HAT features auto power management function which allows the Pi to work more power-efficient and more safely.

If you're looking for some convenient utilities for your long-term working Raspberry Pi, such as longer battery life, or auto power on-off control, this Power Management HAT would be the ideal choice.

By auto starting up on a specified period, and auto shutdown at other times, the HAT can greatly save battery life. It will monitor the operating voltage/current status of the Raspberry Pi in real-time and can be configured to shut the Pi down according to the operating status. What's more, it comes with a handy power switch for easy on or off (safely shutdown the Pi by software), to avoid data loss caused by unplugging the power supply.


  • Standard Raspberry Pi 40PIN GPIO extension header, supports Raspberry Pi series boards
  • Onboard ATmega328P MCU, supports Arduino programming
  • Onboard PCF8523 RTC chip, provides precise RTC information
  • Onboard CP2102 UART converter, for UART communication or ATmega328P programming
  • The user-defined button can be used for Raspberry Pi startup, safely shutdown, or other customized function
  • Protection circuits such as power supply anti-reverse, counter-current proof, etc. ensure stable and safe operating
  • Voltage/current monitoring circuit monitors the Raspberry Pi operating voltage and current in real-time
  • Comes with development resources and manual


  • Controller: ATmega328P-AU
  • Communication interface: UART + GPIO
  • Baudrate: 115200bps by default (programmable)
  • Power supply interface: USB port or PH2.0 connector
  • USB power input voltage: 5V
  • PH2.0 power input voltage: DC 7~28V (regulated power supply or lithium battery)
  • Embedded circuits: power supply anti-reverse, counter-current proof, voltage monitoring, current monitoring
  • Mounting hole size: 3.0mm
