PiJuice – portable solar power for your Pi

Get PiJuice and find a great alternative to ridiculous extension cables and giant portable batteries

We like to talk about how great the Pi is for portable projects in both the magazine and on the website, however one of the problems we run into when using the Raspberry Pi out and about is getting sufficient power to it for long enough. If only there was a way to harness the power of a natural energy source outdoors.

Power on the go
Power on the go

Enter PiJuice, a solar power supply design specifically for the Raspberry Pi. Not only does it turn sunlight into power for the Pi, it also does it smartly using a real-time clock and programmable switches to enhance the Pi in the process.

The PiJuice is currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, so you can pledge some money towards it and secure one for yourself.
