We are thrilled to announce the launch of Open UpCell on Crowd Supply! Open UpCell is a sleek, compact USB Type-C PD single-cell lithium-ion battery management system tailored for makers, developers, and hardware enthusiasts. Despite its minimal footprint, the Open UpCell is a powerhouse of features, providing either 5V or 3.3V outputs, up to 14V input, and an i2c interface for battery and charge status monitoring​.

Open UpCell’s versatility shines in powering up your projects, with various methods to juice up your projects using different connectors: male headers, a Seeed Grove (JST-PH) 4 pin connector, a Stemma QT (JST-SH) 4 pin connector, and a 2-pin solder pad​. Its utility extends beyond the just powering the Raspberry Pi, making it a perfect companion for IoT and Edge projects, off-grid applications, DIY wearable tech or any hardware project in need of a reliable battery power solution.

The launch of Open UpCell brings a reliable, adaptable, and cost-effective power management solution closer to the community. Its design ensures a seamless integration with your projects, promising a hassle-free power supply solution for a myriad of applications.
