With the surprise release of the Raspberry Pi 4, I started receiving questions about compatibility with the LiFePO4wered/Pi+. Here's what I found out! Read the full update.

I can't believe the campaign has already reached its final week! We're still on track to possibly reach $20K before it's over, so if you know anyone who could use a LiFePO4wered/Pi+ for their project _please tell them about it_ and help spread the word before it's too late! The retail price will go up once the campaign is over -- don't tell me I didn't warn you. :) Read the full update.
On the campaign page I mention the previous iterations of this project, the LiFePO4wered/Pi and LiFePO4wered/Pi3. Since many backers may not be familiar with how the current LiFePO4wered/Pi+ came to be, I thought it might be interesting to recap a little history of how this project has grown over time to where it is now.

If you are an applications developer for embedded systems, sending your solutions to remote locations where they can't be reached for reset or service, this update is for you. Read the full update.
Several times now I have received questions like: "Is this a True UPS? Will it allow me to switch between external power and battery power and back without causing a brownout that resets the Pi?" Read the full update.
We hit $10K! And then we blew right past it. :) I had intended to have the next update ready before this happened, but it took me by surprise. In this update I wanted to draw attention to the beautiful clear acrylic case that is featured in the campaign video. Read the full update.
Fully funded after only two days into the campaign - absolutely amazing! I've received some interesting questions and comments already, which I'd like to share for the benefit of other backers. Read the full update.
Whew, we are finally publicly launching the LiFePO4wered/Pi+! Our earliest backers can take advantage of the early bird special, so reserve yours now! Read the full update.
