The Raspberry Pi’s SD card is vulnerable to file system failure in the event of a power failure. A small UPS called StromPi solves the problem of defective file systems.


For the Raspberry Pi to shut down gently in the event of a voltage loss, the so-called StromPi can be used. This plug-in board detects a voltage drop and then initiates the necessary steps to shut down the Raspberry Pi. The file system on your SD card will be shut down as usual.

In order for the Raspberry Pi to have enough power available for the shutdown process, you will also need this battery unit:

So the next power outage can come – your Raspberry should now bott up as usual, even if the power was gone.
