Power your favorite electronic kit with green energy! The LiPo Rider Pro is an enhancement of LiPo Rider. It can supply higher load output than LiPo Rider. The LiPo Rider Pro board allows you ride the solar wave to run your favorite 5V device. The LiPo Rider Pro board is the ideal green power solution for your outdoor sensor design. Attach the LiPo Rider Pro board to your sensor board and it can run on solar power forever! It can also be used to charge mobile phone.
The LiPo Rider Pro is extremely affordable and easy to use. No programming is required. Plug it in and it works. The internal charger IC handles all the power flow between the various components.
In case solar power is not sufficient, the mini USB port allows you to charge your lithium battery through USB. It can also be used to program your kit without detaching the LiPo Rider Pro board.

Hello, only 3.7V batter is supported.
HI i am planning to make a solar panel charger for poly li-ion battery. I found the lipo rider pro and the poly li-ion 6600mAh battery. But for the solar panel, 3W solar panel 138x160, it says"To prevent any damage to boards that accept a narrow range
The lipo rider pro can tolerate a peak voltage about 10v, so when you plug the solar panel into the lipo rider pro, you don't worry about that a high peak voltage would damage the board. And of course , you can only use VCC and GND as a output without
We need to switch on and off the Rider every 30mins. We are planning to do it by giving an external signal to the enable pin. Is possible to achieve this?
Why not,maybe you use Relay to control its connection? Anyway,you can do it.Good luck.
The wiki states"Scalable to multiple lithium batteries and large/multiple solar panels through simple end-user modifications", are there any guides to do this?
I'm more interested in larger solar panels, any hints?
is this board certified? if yes, what kind of certifications does it have?
Hi,sorry, this board is not certified. it hasn't got the certification.with a happy day.
Is it possible to detect which source the power is active from - USB in or battery? I am using a Raspberry Pi that has 3v digital GPIO. Basically, I would like to find out when the main power has gone and battery power is active. When battery
I sure did. Far side of the diode of 5v in, and R27 (ground) - this will be high when power in and low when no power in and battery active.
