The Power Management HAT is a smart power bank designed for Raspberry Pi. With the embedded Arduino MCU and RTC, the HAT features auto power management function which allows the Pi to work more power-efficient and more safely.
If you're looking for some convenient utilities for your long-term working Raspberry Pi, such as longer battery life, or auto power on-off control, this Power Management HAT would be the ideal choice.
By auto starting up on a specified period, and auto shutdown at other times, the HAT can greatly save battery life. It will monitor the operating voltage/current status of the Raspberry Pi in real-time and can be configured to shut the Pi down according to the operating status. What's more, it comes with a handy power switch for easy on or off (safely shutdown the Pi by software), to avoid data loss caused by unplugging the power supply.
