- LTC2941 by ADI
- Has a very high charge accuracy of 1%
- Can only support batteries with a terminal voltage between 3.3 and 5V
- Interface using I2C
This module is ideal for projects where you need to monitor the battery charge state of the connected battery (single-cell Li-Ion batteries).
Note: Don’t use appliances which draw higher initial current, such as motors, servos or otherwise the IC will be damaged and the surface will be very hot.
These 2 RTCs are able to keep track of the time of your Raspberry Pi projects even though the power gets cut off to the Raspberry Pi. They can basically keep track of seconds, minutes, hours, date of the month, day of the week and the year with a leap year. Also, these interface with the Raspberry Pi using the I2C interface.
Note: A battery is not included with the package.
So what’s the difference between these 2 Pi RTC modules?
This week we plan to do something very exciting. If you guys are interested in building a project using any of these modules, please leave a comment in the comment section down below about your project idea and we will giveaway these modules to the person with the most interesting idea. So, guys its time for you to show your creativity.
