The Raspberry Pi ecosystem has plenty of HATs at its disposal, as we have previously reported. However, now the Foundation behind the popular single-board computer (SBC) has released the PoE+ HAT, an add-in board that does exactly what it says on the tin (Power over Ethernet).
According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the PoE+ HAT supports 802.at PoE+, giving a Raspberry Pi board up to 25.5 W of power. For reference, the HAT supports the 802.3 af standard too, should you have an older Raspberry Pi.
The PoE+ HAT also included an active fan to keep your SBC cool, should you need it. The Pi Foundation states that the PoE+ HAT is compatible with the Pi 3B+ and 4B; incidentally, it has a 37-57 V DC input voltage. The PoE+ HAT is orderable now globally. The Pi Foundation has set the HAT's price at £18 in the UK, US$20 in the US and €19.95 in the Eurozone. The Pi Foundation does not sell the PoE+ HAT directly, though. All retailer details and links can be found on the Pi Foundation's product page.
