The PiSugar S and PiSugar S Pro can power the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Zero without hook the SBCs to mains power. Both uninterruptible power supplies can even be recharged through solar power, too.

The PiSugar Kitchen has released a new set of battery add-ons for the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Zero. The company has called its new models the PiSugar S and PiSugar S Pro, which follow the first and second generation add-ons that it released in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

The PiSugar S is the smaller of the two add-ons and is the accessory that the PiSugar Kitchen has designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero W. The uninterruptible power supply (UPS) contains a 1,200 mAh battery and has an input and output of 5V/2A. The PiSugar Kitchen has included a GPIO button for turning on a Pi Zero and claims that you can expand the board with solar or wireless charging.

While the PiSugar S should provide more than six hours of battery life to the Zero W, the PiSugar S Pro should deliver up to ten hours to the Raspberry Pi 3B. Specifically, the PiSugar S Pro has a 5,000 mAh battery, along with a 5V/3A input and output. Like the PiSugar S, the PiSugar S Pro has a GPIO button for switching on a Raspberry Pi and supports solar/wireless charging expansion.

The PiSugar S Pro is available to order for US$29.99 through Tindie. By contrast, the PiSugar S costs US$27.99. Unfortunately, the latter is out of stock at the time of publication.
