The battery connector works only with single-cell LiPO batteries - see the recommended essential products for some inspiration. Never connect Alkaline or NiMH batteries to this connector.

The PiicoDev® LiPo Expansion Board for Raspberry Pi Pico is a great way to start experimenting with Raspberry Pi Pico/RP2040. Use the on-board PiicoDev connector to quickly and easily connect with the PiicoDev family of sensor modules without soldering. Each GPIO is broken out to a female-header with labels visible on the top surface. Four mounting holes make it easier to mount your Pico securely in your next project. The on-board charge LED illuminates during charging and will turn off when charging is complete. If no LiPo cell is connected the charge LED may be on or off.

  • Breaks out each Pico pin, with handy labels
  • Take your project on the go with on-board LiPo battery charging (not suitable for Alkaline or NiMH batteries)
  • PiicoDev connector, compatible with Qwiic and STEMMA QT (3.3V only)
  • Manufactured and supported in Australia by Core Electronics

Raspberry Pi Pico is not included - click here to buy one with pre-soldered pins (pointing down); or if you're comfortable soldering pins yourself, get one without pins

Technical Details

  • Dimensions: 51x51mm
  • M2.5 mounting holes
  • Charge current: approx 220mA / 440mA (when Fast Charge jumper is soldered)
  • PiicoDev connector: I2C0 (SCL:Pin 9, SDA:Pin 8)
  • PiicoDev connector pinout:
    • 1 GND
    • 2 3.3V
    • 3 SDA
    • 4 SCL
  • The I2C Bus presented at the PiicoDev connector contains series 120Ohm resistances to prevent destructive signal undershoot. Refer to the schematic for more information. To operate without these series resistors, users may connect directly to the GPIO instead.

PiicoDev Overview

PiicoDev is a ecosystem designed for rapid prototyping and maker education. The range includes:

Here are some of the features we have baked into PiicoDev:

  • Unified MicroPython libraries. The same MicroPython code examples will work on all supported platforms.
  • Simple-and-expandable connections. Modules can be connected using a 4-pin connector and daisy-chained to expand projects.
  • Breakout pins. Every module has a breakout section for optional advanced uses.
  • Consistent size. We have taken care to ensure modules are consistent sizes so that they easy for 3D printing cases, stacking and experimenting with.
  • Creative freedom. Simmer all of these features together and you end up with lots of creative freedom while still being a hands-on electronics experience.

PiicoDev electronics modules are designed and manufactured in Newcastle. They are priced for makers and education alike (affordable!). Get in touch with us if you have any questions.
