      X1203 is an innovative uninterruptible power supply (UPS) expansion board designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi 5B. With its advanced features and robust power backup capabilities, the X1203 is perfect for even the most demanding Raspberry Pi setups.

      Reliable Power Backup: The X1203 provides a stable 5.1V 5000mA power backup, ensuring uninterrupted operation of your Raspberry Pi. Whether you are running resource-intensive applications or powering multiple peripherals, the X1203 delivers reliable and consistent power supply.

      Enhanced Power Management: One of the standout features of the X1203 is its enhanced power management system. It intelligently monitors the power status of the Raspberry Pi and automatically cuts off power when the Pi is shut down. This helps optimize battery life by entering an ultra-low standby power consumption mode. It ensures efficient operation and maximizes the lifespan of the UPS battery.

      Seamless Power Switching: Equipped with AC power loss and power adapter failure detection, the X1203 seamlessly switches to backup power in the event of a power outage or power adapter failure. This feature guarantees that your Raspberry Pi remains operational and protected from unexpected power disruptions.

      Convenient Features: The X1203 offers convenient features such as auto power-on, enabling your Raspberry Pi to automatically boot up when power is restored. It also supports full power-off from software, allowing you to safely shut down your Raspberry Pi without manual intervention.

      Fast Charging: With fast charging capabilities of up to 3000mA, the X1203 ensures quick recharging of the UPS, making it ready to provide backup power whenever needed. 

      Flexible charging:
      You can use either type-c or DC5521 to charge the battery. When using type-c you can use the PD27W power supply that powers the Raspberry Pi 5, when you use the DC5521 you can use a variety of power adapters in the 6-18V range.

      Versatile Design: The X1203 is designed to be attached on bottom and don't use the 40-pin header, enabling easy stacking with other Raspberry Pi accessory boards. This versatility allows you to expand the functionality of your Raspberry Pi and create enhanced applications tailored to your specific needs.

      Seamless Data Backup: The X1203 is compatible with our range of storage products, providing seamless integration for safe and reliable data backup. Your valuable data remains protected, even in the event of a power failure.

      Enhance the reliability and performance of your Raspberry Pi 5B with the X1203 UPS expansion board. Experience peace of mind with its advanced features and robust power backup capabilities. Trust the X1203 to ensure uninterrupted operation and safeguard your valuable data.

      When you use an external battery box or battery pack, please pay attention to the positive and negative poles, generally speaking, the red wire is the positive pole, the black wire is the negative pole
