So I have an UPS, but I want to be able to shutdown the pi and power it back on (by pressing a button or so). But I don't know how I can do this...

The UPS I'm using is te Geekworm UPS: enter image description here

Someone that can help me with this.

Kindest regards,


  • 10 minutes of Googling has turned up exactly 0 manufacturer's pages, documentation or spec sheets. This appears to be a grey market item with no support. I think, if you can't provide any references for the board, you're unlikely to get workable answers. Do you have anything useful you could add to your question? – goobering Mar 13 '17 at 13:03
  • raspberrypiwiki.com/index.php/Raspi_UPS_HAT_Board This is the wiki? – Robin Mar 13 '17 at 13:11
  • That's some pretty dreadful documentation! I can't find anything useful in there - the attached python example is only for displaying battery information. – goobering Mar 13 '17 at 13:43
  • As far as I know is it an UPS like another? I just need a system to cutoff the power of the battery and then reconnect the power to the pi so it can reboot? – Robin Mar 13 '17 at 13:44

There is an on/off switch on the board, same end as the battery connector. It's small and rectangular between an LED and an indentation on the PCB.

  • Seen that. I've placed a pushbutton parrallel over that button to extend it out of the case. It works fine. I'll approve your answer. – Robin Apr 1 '17 at 20:30
