       Product Overview  

Introducing the X1200, 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 X1200 is perfect for even the most demanding Raspberry Pi setups.

Reliable Power Backup: The X1200 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 X1200 delivers reliable and consistent power supply.

Enhanced Power Management: One of the standout features of the X1200 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 X1200 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 X1200 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 X1200 ensures quick recharging of the UPS, making it ready to provide backup power whenever needed.

Versatile Design: The X1200 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 X1200 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 X1200 UPS expansion board. Experience peace of mind with its advanced features and robust power backup capabilities. Trust the X1200 to ensure uninterrupted operation and safeguard your valuable data.

   Safety Instructions & warnings  
  - It is essential to read and understand these safety instructions and warnings before charging your batteries.
- Lithium Polymer and Li-ion batteries are volatile. Failure to read and follow the instructions below may result in fire, personal
  injury, and damage to property if charged or used improperly.
- Never make a wrong polarity connection when charging or discharging battery packs. Always double-check the polarity of the
  battery's connector to ensure that "+" is connected to "+" and "-" is connected to "-".

- Do not mix and use old batteries with new batteries, or batteries with different brand names.

- Lithium batteries have a limited cycle life. Please replace old batteries with new ones when they reach their service life or when
  they are two years old, whichever comes first.

- When charging the Battery Pack, please place the battery in a fireproof container. Do not leave the UPS shield on wood material
  or carpet unattended.

- Keep the UPS shield away from children to ensure their safety.
