The X720 is a multi-functional expansion board for all current models of the Raspberry Pi using 40 pin header.It provides intelligent and safe power management, remote power on/wake on lan, safe shutdown and full poweroff through software, an advanced uninterruptible power supply, second 10/100M fast ethernet, and a real- time clock. The X720 reserves the 40-pin header that can be stacked with other Raspberry Pi accessory boards for enhanced applications. The X720 can also be used with the X820 (2.5" HDD/SSD Shield) and X850 (Msata SSD shield) for safe data backup.


  • Smart Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
  • Provides continuous operations for up to 10hours (depending on battery type used)
  • 5.1V 3000mA Power Backup for even the most demanding Pi 3 set ups
  • 18650 dual Cells Lithium Ion Holder
  • Can work with single or dual 18650 Lithium Ion battery
  • Integrated battery protection circuit
  • Integrated over current protection and over voltage protection
  • Intergrated Maxim's fuel-gauge systems (Reading battery voltage and precentage via i2c)
  • Intelligent automatic charging and discharging
  • Automatic safe shutdown when battery low (voltage <3.0V)
  • On-board LED blinking when the battery condition low (voltage <3.0V)
  • On-board LEDs show the status of battery charging and discharging

Intelligent and safe power management

  • Press the power button to turn on
  • Press the button and hold for 1~2seconds to reboot
  • Press the button and hold for 3~7seconds for safe shutdown
  • Press the button and hold for >8seconds to force shutdown
  • Supports safe shutdown and full poweroff through software
  • On-board LED shows the status of power on, reboot and shutdown

Integrated second 10/100M fast ethernet

  • Supports remote power on/wake on lan via Link-change, Magic packet, MS wakeup frame
  • On-board LED shows the status of power on/wakeup packet indication

Integrated Hardware Real Time Clock (RTC) with Battery Back-Up

  • Keeps track of the time while the Raspberry Pi is switched off
  • Allows the Raspberry Pi to retrieve the current date and time when it is switched back on
  • Uses the most precise DS3231 RTC real time clock
  • Uses the 18650 battery to maintain the date and time - no additioanl battery required

Reserved 40-pin stackable Header for Add-On Boards

  • Powers the Raspberry Pi via the 40-pin header - no additional cabling required
  • Works with all current models of the Raspberry Pi using a 40 pin header
  • Power management and second ethernet can still work without battery
  • On-board DC jack (5.5*2.5mm) and micro-USB socket convenient for power input
  • On-board connector allowing to connect external power switch and DIY your perfect case
  • Mounting holes and standoffs provide mechanical stability of the Raspberry Pi and X720 assembly
