Adding an LED power switch and UPS features to my Raspberry

by BigChungus on Wed Feb 13, 2019 11:30 pm

I have a Raspberry Pi that I have configured for flight tracking, and I plan on installing it into a case with some lithium cells to act as a UPS

I'd love to have a nice LED switch on the outside which can power on and off the Pi, and also have a PowerBoost 1000C to act as a UPS

I have some questions hopefully which have nice easy answers, if anyone has any advice

* Is it possible to get the 1000C to quit all output (But allow charging) once the Pi is turned off, and then be able to power everything back on with the same button?
* If I got a switch like this (https://www.adafruit.com/product/917) How would I connect it all together to get the desired effect? Connect to the 1000C, connect to the Pi?
* If I want to connect 3 x unprotected 18650's in parallel, it looks like the 1000C has the right protection apart from under voltage. What's the easiest way to get under voltage protection to my cells?
