Open plotter power down
obviously, closing down the PI properly is the way OP and the PI should be operated but on a boat I am usually trying to get everything closed down and stowed before I leave the boat and often just want to hit the DC master and cut all power.  I wondered if anybody had connected a UPS type device that would safely shutdown the PI in the event of Power loss/removal?

I saw PIJuice and this looked like a good option - anybody try it?
My answer is yes. I went even a step further with the UPS challenge Smile
You can see my explanation on this video:
very Cool !!!
Great work! Did you configure the PI Juice to automatically power down on removal of the boat power supply and auto startup on reconnection?
