    Mini UPS (Battery Suggestion)


      Hello guys,


      As I am working on my project i realised that every time there is a power outage or i accidentally take off the plug of my power supply i need to reset my raspberry pi Zero W which is my MQTT broker. So i looked on the internet and found some Raspberry pi and Arduino UPS but they are expensive .... The cheapest that i found was about £45  so i decided to build my own....I found some schematics and components but the only thing that left are the batteries. In the beginning i thought to go with 3-4 (18650-Li ion) in parallel  and a voltage booster but then i saw some others using LiPo batteries. So my questions is what type of batteries are best? Li-Ion or LiPo Batteries? Or are there any others better?


      Thanks nicolaoscon
