This is the shield developed for powering the Bioscope from a single 3.7V Li-Ion cell.
It provides the Raspberry PI with 5V for the USB and HDMI, and 3.3V for normal operation. Further it contains a 3rd auxiliary 3.3V supply which can be switched on and off by one of the GPIO pins. The Li-Ion cell can be charged by the shield while still providing power to the Raspberry PI.
