X710 Power Management Board


The X710 is a power management expansion board for all current models of the Raspberry Pi using a 40-pin header. It provides 5A of continuous output current over a wide 6V to 36V operating input range with excellent load and line regulation,intelligent and safe power management, safe shutdown and full poweroff through software, and a low noise cooling fan which enables the use of the Raspberry Pi in extreme conditions including very high temperature environments. The X710 also reserves the 40-pin header that can be stacked with other Raspberry Pi accessory boards for enhanced applications.


FOR USE WITH Raspberry Pi 4 Model B/ Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+/Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/Raspberry Pi 2 Model B/Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+
OPERATING SYSTEM - Raspbian Stretch

- Safe shutdown function tested for Raspbian, other operating systems to be tested and advised

  • - Output: 5V 5%, Max 5A
  • - DC power jack : 5.5*2.5mm, Positive Tip
  • - Board size: 65 x 57mm
  • - Full poweroff through software is not supported when using external latching power switch
  • - Don't connect any 5V-powered device to XH2.54 power input connector.
  • - Do not apply power to your Raspberry Pi via the Pi's Micro-USB socket or type C socket

I received the X710 board, connected to my RaspPi4B, installed the software as recommended above and unfortunately could not make it fully functional: ON works, OFF power cut does too (after 8 sec of holding a button); safe shut down DOES NOT. Any help would be much appreciated!

The other thing I like about this board is, if I want to run 12V,15V,etc. accessories,up to your input voltage at a later time, it gives you that ability too. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!

Will there be, or can there be software written to control fan speeds for these X power boards? Just curious. Thanks for and replies in advance.

With a good power supply you, can effectively provide a constant 5V with up to 17A of usage. I'm using a Dell power supply that provides 19.2 volts and 4.62 amps. The x735 board will STOP supplying enough power at 3 extra HDs, documentation says, ADD MORE POWER SUPPLIES AFTER 3 for the x735. We can put on 6 x828, x825, etc. boards with this supply and run a HUGE family cloud server, if thats what you want to do. The x735 is easier for the masses to understand and use, but I'd recommend this x710 for ANY serious POWER USER.....hehe
