Add an RTC module

Fri Sep 21, 2018 4:52 am

Hi,
I would buy an RTC module like ds1307 to add to my RPI 3 B+ and I'm wondering if there is one that can be plugged directly on the gpio connector and where to buy it.
Could you help me please?
Thanks and regards

Hi gordon77,
thanks for your reply.
This model has no battery and I don't know if the capacitor is capable enough to keep time for a long time as I need.
Do you know if I can find a model that has battery?
Thank you again and regards

There are others:

etc, etc
Just search for 'raspberry pi rtc' if you need more alternatives.
