TailBat is an external battery accessory designed for ATOM. It can be inserted into the tail of ATOM to provide power, making it convenient for users in mobile scenarios. The front of TailBat features a power switch button. It contains a 190mAh battery controlled by the power management chip IP5303. When the power is turned on, a red indicator light illuminates.
The usage method is similar to that of the M5Stack Core: a single click to turn on the power and a double click to turn off the power. During charging, the indicator light flashes, and once fully charged, the indicator light remains on.
TailBat is designed with a pass-through interface, which means it doesn't interfere with the original wiring and interface functionality since it adds a battery. The built-in battery can only be charged through the Type-C interface and cannot be charged through the GROVE interface.

ATOM TailBat - Battery Accessory for ATOM
Nice and compact battery package that is great for small devices or sensors using the M5Stack ATOM processor. Only issue is if the M5Stack ATOM is the only device connected to it or the processor and one sensor, not enough power is drawn to keep the battery awake. Maybe a future version will allow the ATOM to communicate with the TailBat to keep it awake. But unfortunately, at this time, in my case at least they will not perform the function of a backup as they will go to sleep and power down do to insufficient power draw.
The easiest way to power any Atom project. It’s great for testing portable projects and stylish enough for any deployed project that needs battery power.
Very handy bit of kit for remote projects or as a backup for power outage.
