Setup of the UPS

Connect the USB power bank to the USB power supply unit (which should be able to provide at least 2.000 mA of current), and connect the Raspberry Pi to the USB power bank. Further connect the Raspberry Pi to your LAN switch (or router) by cable, if this isn't already the case anyway. Note that the connected LAN device must be powered from the same power source as the USB power bank. The Raspberry Pi can now detect a power outage by noting that the wired LAN connection is going down.
