5V Relay on pycom
@kebson What kind of relay is that? In any case, you need a switching transistor (like a simple N-Channel Mosfet [e.g. 2N7000]) and a flyback diode [e.g. 1N4148]) to switch the 5V the relay needs. There are some modules which have that integrated, but the circuitry is so bad designed that it still needs a 5V level to fully switch.

@kebson You will need to check the specs of the relay to see what voltage and current is required to actually hold the relay closed.
