Lipo battery extension board 2



  • Hello

    I am trying to use a Lipo battery with the lopy and the expansion board. I have measured the battery and it is about 3,4V. It works when i connect it directly to VIN and GND, but not with the connector on the exp. board.

    Is the battery not supposed to work like this? Or is the connector only for charging the battery?

    Hi @tholden, no problem! :)

    We had a similar issue when we ordered in a number of JST connectors from ebay as well!



  • Thanks. That was the issue. The chinese battery manufacturer have connected the wires wrong in the connector.

    Hi @tholden,

    Could you post a picture of how you have connected the battery via the connector?

    It might be that the wiring is backwards!

    Thanks!
