Have questions about a SparkFun product or board? This is the place to be.

I am using a Photon Battery Shield and have an issue I'd appreciate some help with.

Should the shield work with NO changes to the existing code, just placed in the breadboard inbetween the Photon and the breadboard?

I appreciate none of the measurement elements will work.

I have an Environmental monitor which works when the Photon is plugged directly into the board but stops working when the Photon is plugged in via the shield in the same breadboard circuit.

The red light comes on and it's the same result with or without the battery plugged in.

Not sure if I have a faulty shield
