Postby timi » Thu Jan 12, 2012 12:33 pm

hello

is it possible to use the LiPower Shield like this:
Code: Select all
solar source -> lipo charger <-> lipo battery (2000mAh)
                      |--------> LiPower -> 5V arduino mega

will this shield report the correct battery status in this configuration ?

Why use a separate charger when the lipower shield incorporates one.

Yes, that looks ok. If you are considering to buy something, by the LiPower Shield. If you already have the components, no bother buying something new.
