I'm fairly new to all of this, so apologies if this question is very noob...

I've got a prototype that I'm building on a redboard artemis nano, and I want to be able to read the lipo battery level and transmit over bluetooth.

However, I'm concerned that if I use the lipo fuel gauge here:
That I will lose the benefit of the onboard charging capability from the Nano.

Does anyone have experience using these two products together? And if my LiPo is plugged into that board, and I use I2C to read the level, will it still charge properly when the USB is plugged in?

The Fuel Gauge won't affect the ability of the Artemis Nano to charge the battery, just make sure to connect it between the battery and the Nano. :-)
