The PowerCell board is a single cell LiPo boost converter (to 3.3V and 5V) and micro-USB charger in one. The board comes with a JST connector for a single cell LiPo battery, a micro-USB connector for the 5V charge input, and selectable 3.3V and 5V output pins (labeled 'out'). There are also two charge pins broken out (labeled 'charge'), so you can use another 5V power source to charge the batteries, if you don't have a micro-USB cable.
We've also broken out the power-save and enable pins, so that you can have full control of the switching regulator. Keep in mind, if you keep your battery connected to the Powercell, it is recommended that you disable the switching regulator (pull EN low) in order to prevent the battery from discharging and reaching the under voltage cutoff on the battery itself. There is also an under-voltage lockout on the Powercell board which is tied to a solder jumper so that you can disable it if you like.
The micro-USB charger uses theMCP73831 and allows you to charge 3.7V LiPo cells at a rate of 100mA max. If you want to charge at a faster rate, you will need to connect a separate power supply to the pins labeled '5V' and 'GND' under the label 'charge'.
The boost converter is based on the TPS61200 from TI and has solder jumper selectable 5V and 3.3V output, and an under voltage protection of 2.6V (which can be disabled via solder jumper on the back of the PCB).
This board does not have reverse polarity protection, so please be sure to recognize the polarity of your connections!

LiPo batteries are a great way to power your projects. They\'re small, lightweight, and pack a pretty good punch for their size. Unfortunately, even the best batteries eventually run low on power and when they do it\'s often unexpected (and at the worst time). Don\'t be caught by surprise next time your board suddenly powers-down! The LiPo Fuel Gauge...
Have you ever wanted to start your widget the same way you start your car? These key switches are the key to making that happen. This simple ON-OFF switch can be used to power up your project with the turn of a key. Two large (2mm x 4.5mm) solder lugs on the back make connecting wires easy.
This simple on-off switch is rated for 20A at 12V but who cares about all that, it looks way awesome. These toggle switches come with those missile switch covers that make your project look like something out of a spy movie. They\'re also a great safety feature to ensure that you don\'t accidentally fire the missiles (or whatever it is your switch does)....
This is a breakout board for the Bosch BMP180 high-precision, low-power digital barometer. The BMP180 offers a pressure measuring range of 300 to 1100 hPa with an accuracy down to 0.02 hPa in advanced resolution mode. it\'s based on piezo-resistive technology for high accuracy, ruggedness and long term stability. These come factory-calibrated, with the...
This is a Arduino compatible PS2 Joystick Module for Robot Projects. Simply connect to two analog inputs, the robot is at your commands with X,Y control. It also has a switch that is connected to a digital pin. This joystick module can be easily connect to Arduino by normal IO Expansion Shield with supplied cables.No soldering required, Reusable...
If you\'ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun bi-directional logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V AND steps up 3.3V to 5V at the same time. This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. What really separates this Logic level...
Die Transponderkarte EM 4100 ist nur für den reinen Lesebetrieb geeignet (read only) und verfügt über eine werksseitige 8 Byte Seriennummer (einmalige UID). Daher ist das Einsatzgebiet recht begrenzt und beschrönkt sich meist auf die Bereiche der Zutrit\'skontrolle, Zeiterfassung und verschiedene industrielle Anwendungen.
it\'s blue! it\'s thin! it\'s the Arduino Pro Mini! SparkFun\'s minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader. Arduino Pro Mini does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need. We recommend first time Arduino users start with the Uno R3. it\'s a...
