Problem with Espruino Pico with LiPo battery

Posted on
  • I'm having a really hard time finding one connector as shown in the page, the JST S2B-PH-SM4-TB.
    So I tried using a cut-off JST cable and only solder on those 2 little strips marked as - and +, but even after setting "Save on Send" to yes on the IDE options, the board is not turning on when I attach a 3.7v LiPo battery.

    What I could have done wrong?

  • Although I'm not an expert here;

    Are you seeking the male plug with female sockets or the female receptacle with male pins? (female receptacle) This may be of some help part
    What country/continent are you having difficulty in locating a suitable source? The battery page link had several sources.

    So others may assist here, we wont ass-u-me and it isn't quite clear:

    Q: Was the flying pigtail soldered to the board, or the battery directly?
    Q: What color wire was soldered to the + strip?
    Q: Was the battery fully charged before surgery?

    I'm sure this detail was reviewed

    In order to connect to a battery, you can use either the pins marked Bat and GND (on opposite sides of the board, nearest the USB connector)
