LiFePO4wered/Pi • Hackaday.io

Definitely important to my project, where I want to power a RPi 3 by Li-polymer, but the adafruit boost converter I grabbed is rated for 1A@5V, but can handle 2A.

What I love about the adafruit boost board is it has a 3/5V pin! This is [supposed] to use the 5V from USB when plugged in/charging, but 3.7V direct from battery when not.

Hopefully the 3.7V from battery will be enough, and the battery will provide the current needed.

I mean… It should right? If the battery can provide a lower voltage and be boosted to higher voltage with “enough” current, the current straight from the battery should be higher… Will have to check the datasheet :P
