Product Description

The LiPo Battery Breadboard Supply with Charging is a simple LiPo battery breakout that fits snuggly on a standard sized breadboard providing power to rails on both sides of the board. The breakout also includes a 3.3V, 300mA regulator in case the user would like to add a regulated supply to their design. Additionally, the breakout includes a micro USB connector and battery charger (MCP73831T) so that the user can power from a standard USB port and charge their LiPo battery at the same time. Furthermore, the breakout includes a number of indicator LEDs so the user can monitor the status of the LiPo battery and the regulated supply. The user can also turn the supply off by disconnecting the supply from the power rails and turning off the regulator without having to remove the breakout board from the breadboard or disconnecting the LiPo battery.

Please visit the product's Instructables page for a detailed description of the design.

LiPo Charger

$7.95

Charge your LiPo batteries with the LiPo battery charger. I even broke out the pins of the LiPo charger so you can have better access to the STATUS and PROG pins. The LiPo charger comes built with 100mA charge current. Please feel free to modify the charge current by placing a resistor from PROG to GND.
