  • I'm using this part to power a simple circuit which requires 5V. When connected to a 3.7V power source, the circuit (including the boost converter) drains 320mA.

    Everything works well when powered by a single cell, 400mAh Li-Po battery (PRT-10718), but the battery does not last long enough for my application. When I connect this higher capacity battery (a brand-new Mudder 680mAh 20C Li-Po):

    The output of the boost is 0V. The Mudder battery works well if connected to a different boost converter, such as this one:

    what can be the cause of the problem? Any idea?

  • No replies yet? Building a multi-point network with this device should be of interest to many users. Any documentation available about this?

No public wish lists :(
