  • Great but : Please add a usb C port !!!!

  • I need the long pin version, why do you not carry them ? They are useful on an Arduino.

  • Take a big redboard, take a dremel (or if you do not own one go to a Fablab) and then cut the sizes you want !

  • Please indicate the max temp .

  • No, it's the standard. But in fact the industry standard on the other side: 4.2v fully charged is to high ! It reduces the life span of the battery of 50%, 300 cycles instead of 600. To gain only 5% of charge. So,we can blame the average consumer, who is not wondering what is inside his pocket and who buys crap. Thanks to all the makers who are trying to get rid of the industry limitations ! Source : http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries


  • https://www.adafruit.com/products/2465 sparkfun fork the product above

  • I NEED a version of that that can handle Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). Like this one but with your great Open-source policy, I won’t buy it if it’s not clearly and proudly open source. https://www.adafruit.com/products/2465 For a more in depth explanation click on the link .

  • I NEED a version of that that can work as an Uniturepted power supply (UPS) like this one but with your great opensource policy, I won't buy it if it's not clearly and proudly open source. https://www.adafruit.com/products/2465 more in depht explanation => it need to be like that: Since the built-in battery charger has load-sharing, it will automatically switch over to the USB power when available, instead of continuously charging/draining the battery. This is more efficient, and lets you charge-and-boost at the same time without any interruption on the output so its fine for use as a "UPS" (un-interruptable power supply).

  • This responds partialy to the main question : Why ? Why is this board with the chip on it not being created ?
