  • Is it fixed now? the schematic still shows that both terminals of the battery get shorted to ground when the circuit is turned off. I just ordered one of these prior to reading the comments. Shorting a Lipo and having it pop on a WEARABLE piece of technology is not something that should be an oops moment. This can do some serious damage to someone if this product matches the schematic and is left up for sale.

    Edit (5.13.2015): Contacted Sparkfun about the issue, this is their response.

    "All boards that are going out are being fixed in house. We are cutting the appropriate trace before they are being shipped to customers. WE are currently working on a board revision that will not require that modification."

No public wish lists :(
