  • Is is possible to take videos with this module?

  • I use Windows 7, 8 and 10, but mostly Windows 10. I feel like it’s the most user-friendly option, it’s very open, and my files are easy to get too. I could use Linux because I’m a techy kind of person, but I used Windows in my childhood. I grew up with Windows XP.

    The reason I don’t like Mac is because I don’t like Apple in general. I feel like they are just such a closed system and force you into upgrading things. I bought one of their devices 6 years back (Ipod Touch 4th Gen) and it just becomes more obsolete every day. The fact that I can’t upgrade to IOS 7 let alone 9 makes me angry. Oh and don’t get me started on tech support…

    No, Windows is the better option by far!

  • Could the board be powered by a lithium polymer battery by any chance? The datasheet for the chip itself says the max voltage is 5.5 volts for digital and analog supply, however the max for interface supply indicates 3.6 volts. That max is 0.1 volts under what a li-po battery provides. So will it fry the ic?

  • I agree, I would rather support Arduino LLC. Sparkfun pays royalties, don’t they?

  • Very useful. I’m wondering something though, how do you calculate voltage measured from ADC reading? I’ve been trying to manipulate the formula but can’t figure it out. Thanks.

    Edit: I got it, for anyone wondering the formula to find voltage measured is Voltage Measured = ADC Reading x System Voltage / Resolution of the ADC

  • Would there be any chance of you guys getting a usb 3.0 version of this?

  • How about some thing that turns the light on in the day and off at night? Or even dims the lights different times.

  • I’m probably a bit late, but yes, that charger will work. It charges the battery at 500mA, so for this battery it would be charged in 2 hours.

    To answer you second question, yes, that would probably be ok. As far as I can tell, 2C continuous discharge (or 2 times Capacity) just means that it can discharge at 2 x (1000mA). This means you can draw 2000mA of current from it, if you had the right connectors (the connector and wire is only rated to 1A). I don’t know if I’m getting that right though.

  • Well, you could wire them in series to get about 7.4v at 1000mAH (I think). That wouldn’t be enough voltage though. Now, if you wired 3 in series you would get 11.1v at 1000mAH. Just don’t charge them in series.

  • Can this step a voltage up to 5v from 3.7v?

No public wish lists :(
