LilyPad Simple Power Hookup Guide
True to its name, the LilyPad Simple power is really simple! There's only a few features you need to be aware of.
Battery JST Connector
The Simple Power is designed to work with 3.7V lipo batteries. In order to connect the battery to the board, there should be a female JST connector on the battery.
This allows you to charge your battery via a computer USB port, using a micro-B USB cable.
These sew taps are the connection points from where the power to your circuit will flow. The positive terminal outputs 3.7V, and the negative terminal is the ground (GND) connection.
This switch enables and disables power to flow out of the LilyPad Simple board. When it is in the 'on' position, you can measure the battery voltage across the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals. When it is in the 'off' position, there is no measurable voltage output from the board.
These four holes spaced across the board are designed as additional anchoring sew taps. They are not conductive, and have no electrical functionality.
