Q:
I am trying to charge a 1200mah, 3.7 volt lipo battery with this kitronik device - it has been plugged in via my laptop for hours and the light is still red - how long should it take?
Asked by: Louise
A:
Hi Louise, Thank you for your question. So normally a USB should be able to provide around 500mA an hour so I would expect it to take 2-3 hours to charge to full. However, many laptops have their USB current output limited to protect the rest of the laptop so can be as low as 100mA an hour so obviously taking around 12 hours. This device can handle upto 500mA of power but the charging source it is connected to needs to be able to provide that amount as well. I would recommend you are probably better off using a phone charger as this should let you draw the full 500mA. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
could i use this in a solar panel/ phone charger circuit?
Asked by: em
A:

Hi Emily, This part isn’t designed to be used for solar charging, you would need to look at https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12885 which we don’t stock. Also we don’t advise creating a circuit to charge a mobile phone as if the circuit isn’t correctly wired it can damage the unit and/or phone.

Q:
1 Is the JST connector the correct gender for a device powered by a lipo cell which itself uses a JST - and do you sell a suitable cable to fix this. 2 Can this be used as a tiny UPS for a low power project ?
Asked by: Richard Williams
A:

Hi, the JST connector on this board is female so it's correct for a battery but not for most devices. We don't sell a male to male JST connector at the moment.

For the second question, the board itself will store little if any charge. It is designed for charging a LiPo cell.

If I've misunderstood your question please let me know.
