Supply power to Powerboost 1000 Basic with a 5v mains supply

by GreenAlex on Mon Dec 04, 2017 5:26 pm

Hi !
As explained on the title, is it possible to supply power to the Power boost 1000 basic with a mains supply ?
I’m building a portable device powered by a Li-ion battery (Panasonic 18650, 3400mah, with a TP4056 charger). Everything works great, but I’d like also to supply it by a mains supply when I’m at home. I need about 5v and 3,5a (for a Raspberry and other stuff), and plan to take a 5v 4a micro usb mains supply to do this.
Is it ok to wire it to the Powerboost power input, or do I miss something ? I didn’t find anything on this subject...
Thanks !

You can supply 5v power via the USB micro jack or the USP pin: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pow ... power-pins

Thank you for your answer, but I'm asking about the PowerBoost 1000 Basic, not the "C" one which is made to work on a mains supply because it's a also a battery charger.

You can connect 5v to the BAT pin: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pow ... power-pins
But not while you have a battery connected.

For what you want to do, you need the 1000 C.
