MagTag battery space?

by hopkapi on Sun Jan 23, 2022 11:24 pm

Was thinking about getting a MagTag and ordering a lipoly to go on the back, though as I'm in the UK the suggested ones in the Adafruit shop aren't available, so I was wondering what dimensions a battery would need to fit into in order to fit that space in order to still sit flat/be magnet-mountable with the right feet?

Thanks

25mm x 40mm is about as big as I'd go. It'll fit without touching any of the surrounding components.

That would depend on how much space you have behind the MagTag. If you're using the screw-in magnetic feet you have a touch shy of 18mm of space.

If it's without feet? Would just want it to sit flat etc.
