Powerboost C battery low voltage cutoff

by jaymaster2000 on Thu Jan 10, 2019 10:17 pm

Hi Adafruit forum,

I've looked through the product information for the Powerboost C devices and can't seem to see if it mentions if it cuts off the battery at a specific threshold, the device has a warning led to indicate the battery is in low state, but can anyone confirm if it cuts the voltage if the voltage is too low?

The low voltage cutoff is handled by the circuit in the battery, not the charger.

Thanks for the clarification, so I can't use a battery without a BMS then.

It's not recommended.
