Flora v3 with 2 pin JST battery holder

by NChantelle on Fri Apr 12, 2019 12:01 am

This might be a stupid question, but I purchased this https://www.adafruit.com/product/727 2pin JST battery holder to power the adafruit flora v3 and a led strip. I haven't attached the led strip yet, but when I plug the battery holder (with batteries) into the flora, it doesn't light up at all (battery pack is turned to on). It lights up just fine when connected to the computer. Did I make a mistake? Is this product insufficient to power even the flora by itself? I'm confused.

Make sure the Flora's power switch is in the ON position. It controls battery power to the board, and is easy to forget.
