CapSense battery?

by janeable on Wed Jun 21, 2017 6:56 pm

I have been trying to make the "Capacitive Touch with Conductive Fabric & Flora" (https://learn.adafruit.com/capacitive-touch-with-conductive-fabric-and-flora/overview) project with my new Flora. It works perfectly while connected to the computer, but I can't get it to work with the 3xAAA battery pack. I got a simple circuit to light a single neoPixel with the battery, but none of the capSense functions work. Could it be a problem with the resistor? I tried a bunch of different resistors already.
There is a line in the code that lights up the red LED on the Flora. I noticed that it lights up dim with the battery pack. I wonder do I need to use a different battery? Thank you for your response.
