Controller board that also charges LIpo

by masoncalhoun on Mon Oct 16, 2017 11:18 pm

Hi! I am working on some wearable projects that use neopixel rings, the trinket or gemma board, and a lipo battery. Is it possible to use the micro usb connector on the board to charge the lipo battery? Or do any of your boards have this capability? I have some friends that want me to make them my wearable pieces, but it requires extra components (battery charger) and costs to recharge the battery. It would be great if there was a way to charge the battery using the micro usb connector on the board. Is there a way to "hack" this to make it work. If so, how? If this is not possible, is this something you might consider creating on future editions of the trinket? I love how small it is. Anyway, thanks and hope to hear back. :)
Your friendly maker,
Mason

The Feather boards have built in battery charging.
