Max Current Source

Post by rmdorsey2012 »

What is the max amount of current that the flora is capable of sourcing? Are there eagle files available for the flora?

From which pin(s)? How are you powering the Flora?
Eagle files are here: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Flora-Mainboard

I'm just following your neo pixel tutorial. Powering the pixels from the vbatt pin. 3 triple a batteries.

VBATT is wired directly to the battery, so it can source whatever the battery can source.

thanks for your quick and helpful replies. Please correct me if i'm wrong:

assuming i just use the battery pack you supplied me with (3 AAA batteries).

Source = 4.5 volts at 1200 mah

The max load would be ~21 neo pixels at full brightness (white light) for one hour?

How much power is the flora consuming?

The Flora will be drawing about 20mA or less. Thanks for posting your costume vids. Nice work! :D
