Solder Battery directly to Feather Board (Bypass/remove bat

by jwdNYC on Wed Jan 26, 2022 3:28 am

My goal is to build a compact wearable.

The problem is that the battery connector is sharp, protrudes, and forces wires out at a right angle.

My ideal result would be to completely remove the battery connector, unsolder it or cut it off, and solder the Lipo battery directly to the Bat and ground pins.

Would this work? and if not, is there an alternative?

That will work. Just double-check the polarity before connecting things.
