Feather Sense, charging 2 lipos

by southernatheart on Thu Jan 27, 2022 1:02 pm

I got the feather sense, and the Lithium Ion Polymer Battery Ideal For Feathers - 3.7V 400mAh battery. I'd like slightly larger capacity, but I've looked thru all your battery selections, and none of them will suit do to size restrictions in my enclosure, but I do have room for 2 of these little 400mAh ones. I'm making a custom PCB, so I can have JST plugs for both. If I hook them up in parallel, will the feather sense's charging circuit charge them both? It should just think it has 1 battery that's 800mAh. I'm not real familiar with Lipos, but from your tutorial here: https://learn.adafruit.com/multi-cell-lipo-charging/simple-balance-charger it seems like it should be okay.
Thanks,
ck
