Feather 32u4 charging LED not working

by diggernet on Sun Jul 03, 2022 7:58 pm

I have a new Feather 32u4 (2771) and LiPoly battery (3898). The battery works fine, and the Feather charges it as expected. But the charging LED never turns on. Is there any way the program could be impacting this, or is the LED just dead?

As an aside, is there any way for a program to read the state of the charging LED?

Thanks.

No, it's directly connected to the charger status output. And that's all the charger status is connected to. There's no interaction with the MCU at all. It sounds like a dead LED. As you say, it won't affect the operation of the charger.

Ok, figured that was the case. Now, what can be done about this defective board?

Please email support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread, your order number, and request the replacement of one Feather 32u4 Basic Proto.
