Feather Huzzah Charging Battery

by TopHatRaver on Wed Aug 21, 2019 1:09 pm

Hello,
I have wired up a Huzzah to some LEDs with a power Switch as noted in these instructions https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-huzzah32-esp32-feather/pinouts#power-pins-2-4 but I have a couple of questions:

1) Is there a way of increasing the charge rate to greater than 100mA? I'm using a 2000mAh battery and it takes a long time to charge it.
2) The light always seems to stay on when charging. I expected it to turn off once the battery was full. Is that incorrect?

Appreciate your help!

You would have to change the charge rate resistor, which would require some SMT soldering.

It should. Do you have a lower capacity battery you could try to see if does the same thing there?
