Powerboost 500c & 2500mah battery not working

by sawyersweetman on Sat Aug 24, 2019 4:28 pm

hello, im trying to use this powerboost 500c with a 2500mah battery.

when i plug the battery into it, NOTHING ( no lights )

when i plug in the mini USB, everything lights up and it works just fine.

its basically just not working with the battery, i have a volt meter and i did test the battery, its working fine.

any help is appreciated thanks

Have you tested the voltages on the Power Boost when the battery is plugged in? Can you post a picture of it connected to the battery?

no voltage on the 5v pin and when i test the voltage right from where the battery plugs into the female plug on the board, it doesnt seem to have proper voltage either.. 252.2 ??
