An issue with running feather off of battery and not chargin

by jaipurdiary on Sun Jul 12, 2020 1:19 pm

I have a Feather HUZZAH w/ ESP8266 WiFi that I received last weekend and a 3.7 v battery I received today. The project that I am making will require the feather to run off of the battery. I noticed once I plugged in the battery and then the feather to USB the yellow charging light did not come on. I tried the feather with only the battery and got no LED activity at all. I then took some measurements of the board and battery with my multimeter. They are as follows:

Battery only 3.92v

Battery only hooked up to feather

Battery pin 3.88v

3v pin .04v

USB pin .03v

Battery and USB power hooked up to feather

3v pin 3.29v

USB pin 4.97v

I am not sure what the issue may be as to why the feather is not charging the battery or running off of it. For all, I know it could be me. ;-) If you can advise me on this that would be great.

Thanks
