Adafruit Ultimate GPS FeatherWing - battery not secure

by waltmck on Sat Mar 07, 2020 6:01 pm

I'm using this GPS featherwing and the battery is not securely held. I've lost several because I've dropped it and the battery has popped out. The one I'm using now will be put in a small Pelican case and will use MQTT to transmit GPS to a Raspberry Pi. This will be OK when in the case, but my next project is to try building a GPS based bike computer using this wing and a PyGamer. Here the wing will be placed vertical and will be subject to jolts and bouncing. Is there a way to better secure the battery?

You could stretch a stout rubber band around the stack. Some Kapton tape should work also.
