Random Feedback on LiIon/LiPoly Backpack

by pdp8 on Tue Jul 21, 2020 9:35 pm

I added a LiIon/LiPoly Backpack to my ItsyBitsy nRF52840 and I ran into a few things:
  • The backpack covers the reset (and "user") button on the ItsyBitsy nRF52840, proably there isn't really anything to be done about this (guessing you put the buttons where you did for a reason - there is a price for packing so much in 1 square inch!), but would be worth noting in the description for the LiIon/LiPoly Backpack and / or ItsyBitsy nRF52840
  • Mine came with 15mm header, which isn't really long enough, https://www.adafruit.com/product/400 would be better
  • Would be worth mentioning on the Backpack's product description that you might want / need kapton tape (and / or include kapton tape as an "Also include" item on the product page)
  • Would be great to include a picture of the Backpack on an Itsy Bitsy from the side you one can get an idea of the spacing

Random product idea: LiIon/LiPoly Backpack with a STEMA connector (would need to be bigger of course to reach the I2C pins)

Not really looking for help at this point, I figured out what I need, but wasn't quite my normal awesome Adafruit experience and I don't see any other option for proving this sort of feedback.

Thanks

Scale is hard, but I think so, yes.
