Suggestion: Battery Monitor feed

by Technodad on Mon Feb 07, 2022 5:17 pm

If you are still accepting ideas for WipperSnapper components, can I suggest adding a feed for the battery monitor on boards that support it, e.g., the ESP32-S2 Feather? This would allow easy monitoring of battery-powered IoT devices, as well as the creation of triggers for when a battery needs recharging.

I see from the documentation that the battery monitor reports over I2C, so hopefully not too much of a stretch.

Sure! It's on the radar. We take component requests over on https://github.com/adafruit/WipperSnapp ... new/choose, for tracking purposes. Feel free to suggest it there.

We're going to add support for the LC709203F LiPoly / LiIon Fuel Gauge and Battery Monitor as well.
