Power Boost 1000c is very hot while charging

by igorm on Thu Jun 11, 2020 1:05 pm

Just got a new Power Boost 1000c and connected to LiPo 3800mAh. The left side of the micro USB connected (looking from the top while the USB is on the north of the board) is getting scorching hot while charging the battery. There is no load on the board at all - just the battery.

Is it normal or it'll going to burn out?

That's normal. It's not at all unusual for it to get too hot to touch. This and other things are covered in the tutorial guide https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-powerboost-1000c-load-share-usb-charge-boost
