Adafruit CLUE

My new CLUE turns on when connected to USB. But will not turn when a fully charged lipo jst2 battery is plugged into it. Thank you for your help.

Can you post a clear photo of the back of the CLUE, of the area around the battery connector. Also a photo of the battery's JST connector. It might be that the battery is wired with the opposite polarity. Did you get the battery from Adafruit? It's quite common to see LiPo's wired in either polarity, though Adafruit has standardized on one arrangement.

Thank you Dave I will reverse the polarity and see what happens. No, I did not get the Lipo from Adafruit.

I suggest you verify it by comparing to photos of lipos on the adafruit shop.
