Re: LCD blinking

Are you able with a multimeter to measure the battery voltage? Need to see if the battery is healthy! Also, could you show a picture of how you have hooked it up?

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword (+ Lite), Circuit Shield + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

What size / type connector is used for the Circuit Shield battery? (so I can search up the connectors on aliexpress) The battery I ordered was bare wire termination so I'll need to crimp on the connector. I tried looking at the FAQ and setup guide but the specific connector type/size doesn't seem t...

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword (+ Lite), Circuit Shield + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

Re: Circuit Shield dead board due to high input current

Hi, Ok cool thanks, so based on that it seems like the issue is the charge IC (which also handles passing on the power to the regulators etc to power the device) as it isn't passing the power on, and not seeming to pass charge power too (makes sense as it's not charging).
