Animated charge states!

So finally it is done, we now have charge light animation! At first I tried to use a transistor to get the charge status of the lights (after some advice from people on this forum :) ) But I just could not get it to work properly. Both leds from the powerboost would stay on when I had the transistor...

Re: Help using teensy to read led status of powerboost

I got so caught up in thinking about various voltages etc that I never thought of using a transistor. :lol:

That is a great idea! I will start investigating thanks!

Help using teensy to read led status of powerboost

So I am working on an Idea and I have gotten a little stuck need some help from the Gurus out here. I am currently using a teensy to drive a neopixel for my status light. I am currently using a modified version of @Camble's power monitor script to change the status of the pixel. When the Pi is on it...

Custom battery pack

So I was having some trouble with my batteries. I could not find anything that fit in the space I had left. So I bought 3 1200mah lipo cells (with integrated control circuit) and linked them in parallel. After some research, I realised that this does not work properly and the Powerboost does not cha...

Re: David's #1 Gameboy (pi3)

Yes I saw those. I wanted to do some white lights for charging. I must say it does not look as good as I thought

Sure here is the link:

https://www.adafruit.com/product/1938

But like I said previously there is a blue flash on startup so keep that in mind.

Re: David's #1 Gameboy (pi3)

... and want to use them in my GB Pi. I think I definitely will now if I go the teensy route. A note about these (I am using the 5mm through hole versions). There seems to be an initial full blue state when the Neopixel powers up. Even when the pixel is initialised via the teensy, there is a brief ...

Re: David's #1 Gameboy (pi3)

you had me at neopixel ;) How are you controlling it? (I saw a line relating to the teensy but how are you connecting events to the update of the pixel colour? ) First of all I am using the <Adafruit_NeoPixel.h> library to control the Neopixel. This outputs on pin 25 Then I am using a modified vers...

David's #1 Gameboy (pi3)

By this time, I was pretty sure I could fit a pi3 in there so I ordered one and got to work removing the tallest components, the usb ports and the network port. I only trimmed the Gpio pins as there was plenty of space to accommodate them, and the less you de-solder the less you are likely to damage...
