Title: Power USB when LiPo battery is in use
Post by: estw on January 16, 2014, 11:25:01 pm
Hello *,

I am interested in using the NANO board with battery power and the USB host connector with USB periphials. However, the NANO board does not power the USB port when running on battery.

Would there be an option to provide USB port power from an external step up convertor that converts the battery voltage to +5V for the USB port, or will the USB port disabled anyway by the controller when running on batteries?

Thanks,

Holger
