How to use OLIMEXINO-328 and lipo ?
thanks for answer


Hey Guschti,

Just load your favorite Arduino program in the OLIMEXINO-328, switch the jumper to 3.3V, then plug the battery. If it has a nice connector like the battery we sell (https://www.olimex.com/Products/Power/BATTERY-LIPO1400mAh/)it will fit into the battery connector. The board will power-up and the program stored will execute.

If you decide to plug the board to additional external power supply via the power jack while the battery is still plugged it will get charged.   

Best regards,

I also have this nice little board, but I think I fried it.  Is it possible to damage the circuitry by switching between 3.3V and 5V while it is powered on? I tried this both with 4.2 V LiPo and USB plugged in.
Why not put a 5V booster on board so the 5V logic would work with the 3.7 or 4.2 V LiPo battery?
Thanks for your great work.
