Re: Strange Power Behaviour

Finally found and fixed the problem. The solder joint between the pcb and the pi was broken and let go through less than 1V. Soldered another GND-GPIO to the GND test pad. Now everything works as intended.
Thanks a lot for your help!

Re: Strange Power Behaviour

But as I put everything together, the Pi starts to get a strange behaviour: sometimes it just won't turn on. When I slightly press on the faceplate, it suddenl...

Choosing the right battery

Hi guys, I already searched the forums for the topic and founds some posts, but none of them really made me happy. Here's the problem: I'm from Germany. The recommended LiPo from Adafruit is, thus, not really an option, as the shipping costs would be way to high. On my journey to find an alternative...
