Powerboost 1000c Usb-C

Post by Matimonade » Mon Jan 21, 2019 6:38 pm

Hi, i'm completely new to all of this world and I want to build a GBA zero. Since i "hate" micro usb because it's flumsy and a bunch of other reasons. I wanted to know if its possible to power a powerboost 1000c using this usb-c breakout board from sparkfun.

https://www.sparkfun.com/products/15100

Basically i want to know if it is possible to power the 1000c using 5v 2a?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Actually I read on the internet and found out that the chip can handle imputs from 1.8v to 5.5v. Which makes it able to output 5.5v. It didn't find how may amps tho. If you had this question well I answered it myself! Rip the forum :lol:

Yes you can use it. The vbus on the usb-c goes to the 5v line of the microusb.
