The Camble PCB for the Powerboost should work since it has the enable pin but my board does not have the LBO pin which I think his board needs so might have to go with the bangood one then (not sure it's available anymore).

Yeah...
apparently its not available anymore....

i have both here....
I was hoping it would have been suitable with the power boost one, as that has been sitting here for nearly a year


worst case scenario...
i'm just gonna try to knock up my own (banggood)
the othermods site has a complete guide on how his safe shutdown and low battery is wired (IRF7319 & LM393)
(it might just need some slight adjusting for this)

The MintyPiBattery scripts have a folder with the icons as .png file you can edit WHILE it is not running so edit them as root or before you install the lines in the rc.local file.

Thanks
I'll give that a try....

Hi Helder. First of all Great Work!!. Second, if I want to use 18650 batteries can I connect more than 1? wont be problems on the charge ratings?. Also can I use a portable power bank in the usb input without a battery connected? will it work with a pi 3b+ with mouse, keyboard and LEDs?

most power banks use 18650 batteries in parallel with no balancing. You will be fine as long as the voltage of the batteries are the same when you connect them so that they don't rapidly discharge into each other in an attempt to balance. The charge IC doesn't see how many cells there are... only the overall voltage so it doesn't care.

My wii U and many other projects have been running of parallel 18650s with no issues. (btw many lipos are made will multiple cells in parallel... this is no different)

This looks awesome!
Can the controls for volume, wifi, etc be mapped to buttons on a teensy gamepad?
Thanks.

No not at this time. Bluup was working on a USB controller version but that is on the back burner with as other things have preference at this point in time.

Is it possible to connect a Type C and a wireless charging receiver to the single input along the top left of the board?

Didn't you ask this in Discord? Were you hoping the answer to be different here? You can attach a usb-c to the power input pads no problem.

The wireless charger doesn't output 5v as far as I'm aware or enough amperage to power the board. You could solder it to the battery though and it should charge the battery that way.

will this take the place of my Camble safe shut down (Powerbooast Edition). Also, I'm trying to use this with a V3 Tinker Boy board any thing special when wiring it up

This is a power board with battery monitoring so not sure how you're looking to replace the Shutdown board when that board didn't replace the PowerBoost which is what my board replaces. The tinkerboy v3 board uses USB for controls I think but if you use the DPI screen board the battery monitoring can't be used since those pins are used for the screen.

Don't ask me for help with using his products in tandem with mine as I have not used them but others here have and might be able to help better than I can. Also have a look on the GBZ Support subforum for alot of posts about this combination of parts.
