Redo the control in Emulationstation for controls to work in game. There will be a new update in a few days so have a little more patience till then, thanks.

The linked battery seems to be a 2P pack which is a two cell in parallel pack so it's the same as one huge battery, thus helder's Retro PSU will work just the same way.

Yes as long as the battery is some kind of Lithium battery like Lithium Polymer (LiPo) or Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and has a nominal voltage of 3.7v-3.8v it'll work but NOT the LiFePO since they have a lower capacity voltage and will be damaged. Be aware it will take some time to charge that huge battery though with a 1A charge my board produces.

Hello Helder,

Does you PSU work together the mintypi battery monitor script? I´ve seen, that it uses simular connection (SDA/SLC)

The connection that you’re talking about is the i2C protocole and SDA is the data line, SCL the clock line.
This is a universal bus to make IC chips to communicate one with another.
The script used with the MintyPi will work but you may need to tweak it, i don’t know if it’s the same physical address that is used.
Go to Helder’s github, there is a bunch of scripts designed solely for that PSU, you won’t have to tinker :D
