The PowerBoost Chargers are super versatile portable power sources. The one missing feature is the ability to pass USB data so you can exchange data with your computer while the LiPo battery is charging. This project turns your PowerBoost Charger into a LiPo Powered USB Data Cable.
The Booster Cable is a relatively easy project. Once you collect all the components and tools, it should only take an hour or two to assemble.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
