Does the feather turn on when the battery is connected or is there an on/off switch?
How long does the battery last?
Lada Ada and Team,
I just received my 3rd installment of Adabox, 003. I am a huge fan and have followed Lada Ada and Adafruit projects for years. But I have to say, Adabox is, for me at this point, a mixed bag. 001 came out with no instructions, nothing to build, no example code. 002 was a significant departure with better support, easier to find libraries within the build guide, and within a few hours my robot was dancing around the room. 003’s support is a fail. Examples have library requirements that are hard to find, the example code doesn’t work. And the instructions are incomplete. Your own forums are full of people that cannot get the esp8266 to work due to incomplete, misleading, or inaccurate information.
I love the concept of Adabox. But the support (ecosystem) is what is supposed to separate Adabox from just ordering a box of stuff. Right now, 003 is just a box of stuff. I hope that future Adabox offerings will have a little more thought behind them.
