This small, palm-sized battery power meter has a small display that shows off how much juice is left in your single Lithium Ion/Polymer rechargeable battery. The color display has four levels of power indication once battery capacity becomes 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%. When power is below 25%, only the red battery frame lights up.
The design is pretty basic, it’s just doing basic voltage comparisons, and of course, it will drain any battery it is connected to – but for beginners, this is a pretty easy way to check single 3.7V/4.2V Lithium Ion or Lipoly batteries.
Comes with two bare wire ends, connect black wire to ground, red wire to positive – check your battery for the polarity because batteries not from Adafruit may have a different connector setup.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
