Topic: 9v socket, LiPo battery
It's me again,
I've been doing some micro-controller development in the past. I usually have an LDO or 7805 in-line on input from my battery source. In this case, I have a high capacity Lithium Polymer battery that would easily fit inside the Chumby. It lasts a long time (runs a remote aircraft for 40 minutes). Would it be safe for me to solder a 9v connector and experiment -- it is 7.2 volts. Thanks!
Alternatively, I may try to develop a charging circuit to go between the battery or add a vreg and fuse for safety. I'll be interested to hear some thoughts. Hope everyone is having fun.
