  2. Hi TinkerBoy

    Unfortunately Gearbest have discounted the powerboast. Any other similar products you can recommended? Thanks in advance

    1. Here’s a link from AliExpress: http://s.aliexpress.com/F7Nfqyae

  3. Can you solder the battery to either the top or the bottom? Also are there any dangers to know about the battery

    1. Yes you can do that. For the battery, don’t ever short or connect the positive (red) and GND (black) wires.

  4. Hi guys, how will the battery charge? Only when its powered on and plugged into usb? Will it charge with the switch OFF and plugged into USB?

    Thanks, gr8 work

    1. You can charge the battery whether 5v output is on or off.
