LiPo SHIM for Pico with LiPo Battery without Protection

The description of the LiPo SHIM for Pico (PIM557) implies it can be used with unprotected LiPo batteries, for example, 18650 Lithium Cell (BAT0010). Is this correct?


Just tagging along to see the replay as I just bought one. It does state on the product page, protection against overdischarge and overcurrent so I’m thinking it is OK to use unprotected batteries?

Mine has just arrived. It was protection against overcharging I was concerned about.


The product page has a link to the XB6096I2S datasheet, which includes overcharge protection in its list of features, so I’d presume so?

Given the potential consequences it might be worth emailing them anyway, just to be sure.
