I’m new to the forum so nice to meet y’all. I have an adafruit 500c powerboost since february and I absolutely loved it! I think there is no better option for portable projects when you want to have the option of charging them.
So yesterday it stopped working…and I’m not sure why. I was trying to fit a sliding switch between the BAT/EN/GND pins. It might have to do with the fact that it’s a 3 state switch (rather than 2 state) and it shorted some pins it shouldn’t? I may have heard a “POUF” sound go off but it may be my imagination. Could it be a capacitor that blew up? Can I find it? Is there some common component that blows up on the powerboost? Any help to revive my beloved powerboost would be much appreciated!!
PS: I have already ordered 2 more to come but I still need to fix this one!
EDIT: Oh some important detail I left out. When I connect the LiPo battery now I the LEDS (PWR - LOW) light for a millisecond and then go off. It cannot be the battery’s fault because I checked with other batteries and it does the same.
