Having plugged the LiPo into the Powerboost, and then a USB cable into a RPi Zero W I noticed that the Powerboost got incredibly hot, far too much to hold which makes it tricky when trying to remove the LiPo itself. A blue LED stays lit during use which appears to be normal and I have not wired anything to the Powerboost separately.
I have seen that Adafruit have an FAQ section and it states it can get hot during charge, but this was using it to power another device only.
Should the Powerboost be getting that hot so quickly? I’m afraid to use it in my projects as I think it will cause more problems than it solves with the heat it produces, and possible damage other components.
