In need of some technical help here! I am building a Raspberry Pi based tablet system and wanted a power button and battery so I could use it on the move. I bought a LipoPoly battery and a PowerBoost 500 Charger - Rechargeable 5V Lipo USB Boost @ 500mA+ I also bought one of these switches:
I followed the instructions on the Adafruit website around how to install the on/off switch: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-powerboost-500-plus-charger/on-slash-off-switch
I’m pretty sure the switch I bought is a ‘break-before-make’ switch? and so soldered in all pins to Vbat, En and Gnd. However whenever I flick the switch the power doesn’t turn off, it is always powered by the battery whichever position the switch is in.
Can someone help?
