The SparkFun Photon Battery Shield provides you with an easy way to power your Photon module with a Lithium Polymer LiPo battery.

Not only can the Battery Shield power your Photon, but you will also be able to charge a LiPo battery through it. The board comes with a JST connector for your single cell LiPo battery and utilizes the Photon's on board micro USB connector for the charge input.

This battery shield uses a MCP73831 for LiPo charging and a MAX1704X for fuel gauging. This is a very simple shield for your Photon to provide it basic and on the go power wherever and whenever you might need it! The SparkFun Photon Battery Shield comes with the headers already soldered on, so you can plug and play! The Particle Photon is a tiny WiFi development kit for creating connected projects and products.

Sporting a 120MHz ARM Cortex M3 and built in WiFi, the Photon is not only powerful, but easy to use. The small form factor is ideal for IoT projects with cloud connectivity.

Note: Not only can this shield operate with the Photon, but it can also be used with the Particle Core!
