I'm prototyping a power meter for an unattended remote system. The power system in the device is 24VDC, and I've got some other 12VDC items in there, but I really don't want to put any more drain on the battery system. So I'm thinking of powering the ND+2 with a LiPo system. I've been looking at Adafruit's PowerBoost 500 shield as a pretty good plug and go solution, with the exception that if I'm not wrong the Vin pin requires a minimum of 7.5VDC, and the powerboost is providing only 5VDC. Can someone verify if I can power the ND+2 from Vin with as little as 5V?
I just remembered that I've experienced this before. 5V won't work, so I'm changing my question.
Has anyone else found a solution for powering from a rechargeable battery?
