Particle Power Shield

The Power Shield is the best way to provide power to your mobile Particle projects. Based around the MCP73871 battery management controller, this shield allows you to simultaneously power a Photon and charge a connected Li-Ion or Li-Po battery. You'll also be able to monitor battery levels using the Photon itself, which makes the Power Shield the best way to untether your wireless project.

PAR-POW-000

Besides the on-board USB port, you can also use an external DC power supply or solar-cell to charge the battery. This shield ships with a 3.7V Li-Po battery and headers. Designed for use with the Photon, backwards compatible with the Core.
