Adafruit FONA 800 + battery

Wed Mar 28, 2018 5:08 pm


I had bought a adafruit FONA 800H and a 2300mah battery and after charging it via micro usb, the fona power off. after unplugging the lipoly battery, I saw smoke and immediately disconnected the battery. however, I can still charge the fona perfectly fine.

if I have the lipoly battery connected and the micro usb charging at the same time, will I be able to make calls and such?

This shield is for Arduino's, not sure why you think its suitable for a PI.
