The WeMos D1 Mini TP5410 Lithium Battery Charging And Boost Shield is designed to charge a Lithium battery connected to its XH2.54 connector. Please note that most hobby Lithium batteries ship with a JST-PH connector, which isn’t the same as the one on this board! The design also includes a Micro-USB connector that can be used to charge the battery. Finally, the TP5410 includes a boost converter able to source 5VDC on the 5V pin of the WeMos D1 Mini Development Board or the Shield itself. The design doesn’t use any of the I/O pins of either board!
What makes the WeMos family of development boards for the ESP8266 great is the availability of stackable, plug-and-play shields such as this WeMos D1 Mini TP5410 Lithium Battery Charging And Boost Shield. Without much fuss, it’s very easy to connect, control, and monitor a wide variety of electronic components to the ESP8266. The WeMos family is a great solution for building projects quickly using the ESP8266 SoC.
Different users have different applications for the WeMos shields, thus we’ve found that the easiest way to please everyone is to ship the boards with the headers unsoldered. Each board in this kit includes a pair of Male, Female, Long Female pin headers for you to choose. Soldering is required for installing the header pins!
