Sounds like the gharge pump is drawing too much current for the arduino (or pc if usb powered) to handle. You probably need a seperate power supply for the charge pump.

Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   smiley-cool

That's still good advice..... Nobody can help if they don't know what you've done. Also post your code.... Edit: Assuming there is code- were you just using the Arduino 5v as your "battery"?

Have you looked for answers in the Learning, Reference, Products and Playground tabs on http://arduino.cc/en/ ?
Look here http://electronicsclub.info/ for basic electronics
