Hello. If i supply my seeeduino stalker2 from the solar pin with 5v I only obtain 3.3v on the USB5V pin. If i supply from the usb adapter I obtain 5v. Is there a way to obtain always 5v on USB5V pin also if I am supply the system with the solar socket? Thanks

Can you provide links to whatever devices you are asking about?

As to your question if you can get 5V when feeding the solar socket, no. The datasheet for the charge IC (CN3083) is in Chinese but appears to have a limit of 6V in, and with your 1.7V dropout you cannot get 5V.

I have try to measure a voltage between a digital pin (es4) and GND after have done:
digitalWrite(4, HIGH);
In both cases (supply by usb or solar socket) I measure 3.3v. Is it possible they put on market something is only mechanical but non elettrically compatible with arduino?

Since this is a Seeedstudio product, have you tried posting a question in their forum?

Yes and they answered me stalker 2 only works at 3.3V. I am very disappointed because on their website they said "compatible with arduino" and not "only mechanically compatible withj arduino".
