I have an Adafruit Powerboost 1000, and a 3.7v 2000mah 7.4wh lipo
When I have the battery plugged into the power boost, nothing happens, no power, no leds.
I know the battery has a charge because unplugging it and reading it with a multimeter shows 3.8v
Strangely enough, if I plug the battery into the power boost and try to read the voltage from the back of the port the power boost is connected to, there is no power, even though the place I am reading the power from should be directly connected to the battery terminals.
When the power boost is plugged into USB, the Chrg and PWR LEDs turn on, and it supplies around 5v power to the output. The low led does not turn on.
Reading the same back of the port that previously mysteriously had no power now have about 4v on them, and I know that the battery is properly connected to that port because if I now disconnect the battery the CHRG led turns off, and the PWR led stays lit.
I have tried to charge the battery with the power boost but the voltage of the battery does not go up.
Could it be that I don't have the right battery? or that I have a broken Powerboost?
