Looking for some battery help here. I bought 3 2000mAh LiPo 3.7V batteries to power my mega, motor shield (two small dc motors attahced (these require at least 5V to run)) and wifi shield. I realised now that probably isnt enough, but im having trouble working out what is. I connected up the 3 batteries in series, at full charge that gives aboout 11v (give or take), to the Vin/GND on the stacked microprocessor etc. unfortunately that does not power it, and im not sure why.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, if i havent givern enough detail just ask.
Thanks, Im fairly new to this, im more of a programmer, so if ive said anything dumb, feel free to correct me :)
