Lithium Ion Battery with Mkr 1500

Will the Polymer Lithium Ion Battery (LiPo) 3.7V 1100mAh with standard 2-pin JST-PH connector plug straight into the Arduino MKR NB1500?

Hi Paul,

Our 1100mAh LiPo battery should be a good match for the Arduino MKR NB1500. The NB1500 has a quite basic charging profile that is explained on the product page, it assumes any battery connected to it can be safely charged at a 350mA rate, so batteries less than 750mAh in capacity aren’t supported.
The charger will also shut down automatically after 1400mAh of charging has been supplied so it is wasteful to put too large of battery on it.
