Smart USB Power with Thunderboard Sense

This was more of an observation than an issue but @siliconlabs suggested posting it here.


When running a Thunderboard Sense from a Primo Power Bank the battery box shutdown shortly after boot. We are guessing it was detecting a very low current draw. The same board worked fine from a mains USB or from a coin cell.

Re: Smart USB Power with Thunderboard Sense

Interesting observation!  Unfortunately that makes the battery box poorly suited to powering an unattended Thunderboard.


Thanks for posting,
