Hi, I know this is a 12V device, but what are the maximum and minimum voltages the device will operate with.
Could I use a 4S lithium polymer battery (min 12V max 16.8V) to drive the UP CORE PLUS directly?
any info available??
I would NOT use a 4S Li-Ion battery. The upper voltage will likely be significantly outside the board tolerances.
A 3S Li-Ion seems to work. This swings between 9.9V and 12.6V. The upper voltage is only 5% over and this should be well within normal design tolerances. The board seems to also tolerate the lower voltage. I'm running an UP Core Plus off a 3S and so far have not had any problems.
