The LiPower board is based on the incredibly versatile Texas Instruments TPS61200 boost converter. The board is configured to be used with a Lithium-Ion or Lithium-Polymer battery, has solder jumper selectable 5V and 3.3V output (set to 5V by default), and an under-voltage protection of 2.6V. However, the board also can be used as a general-purpose buck and boost regulator with an input voltage as low as 0.3V (default UVLO is 2.6V). With such a low input voltage and quiescent current, the board also works well in energy-harvesting applications that use low input voltages.
Note: This board does not have reverse-polarity protection, so make sure to recognize the polarity before connecting your input source.
