So I have built numerous pwnagotchi at this point. All the same H/W.
- 16 gig SD card
- Waveshare 2.13 v2 rev 2.1
- Pisugar 1200mah battery pack
This issue is strange.
If I have the whole system together WITHOUT the PiSugar battery pack and just power the unit via the microUSB on the pi…everything is fine. As soon as I attach the PiSugar pack the waveshare goes black on boot and never works.
This is not a pwnagotchi software issue. Its not a RPi issue. It does not appear to be a waveshare issue…
I have charged the PiSugar pack fully. I have layed down Kapton tape in case something was shorting something out… no joy. I can’t seem to deduce why this system will not run off the PiSugar pack when so many others have had no issue.
I have another PiSugar pack coming in a day or so so I can see if there is something wrong with the battery…but im looking for any other clues yall might have to solve this.
Stuck a bit.
