Battery.ReadVoltage


#1

Does this method work for anyone? It seems to always return 3700 for me. Just wondering if there is any way to detect the battery state without a voltage divider/analog pin combo.


#2

Works fine here :slight_smile: used a voltage divider and analog pin though :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh, I was just using the static Battery.ReadVoltage without initializing it with an analog pin. I was hoping there was enough circuitry in the Fez to read it without needing the resistors and analog pin but I guess not.

It is, but you can only use it for a certain voltage. Since usbizi runs on 3,3v you can read maximum 3,3v on the analog pins.

So probably your battery is around 7 volts, which you cannot directly read with the analog pin. Therefor you would need the voltage divider :slight_smile:
