Hi, I’m just cautious because I’ve read in the past that some Fez died from ??overheating that resulted from too much load?? - not sure
As of now, I’m powering the Fez using the USB connection. It can power up the 3.3v bluetooth module, and still keeps itself normally warm.
But when I remove the 3.3v(removed from the 3.3v pin) and replace it with a 5v 16x2 LCD(placed in the 5v pin), the Fez starts to get hot, maybe 45C++? in just 10sec of using (just tested a display on the LCD,then immediately disconnect). Is this normal?
Can a 9v adapter safely power up the FEZ with a 3.3v BT module + a 5v 16x2 LCD? or should I use a different power source to power up the BT module and the LCD and not use Domino’s 3.3v and 5v pins?
