The FLORA family also has the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules and chainable LED NeoPixels, perfect accessories for the FLORA main board.
We suggest one of our micro-lipo chargers if you want to use LiPo batteries with FLORA. FLORA has onboard power switch connected to 2A power FET for safe and efficient battery on/off control.
The FLORA has an onboard 3.3v 150mA regulator with a protection diode and USB fuse so that the microcontroller voltage is consistent and can power common 3.3v modules and sensors.
FLORA is extremely beginner-friendly - it is difficult to destroy the FLORA by connecting a battery backwards due to polarized connector and protection diodes.
FLORA is currently using our bootloader and Adafruit USB vendor ID.
