So I have this crazy idea of taking 3 AAs and connecting them directly to the Photon (in series), using something like this 3xAA holder. I have some rechargeable NiMh AA batteries that I’m not using at the moment.
Thing is, I’m totally new at this. Is it a bad idea? In theory 3x1.5 gives me 4.5V, right in the range for the Photon. Everyone seems to be using fancy LiPo battery packs though, are they better in some way? Am I crazy for trying to use what I already have handy?
