Can I power the spark core with a battery?

I new to building with Spark core and using breadboards in general. I’m pretty sure you can power spark core with a battery but can anyone suggest which battery to use?


the Spark Store ( has a rather comically shaped battery board for the Core. There’s also one in development which should be a bit more, professional looking


it would be nice to ask your questions in a same thread though they are differing questions so that we can answer it at one go.

5 threads in 15 mins is gonna make things really cluttered :wink:

Ok! Sorry about that. I thought it would be better for the sake of being organized.

Are you referring to the battery shield here?
