I’m working on a project where I’d like to have my electron charge wirelessly. I bought a small Qi receiver and charging pad that should provide 1A of power a 5V. I plugged it in and tested just the charging pad and it’s definitely getting 5V, I added a resistor and LED to the circuit and it seems like it’s completing just fine.
That brings me to trying it with the electron. I’ve so far attached the 5V on the receiver to both Vin and Vusb, but I can’t get the charging light to light up or the battery itself to charge. I’ve been putting it in sleep mode to hopefully charge faster as well to no avail.
Any insight would be great! I’m sure I’m doing something boneheaded.
