Get the current from the battery

Hi everybody!

Is there any solution to get the actual current that feeds the spark core on the VIN port?

It would be great to know somehow when should we change/recharge the battery.

Kind regards,

You can get a current sensor to do so.

Something like the ACS712 -

Polulu has a huge range and not pricey -

@timb is working on a battery shield with a fuel gauge so you can know the capacity of the battery and auto charging etc…
