I am using the Pololu 5V Step-Up Voltage Regulator U1V11F5 to step up the 3.3v pin to 5v to run a plantower 5003 air sensor. I wired the step up booster Vin - 3.3v , gnd- gnd, shutdown - d7, vout to air sensor. It reads 5v just fine and shuts down with the D7 pin as it should. The problem is that when it turns the booster back on it resets the photon completely. I am guessing the surge to turn it back on is too much. Any hints on how to fix this?
My end goal is to run this on an electron on just the 3.3 v battery.
