New Product - USB LiPo Battery Charger

 Interested in using Lithium-Polymer batteries but worried about building a charging circuit? Now you can put those worries to one side and charge your batteries with our new USB LiPo Charger module. It's an incredibly simple and convenient way to charge either a single 3.7V LiPo cell or a parallel matched set of cells from a USB port. You can adjust the charging rate between 100mA, 200mA, 300mA, and 500mA - and the status LEDs will let you know when the battery is ready. To keep your options open the module has a polyfuse-protected microUSB socket on one end for power, and pads on the other end for your choice of connector such as JST or just soldering directly to separate 0.1" pitch pads. 

 For more information including our Getting Started guide, design information and to order - please visit the USB LiPo Charger product page. And to keep up with product announcements, we're on twitter and Google+ - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
