Wio Terminal Battery Not Initialized


I’m using the SparkFunBQ27441 library to read the battery status and the lipo.begin() function is returning false; indicating the battery isn’t available or not initialized.

I’ve also tested this using the example code from this page:
Wio Terminal Chassis Battery(650mAh) - Seeed Wiki (seeedstudio.com)
Which produces the same result, Battery Not Initialized.

What am I missing?

Thank yuo,

Hi @bob.mixon

There is a ON/OFF button on the NEW Wio Terminal Battery chassis (only the new version has this)

If I remember correctly on the Fuel Tank BoosterPack MK-II, the BQ27441 requires a full charge cycle to record the top-level capacity of the battery.

Having the same problem, anyone actually fixed this?
