I just opened my Bluz and battery shield today for the first time. I seem to be having trouble with my battery shield. Here’s what’s happened so far.
I put the Bluz on a breadboard and powered it via 3V3 from a Photon. This worked fine. The board powered up and I was able to connect to it via iOS app, claim it, and see it in Particle web IDE. So that board seems ok?
I put a new CR2032 into the battery shield by itself, turn it on, and the white power LED lights up. I turn it off, put the Bluz onto the battery shield, power it on–Nothing. Not even a power light! Pull the Bluz off, power light comes on just fine. I checked the voltage of the CR2032 and it’s 3.29V.
Is my battery shield defective or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
