F.A.Q.

Can the PowerBoost Shield be used with the Arduino Yun?

Kinda! The Yun, like the Arduino Ethernet, has some chunky connectors in the way which makes stacking difficult. You can use an extra set of stacking headers to clear the Ethernet connector, however the power supply for the Yun is differently set up than any other Arduino

To make the power boost shield work on the Yun, connect a jumper between the 5V and Vin pin on the powerboost shield.

We suggest a PowerBoost 500C, which you can use to just power over USB!
