The Battery

For this project I choose a 2200mAh battery but we can totally fit a bigger battery, like this beefy 6600mAh one. So if you want a longer lasting battery and you don't mind paying a little extra, go for it!

Connect Battery

Which ever battery capacity you choose, all of the ones carried by Adafruit can easily plug into the PowerBoost. 

Mount Battery

Since we can choose different sized batteries, I didn't design a specific mounting fixture for the battery. So I choose to secure mine to the top of the Speaker Bonnet with some mounting tack. I recommend doing this so the battery doesn't rattle around inside the case.
