Circuit Diagram

This diagram uses the original Trinket but you can also use the Trinket M0 with the exact same wiring!

Wired Connections

The circuit diagram above shows how the components will be wired together. This won't be 100% exact in the actual circuit but it's a very close approximation.

Lipo Backpack

  • 5V on the Lipo Backpack to USB on the Trinket
  • GND on the Lipo Backpack to GND Trinket
  • BAT on the Lipo Backpack to BAT on the Trinket
  • The two through holes next to 5V on the Lipo Backpack to the two pins on the slide switch

NeoPixel Strip

  • +5V on the Strip is shared with BAT on the Trinket
  • GND on the Strip is shared with GND on the Trinket
  • D1 on the Strip to pin #4 on the Trinket

Battery Power

The circuit will be powered by a 3.7V 2200mAh Lithium ion battery via JST connection. The battery plugs into the JST connection on the Lipo Backpack.
