Power

The easiest and safest way to power your Flora is with a 3xAAA battery pack. You can use alkaline or rechargeable batteries.
If you are more experienced, you can also use a lithium polymer rechargeable battery, which require a separate charger and can be hazardous if shorted, bent, crushed, or punctured.

This tiny lipoly can be wrapped in tape and double-stuck directly to the Flora board.
Now the circuit is functionally complete! Next we'll disguise the circuit as a fashion accessory.
