Soldering an AA Power Board


Soldering an AA Power Board

Note that you don't actually need an AA power board to run a jeenode. It's just a way to make jeenodes run off a single AA battery. [FIXME: Need to find a picture of how to hook up a jeenode without the AA power board]

I run my jeenodes off Apple rechargeable batteries. Apple, yuck. But it's environmentally friendly and the cheap option until Open Source Ecology solves this for the open source hardware community.

I have mine in "inline" mode as seen here which only requires me to solder:

  • the two clips for the battery
  • the FTDI header (same as the USB-BUB II)
Need help?


The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
