      I was hoping that this shield would be compatible with Arduino Yun.

      <p>Sadly, it is not. Physically. The ethernet port of Arduino Yun is blocking the connection. Or the JST-connector on the shield. Maybe one can raise the headers about 5mm more. Then it should fit.</p>

      You said in a previous questions that A0 Pin is used to detect the voltage of the battery connected to the Energy Shield.
      I tried to read the battery voltaje such as a simple analogRead(), but i obtain about 1V.... What could not be correct at all.<

      <p>Thanks, but could you, please, post a code to obtain accurate measurements of the battery... Because what you say is not real.. i obtained 1.07V, but the battery is full, so it could not be 2V such as you say...<br>I think this is an important issue in

      I would like to know if, when the shield is mounte on an arduino board is it possible to measure the voltaje of the battery and the solar panel voltaje connected to it. If yes, how? Thanks.

      <p>No, i din?t know that! Your wiki say that this board only use Vin and 5V pins... Nothing anywhere about it use the A0 to read the battery level. This is great, and i think you should say that in the wiki too.</p><p>Okay, about the solar panel, it means

      Previously you said any 3.7V Li-po battery yous sold would be ok... but is there enough space between the two rows of blue pins to hold old type of li-po batteries? I have on mind the 6A battery to sold, but for the size (height and width) i think it c

      <p>Okay, may be it could be useful for others: the 3.7V 6000 mAh lipo battery from SeedStudy does not match. I mean, it have about the same size than the shield, so, it is not possible to have the battery ON the shield, between the blue pins to allow to a
