In some cases you may want to embed the battery charger in your setup, rather than having to unplug the battery each time you want to charge it. With a little bit of soldering, this is entirely feasible to do!
Connecting a wire to the battery charger

To this you can connect a JST Jumper wire:
The red wire is soldered to the
+ and the black wire to the
You can then connect your battery to the charger and plug in the cable you soldered to the MiniBee.
Alternative: solder to the MiniBee
If you don’t have a JST jumper wire available, you can solder two wires (I recommend using red for
+ and black for
-) between the charger board and the MiniBee.
In revision F we added pads at the bottom of the MiniBee to solder a power connection to:
For revision D it is a bit more complicated, you can solder to the JST connector:
or use the pads at the bottom for the coin cell (blue in the image):
