I just got my Arduboy in the mail yesterday, and although it’s running fine, I’m experiencing a weird issue that I couldn’t find mention of anywhere.
When I charge my Arduboy, the red LED on the bottom is on, which as I understand is normal. The weird thing is, when I unplug it, the red LED stays on, whether the device is turned on or off. As I understand, that shouldn’t be happening.
At first, I thought it was some kind of a battery issue, but even with the red LED on, the battery seems to be holding its charge for hours. I even turned it on and left it running a screensaver app for over 2 hours in addition to about 5 hours of being turned off with the red LED glowing, so the battery itself seems to be okay.
The red LED does go out, after the device loses a certain amount of charge, it seems. The device was still working, so the battery hadn’t completely discharged. But as soon as I charge the device up again, even for a little bit, the issue returns, and the red LED continues to glow persistently, after I unplug it.
Can anyone shed some light on the issue? Is there anything that can be done? I obviously don’t want the LED to always be on when my Arduboy is well charged.
