It looks great and it is posted on out website ( along with the Arduino library that I wrote for the fuel gauge. These two things should get you up and running in no time.

As you run into questions with the energyShield, please post in our forum ( The forum is for all of you to discuss your projects/problems/etc. and for us to be able to interject when needed.

We are looking forward to getting feedback from all of you as you use the energyShield. Please post reviews on our website (, comments on Kickstarter, and if you are one of those people that just loves to do unboxing/review videos on YouTube, please do. We would appreciate the exposure.

Thank you for your continued support and enjoy wireless freedom with your new energyShields!
