I knew my battery was ~6V (5* AA rechargeables)
But ya. I was rusty and finally went and looked at the schematic of the Axon again. (But before I read your post, so hah!
Thanks for translating that for me x)
I figured that'd probably tell me what I needed to know, but was hoping for a simpler solution. Considering that I don't have a good supply of basic electronic components lying around, I need to either buy such, or just go with the breakout board.
Probably will do both, of course
