How do I charge the battery?

Battery Charging Instructions:

To charge the battery, shut down the Piper Computer Kit and press the battery’s power button.  Unplug both cables from the battery and remove the green power cable from the Raspberry Pi - we’ll use this cable to charge the battery.  Plug the micro USB end of the cable into the battery’s Micro USB port located below the LED.  Now you’re ready to charge the battery.

We recommend charging the battery with a Piper approved USB Wall Charger.  If you’re outside of the US, you may need to use a Piper approved International Adapter.  You can also charge the battery through a laptop or desktop computer’s USB port.  Once the battery is plugged in, the LED will blink indicating that it’s charging.  When the battery is fully charged, the lights will turn off.
