FYI- there's a discussion over @ 43oh.com but I didn't see one here, so for anyone who just watches this forum- Element14 released a LiPo-based boosterpack compatible with 40-pin XL LaunchPads for both charging and using a LiPo battery.  It incorporates TI TPS63001/63002 boost converters for providing 3.3V and 5V rails to the intended boosterpack pins, up to 1.2A output current capability from those chips (if the source allows).


It has some issues, mainly in the choice of boosterpack pins for the I2C interface... which I'm making an "adapter" bpak so I can change this.
