How to add and power a Bluetooth receiver to battery powered speakers? Answered
I have a iHome speaker that is powered off 4 AAA batteries. I want to add this bluetooth receiver to the speaker.
The bluetooth receiver is powered off USB, but I want to keep the system battery powered. Can I take apart the bluetooth receiver and solder the power connections to the power connections on the speaker?
The speaker is powered off 4 AAA batteries, so 6 volts. (How many amps??)
The bluetooth is powered from USB which is 5 volts, correct?
Would the 6 volts from the AAA batteries damage the bluetooth receiver? What about current?
