-As of late January 2016 I have been using an Adafruit Feather as the board powering the chorder I wear.  There are some issues with it when reconnecting to an Android device to which it has already been paired. ​ More often than I like on the phone I find myself having to "​forget"​ the Feather and repair ​rather than simply reconnect ​but other than that minor inconvenience it has been working beautifully.+As of late January 2016 I have been using an Adafruit Feather as the board powering the chorder I wear.  There are some issues with it when reconnecting to an Android device to which it has already been paired. ​ More often than I likeI find myself having to "​forget"​ the Feather ​on the phone and re-pair ​rather than simply reconnect.

-Thec advantage of using this board is that it has both the LiPo charger and the BLE transceiver built in reducing the board count for the chorder from three to one. All that is required is to attach the keys and on/off switch, plug in the battery and then program it over a standard micro usb cable.+The advantage of using this board is that it has both the LiPo charger and the BLE transceiver built inreducing the board count for the chorder from three to one.
