Batteries
#10
For it to stay on, you need a couple things.
1) The correct SD card image.
2) Hold down the ON button until the green light comes on.

It will also boot if you connect power directly to the Pi Zero, but (of course) this is not using the battery.

I have heard a few people now having problems with the pins that poke out the "back" of the battery terminals marked "H2" and "H3." In some cases, these can protrude far enough to contact the LCD casing (which is metal there) and cause problems. The best thing is to clip them off, so they do not short out against the back of the LCD.

I feel like the battery that you've shown should work fine. I guess I'd need to see how you have it connected to the GPA board to see if there's anything wrong there.

I will email you direct, so we can try to debug some things quickly.
