So I powered up Bolt with a 9V Battery, it connects to the Wifi network but it does not respond to the commands i give it. It works only if i power it with a usb cable.
Bolt is designed to operate at 5V. Connecting 9V to Bolt directly could permanently damage the device. It will also void your warranty.
You will need to connect 9V Battery with a 5V regulator like 7805 connected in series for it to work.
Try with 5V micro USB power adapter…that is ur normal mobile charger
