Re: Hardware question about power


Basil Gunn
 

There is a white 2 pin connector on the DRAWs, I am guessing I can put
anderson power pole connectors on the pig tail that came with my case
and plug that into my rigrunner power distribution block and be all
set. Will this also power the PI
Yes

or do I need to still plug that into micro USB?
Either power with 12V with the connector on the DRAWS board OR use the
micro USB on the RPi. NEVER both at once.

What is the black 8 pin connector for?
