I have just assembled a MonsterBorg which comes with a Thunderborg Motor Driver. The setup (MonsterBorg / ThunderBorg and Raspberry Pi) is powered by 10 x AA batteries. The Pi receives its power from the ThunderBorg via the GPIO (the first 6 pins are connected to the ThunderBorg).
Removing the battery pack is troublesome but I want to do some testing and software installations on the Pi without wasting battery life.
With the ThunderBorg / Battery Pack still attached to the Raspberry Pi GPIO (but switched off) can I connect and power up the RPi as normal using a mains AC adaptor? Without causing any damage to the ThunderBorg?
Just wanted to check to avoid any damage!!!
