Sorry if this has been asked a million times before.
I haved an iR camera for my Pi and I'm very happy with it BUT it gets very, very hot and I could easily double battry life if I could power it down when I'm not using it (most of the time).
I can't stop power going to the ribbon cable. Could I break the power line(s) in the ribbon cable and add a switch safely?
I guess I'm really asking if it is OK to hot plug the camera.
