Power Solder

Wed Apr 13, 2016 3:45 pm

I need to solder the power cable to the PI but still PASS trought the fuse.
Is it possible?

I dont want to bypass the fuse (like the GPIO instructions I have found).

Thank you!

Have a look at the schematics.
For example, on a Pi 3 you can solder the 5V power to PP1 and/or PP2 on the underside of the Pi, and the power will still have to pass through the fuse.

Hope this helps,

Sorry to be nibby, but, why do you want to solder to the power rather than use a connector which can be easily unplugged... ?
