Received my pcb's and shutdowns today. I'm so excited to build these with my kids. Is HoolyHoos shutdown script available yet. I've searched the forums with no luck.

Edit: I found HoolyHoos script on his GitHub

Thanks again guys for the awesome product and service

This worked like a charm, thanks HoolyHoo and Helder! The whole install literally took 15 minutes.

You don't "wire" it. You solder it directly onto the mainboard, at the top left you have pads for this purpose.

You put the shutdown board on the main board, align the holes and the pads, then flow tint into the holes ---> done

Take a look at this photo from the very first post in this thread.

After soldering the battery monitoring board to the main board through the VCC and GND holes, attach two wires to SCL and SDA from the mini board to the pi GPIO's as shown. The battery plus and minus are soldered to the mini board Bat + and Bat - respectively. These use to be soldered to VCC and GND of the main board before addition of mini board.
Also, if you want to add a tact switch for on demand shutdown, then wire the tact with one wire to GPIO 7 of the pi and the other to any ground connection. Placement of the tact switch is up to you. ;)
