(Solved) How do I hook up the power switch to the powerboost 500?

Post by Demoman982 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 5:16 pm

I have no wires hooked up to the power switch, and I don't know how to hook it up. Any help?

I've asked too many questions on here...

Edit: Well. Didn't realize it was the same setup.

Why not do a little reading? At the top of this forum where you clicked on New Topic there are some Stickyed Posts that have a Light Bulb icon and one of them is............ Wiring Diagram: mintyPi controller PCB I don't know maybe your answer is there :roll: or maybe it's just better to ask and post a new thread asking what is obviously in plain view and easy to see so you can get the attention you need :?:

Nothing for the powerboost. I don't know how to hook it up.

Is it the same process? I've never done this before. I'm not asking for attention.

You can do the same as the micro lipo...or you can also wire the switch to the en and gnd pin (these pins are on the pb500 not the micro lipo). I choose to do it this way. Grounding the en pin will shut off the powerboost.

Then use one of the multiple 5v outputs to provide power to the board/pi and sound card.
