How to power up nanopi air without otg?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hello there,

I was wondering, is there any way to power up the NanoPi Air directly through on board wiring from a 5V3A regulator? without using the microusb or otg?

Is the microusb port onboard is only for power? or does it also have data? so that we can connect any usb peripherals through that?

Please let me know, thank you.
take a look at the upper right pins for 5v in/out and gnd at the attached picture.
there you can power the NanoPi Air via the pins :)

Also you can read additional informations in the Wiki about the NanoPi AIr:

Power and data. On Armbian it is used as serial console.
