NanoPi Duo2 what pins can you use to power

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Can you power the NanoPi Duo2 with the 5V In/Out pin and a ground instead of using the USB input?

Thanks,
Bob

Sure, this is working.

If you use the IoT-Board, then you have there a Network-Connection and two USB Connections on this board.

The +5V are supplied not over the micro-USB socket of the NanoPi-Duo2 Board.
The +5V are going from the IoT-Board to the two (in/out) 5V Pins of the NanoPi-Duo2 Board.

You should not use the USB-Connection to power your Pi, this is not a good connection if you want to run this device for a long time.

If the RaspBerryPi Users have error during the time they are using this device, then the most failure is the use of a USB-Cable.

So ... a good way is to use the two +5V Pins.
Better ... you solder a cable directly on this +5V pad of the PCB (and from ground of the PCB). This is a valid and good connection to supply this device with power.

Yes - you can power your Duo2 via these pins ;)
