    Suggestion for the mini-breakout board...

    DaveInDurban

      I've only had it for a few days now, but I've already noticed a problem: the pins are on the wrong side of the board! I connected a lipo battery and 12V power supply using the pins that are preinstalled. I then added pins to the GPIO connectors, but these have to be on the other side of the board. As a result, I can't easily mount the board in a box.

       

      My suggestion is that either it comes with the pins on the other side, or maybe more logically, without the pins at all: some people will only ever use the USB to power the board, so the pins aren't always necessary. And I actually would have preferred the power and LiPo pins to be keyed, so you can't accidentally connect them the wrong way around.

       

      That's just my 2 cents!
