    12V at barrel jack


      I read many threads and in the documentation states the voltage provided to the Galileo should be 5V.  However, when I place a voltmeter on the barrel jack that was provided in the kit, i see 12V.   So I could cut the barrel jack end and wire that to my 12V battery, correct?   I dont have a problem getting to 5V, I have plenty batteries and buck converters available, I just want to double check that this input is indeed 5V.


      At which location on the board is 5V required?  I do not see any other terminals for power besides the barrel jack.  If someone could check their barrel jack for voltage i'd appreciate it.
