I’ve been waiting for the DP module to become available, but there apparently is a backlog.
According to this site (http://pinouts.ru/Slots/USB_pinout.shtml), the USB wiring spec has VCC on pin 1 and Gnd on pin 4.
Could I just cut the end off a cable and wire in my battery and use that power my FEZ (either Domino or future Gadgeteer device)?
Anything to be wary of if I were to take this approach? For example on the SP module, would this still fall under the watchful eye of the voltage regulator (assuming there is one)?
