BattBorg dual 5V output from 6-pin header?


I was wondering if I can safely bridge the connectors under the 6-pin header and have dual 5V output available?

i.e. bridge pin 4 to pin 3 and pin 6 to pin 5 so I can power a RasPi in the usual way and have another 5V output to power a servo?

Pins 1, 3, and 5 are not connected to anything on the BattBorg.

You should be able to bridge pins 3 to 4 and 5 to 6 to create another power connection for a servo.
You should also be able to solder a signal wire to pin 1 so that you can connect a single 3-pin cable to the servo if you wish.

If you do make this change then do not try and connect the modified BattBorg via a PicoBorg Reverse, otherwise you will connect 5v to the I2C lines which will likely damage the Raspberry Pi and the PicoBorg Reverse.
