How to power a ultraborg and a battborg


How can I use the battborg when using the ultraborg as they both use the same pins on the Raspberry Pi?
Can I use the micro USB standard power supply connection if I modify the cable and connect it to the battborg?

This is actually quite simple, they are designed to work together.

All you need to do is mount the BattBorg upside down on the 6-pin daisy-chain connector.
There is a mounting hole in the middle of the UltraBorg that will line up with the one on the BattBorg that can be used with the mounting post.

I do not have any images handy, but it works the same as when fitted on a PicoBorg Reverse:


If I wanted to daisy chain several ultraborgs or picoborg reverses, and power the whole with a battborg, would I add the battborg to the empty daisy chain header on the last board of the chain?

Yes, adding the BattBorg to the final board in the daisy-chain will power all of the boards and the Raspberry Pi.
