A this moment this shield have acces for all of the ESP8266-05 pins which can be screw by cable to outside world.

Shield and ESP8266 can be supplied from external power source by low drop stabilizer +3V3 on the output.

On the board we have also 2 mounting holes with 3 mm diameter.

All of the pins are well describe to simplify to maximum usage proces without looking in to the specification.

If you will find an idea what to add to this board or how to improve it feel free to make a comment.
