The Pi-Go connects to the GPIO header and supplies a solid 5V at up to 3A for the Pi and its connected peripherals. The board is designed to maintain the 5V output with an input anywhere from 10V to 16VDC. A real fuse is on-board for over-current protection. Genuine Anderson Powerpole connectors are provided for direct use with the de-facto ARES power configuration.
Two momentary switches are provided on GPIO 23 and GPIO 25. If you're a fan ofAmateurLogic.TV, then you may have seen episode 76 where Tommy uses a Python script for shutdown and reboot. These two switches will work directly with that script, or they could be used for another purpose.Battery-Powered Ham Station
