ROCKPro64 has Lithium Battery Port yes or no?
#1
In https://www.pine64.org/rockpro64/ it is indicated that ROCKPro64 has Lithium Battery Port in the manner of Pine64+ and Pine64-LTS, and the photo seems to show a battery connector. But in https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php?title=ROCK64 there is no mention of a lithium battery port and that clearly looked like the battery connector, it is labeled "SPDIF header" and the other possible port candidates are labeled as "PWM controlled fan header", "RTC battery backup header" and "DC out for SATA disk cable".

Yes.

See label 6 in the RockPro64 wiki.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced

The battery connector is intended for backing up the RTC, not for powering the whole board. If you wanted to power the whole board from a large lithium battery, you would need to have some way of the battery supplying 12V through the barrel jack, i.e. a separate charging & power supply circuit.

If so, the information on the website ( https://www.pine64.org/rockpro64/ ) is wrong (it incorrectly indicates that it has a Lithium Battery Port that it does not have) and should be corrected.

Thank you very much for answering my question.
