Battery case and power question
#1
I bought the pine64 battery case and will be running it as a backup power supply for fluxuations/shutdown of the 12v supply coming from my car. 

The battery case came and has 2 copper wires just floating over the battery area, do these need to be attached to anything? They are "glued" together...

Also since the primary power will be coming from the DC usb, when I turn the car off will the battery automatically kick in and run the board?

the 2 copper wire with thermistor on tip is for temperature sensing, just place close to the batteries.

Will the battery kick in when it detects usb power fluctuations or should I set it up to run off battery and just use the usb to charge the battery? How would I ser it up like that?
