Powering PineTime
#1
My PineTime battery connector is broken. Can we connect 5V usb power supply to the connector (where LIPO battery was connected) to safely power PineTime?

Personally I would power it via the 5v pads. There are a couple of ideas on how to do this floating round the forum. I think the two most common are carefully constructed flying wires and blutack to hold the wires on the pads and drilling holes for the SWD wires and then clamping or taping the watch to the charger.
