1. DC Board
Desolder the original DC board on your GBC/Pocket
2. DC Board
IF YOU ARE USING A LiPo:
On the back of the board, solder a wire to "TO F1", if you are installing the board to a Color also solder a wire to "TO 5V". Make the wires 5cm long, you can shorten them later. Next:
Solder it into position using header pins.
For LiPo install only
If you are using AA/AAAs, you're done! If not:
Only complete the following steps if you are using a LiPo.
WARNING: LiPo batteries can be very dangerous.
DO NOT use a puffy LiPo.
DO NOT puncture the LiPo or force it into the shell.
Do an internet search on "LiPo safety". I am not responsible if you blow sh*t up
3. USB C/5V
First desolder the DC Jack.
Then install the USB C port, soldering to the pads to anchor it. You will need to hold your iron there for a few seconds so the solder melts through to the motherboard
4. To F1
This is only for LiPo installs.
