MKS Skipr USB Power In

Hello everyone,

I am thinking about buying an MKS skipr board for the assembly of a Voron Trident.
Do you know if it is possible to power the “Pi” part when the main power input is off using the USB HOST port or a dedicated 5V power supply? THANKS

If using 5V adapter, this device
must be mounted.Replacing TVS mode is not
recommended, if must, please choose the same specifications

Operating Supply Vltage :5.5V(5.25-6V)
PeakPulse Current:>10A(tp=8/20uS)
Surge Clamping Voltage:<6.5V

I would suggest to ask for using a 5V power supply. USB Host power · Issue #48 · makerbase-mks/MKS-SKIPR · GitHub

Good luck, hcet14
