Our module has four different power sources:

  1. GPS USB port (5V)
  2. Radio USB port (5V)
  3. Arduino rail pins (5V)
  4. Pixhawk connector (5V)

You can use any of the four options. The module is protected against multiple power connections.

Can I connect P1 to a tablet and P2 to a power bank?
In this case where most of the power will be drawn from?
Staff replied 3 years ago

Yes this configuration is allowed. Power will be drawn from the source with highest voltage, which will be usually the tablet.
