External power Maix Dock

Can I connect an external power supply directly to the 5V power pins of the Maix Dock and bypass the USB-connector? Or are these output pins only?

To answer my own question: Yes, you can drive the board using the 5V or 3.3V pins.

Hi, did you find an answer to your questions?

Today i’m facing the same problem, I want to power my Maix from the Arduino 5V pin, and/or from the same power source for the Arduino that currently has 2000mA.

Another source of power could be the 5V pin of a Raspberry PI.

I hope some one have the answer to this questions, or we’ll have to “try and cross our fingers” .

Can you power through 3v3 ?
Maix Bit too?
