 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

[size=12]Hello!
Normally I run my Arduino Duemilanove via its USB portal, because it seems I am still writing and rewriting these sketches.

I've noticed that the board is wearing the standard coaxial power connector which tells me that it can be supported via the typical wall wart.

I've also during these runs attached things to the power portals on the connectors, can they be used to send power into the board?

After all it is typically running attached to a typical breadboard which has a power supply attached to it delivering 5v at a good delivery.

Hello!
And thank you for confirming this discovery. I had an inspired guess regarding this particular board shortly after posting it, but I needed to have it confirmed.
