Sorry this seems like a simple question, but just can't seem to find the answer any where


When using the MKR zero and a lipo battery how do you turn it on/off ?

Is the a way to do through the board, is it just a simple case cutting the positive cable and putting a switch in


Any Help would be great appreciated

A switch is the simplest.

Or you could use the sleep / standby functions just to lower the power usage.
AFAIK none of the Arduino boards have a dedicated ON/OFF switch.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
