Hi I have a Nano (original flavor) and I need to power it with +5 VDC. I will not be using the USB connector however, so where would be the best spot on the Nano to "land" or connect the +5VDC to?
I intend to solder this +5VDC wire to the "5V" pin, knowing that this is actually intended as an output of the 5 volt regulator on the Nano. Are there any potential problems (concerning the Nano) with this?
This Nano is the controller for an outside temp/humidity sensor that communicates via an NRf24l102 board to another Nano inside. I have +12volts available outside, but I understand that +12 volt is a little too high for the Nano's onboard regulator. I am using the +12 Volt to supply an LM7805, and that is where i am getting the +5 VDC from.
Any constructive criticism is appreciated!
