I posted this same question in the "installation & troubleshooting" section, but received nothing in the way of a response...
The question/concern I have is regarding powering 10 DS18B20 temperature probes (Or anything at all) while I have a 3.2" TFT LCD Touchscreen shield installed on a Mega 2560.
Basically the TFT uses the 5V pin, but it does not provide any kind of pass through to allow for powering other devices, which seems to be a huge oversight to me, since generally speaking, you would surely have more than just a display if you are using a display... Hope that made sense...
Anyhow, right now my solution involved cutting the end off and stripping one of my jumper wires, pushing it down into the 5v header, then installing the display shield... Which is not even remotely ideal to me, not to mention how unprofessional it looks... Given that I am hoping to sell some of these temperature displays/graphs to computer enthusiasts, I need them be semi/professional in appearance.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance, and for all the help these forums have provided me!!!
