Power with Battery On/Off

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.

hello in a new revision of MKR series, would be possible create a simple way to insert a switch in the connection from the node of Q3a/Q3b and the node C8/U2? would be the simpliest mode to disconnect the power to the "logic" part of the MKR and the accessory circuits connect to the 3,3v, manteining the possibility to charge the battery with the system off an other way would be a circuitry like computers on/off pushbutton...

MKR series is a board oriented to the portable devices and this feature would be an interesting upgrade
