Right now I have one sparkfun serlcd connected to an arduino nano using a digital pin and the 5v / ground pins. I want to connect a couple more lcds and another peripheral however since there is only one 5v output pin, do I just spit some jumpers and run them all off that pin?
I'm new to arduino (loving it so far!), I first tried using a separate 5v power supply but the lcd wasn't working at all, I'm assuming it needed a common ground with the digital pin hence the reason it works 100% when using the boards power / ground.
My only concern is if the board supplies enough amps to power a lot of stuff off those two pins.
Anyone know if this would be ok?
