    Question Mini USB soldering directly to Raspberry Pi USB not working

    I'm not sure. I have another mini usb cable that I have been using by just plugging it into the usb port which works fine, so there might be something wrong with the cable. I guess I'll get a new one on amazon and see if I can get it to work.

    Thanks, I decided to go with the 3.5mm audio jack on the screen. I just desoldered it, moved it to the spot for it on my case, and it works perfectly!

    Solved Trying to Power a Raspberry Pi and 5" LCD Screen with 1 Battery

    Oh yeah, that's what I was talking about. I guess I assumed it came from the UK or something since shipping time says it takes up to 30 days to arrive

    Solved Trying to Power a Raspberry Pi and 5" LCD Screen with 1 Battery

    Yeah, that's probably my best bet. I wanted to try my current setup with the cheap voltage booster first though since the RetroPSU is expensive and takes forever to ship all the way to the US.

    Solved Trying to Power a Raspberry Pi and 5" LCD Screen with 1 Battery

    Ok, I tried increasing the voltage up to 5.72v, but it still diddn't work. This time the voltage fluctuated between about 3.15v, 4.15v, and 5.65v, but wasn't stable enough to power both devices.

    Raspberry Pi Portable Questions

    If you are trying to modify it, like get one half of the controller on one side of the console and the other half on the other side, then it's practically impossible. If you don't need to modify it you can just use it as-is with the USB cord plugged into the Pi. I'd recommend making your own...
