NAILED IT!

I also noticed 5V and G pins. Was thinking I could power this thing via USB supply leads or a nice 12V-5V converter. I probably have a few lying around, or a donor USB cord. You know, to bypass the slightly bulky USB-C plug for power?
Yup. You can
You can also use that little plug and wire at the bottom of the plastic box and connect it to the back battery connector

Nice! That 5v rail is unregulated and only directly feeds the on board lipo charger so should be pretty safe to use.

I see youre not living uo to your name, wirelessandy
 

thanks

for all the fish

You can't go wireless without being wired somewhere.
I was considering going with a battery at first, but it would be a pain to recharge and replace, so I ended up reusing my original V1CD rj11 wire and created a jack with a 12-3.7v buck converter to power the SM V1CD.

In front of you but behind a Rabbit - Hot'Lanta,GA
The better half received a small Hospital Logo'd battery bank (about the size of 4 bundled ballpoint pens). I charge it and then USB cable it to the V1CD than put it wherever I want it.

If you have a spare case im still looking for one. Display has been running perfectly since May. Super impressive work. Case would just make it look more legit instead of DIY'd haha!
