Powering The Raspberry Pi via the GPIO pins

its easy to power via the GPIO BUT it bypasses the normal dc protection so a good regulated psu is required and you have to be careful, but so far so good here. it would be nice to have POE implemented in the pi
pin 2 is 5+
pin 6 is ground
Heres the pinout for the whole GPIO connector
