Switch for PowerBoost

We'll wired up a slide switch to the PowerBoost 1000C. Make two pieces of wire about 14cm in length – I used 26AWG. Prep the slide switch by cutting off one of the legs, either the far left or right, but not the middle! Then, trim the remaining two legs so they're about half the length.

Tin Wires

Using wire strippers, remove a bit of insulation from the tips of both wires. Then, tin the bare strands of wire by adding a tiny bit of solder to them. Add a piece of heat shrink tubing to keep the two wires together.

Solder Wires to Switch

Attach the two wires to the legs of the switch by soldering them together.

Connect Switch to PowerBoost

Solder the wires from the switch to the EN and GND labeled pins on the PowerBoost.
