Thank you for taking the time to take a photo.

I always wondered where the "L1" was located...

I will not start this process until a ReclockPi is in hand when I have to purchase my 2nd TransportPi.

My 1st TransportPi will be left un-modded.

Look at b and d.


If you want to use an independent DC power supply for TransportPi, you will need:
a. Solder the supplied DC terminal connector to the position of J3.
b. Remove FB L1 at bottom side of PCB if you donít want this power supply connected to GPIO anymore.
c. Feed good 5V linear/ultra capacitor voltage rail or 3.3V LifePO4/ultra capacitor rail to J3.
d. If 3.3V pure LifePO4 or ultra capacitor voltage is used, itís highly recommended to bypass the on-board low
noise LDO by soldering jumper wires between IN and OUT as described above

Is "L1" basically that small board in the middle of the TransportPi with the labels "3.3V REG" and "LOW NOISE"?

If so, do I just solder a wire to "IN" on one end and "OUT" on the other end?

EDIT: I noticed in your photo the wiring on the TransportPi. Is this the step to remove "L1"?

I would suggest to make it optional. IME it can help, hurt, or make no difference. Have to try it under the conditions where the equipment will be used to see.

d. seems pretty straightforward. just need to solder a single jumper wire on two ends.

b. unsure how to remove. can I just pull out the metal piece off of L1? do I need to de-solder?

Note: I cannot proceed ATM because I need to purchase a second TransportPi. My current TransportPi is in production un-modified, so I don't want to touch since STABLE. But this will really be beneficial once I get the second TransportPi.

L1 must of course be desoldered.

Cheers for the confirmation.


I likely will not be able to attempt this feat until the Summer, so it's great to know the proper step in advance.

Not comparable to how it sounds in real live, but it gives an idea
