What is the best way to use the Zero LiPo with an off/off switch or button?
I have repurposed a Kodak Brownie to host a Raspberry Pi Camera connected to a Zero W and my plan is to have a power on/off button or switch that:
- powers on the RPi when pressed on
- safely shuts down the RPi when pressed “off”
- turns the RPi back on again without re-connecting the LiPo when pressed “on” again after 1 and 2
I’m not sure if 1,2 & 3 can all be done easily with the Zero LiPo but I saw a thread mentioning that that G, V and EN pins can be used to do a “hard shutdown”, but a safe shutdown as per 2.
Thanks in advance
I have the Zero LiPo already and have soldered it onto my Zero W so wanted to try to find a solution with this board, but if there’s an easier alternative I could switch.
