I wanted to create a more generic version of my battery board that could easily be used with either a Model A or a Model B Raspberry Pi without electrical or mechanical modification. The board would utilize the same electronic components of my V1 board but have a form factor that allowed it to be simply plugged into a stock Raspberry Pi. After hacking away at some prototyping PCB, this is what I came up with
