I will be using a high-amp 5v power supply feeding the Raspberry Pi 2 via microusb. (Similar to this http://www.dx.com/p/dc-6v-24v-to-usb-dc-5v-3a-regulated-power-supply-module-black-314056 one)
I would like to "siphon" off a 5v source before the RPi's poly fuse to power other external devices.
The surface mount solder points for the microusb jack look to be too fine for my soldering skills to be effective there.
Most USB cables don't seem to have heavy enough wires to easily work with. Other than splicing into the usb cable, is there somewhere that I could tap into?
Or is there an easier way to get 5v into the RPi's microusb and simultaneously to other devices? Maybe something with USB breakout boards.
