As the title states I want to power my pi-zero with an adafruit powerboost 1000. I have looked into ways to do this and it seems there are 2 possibilities:
Use the USB output of the powerboost to power the pi-zero through it's intended usb port. However this takes up some space.
Use the expansion header of the pi-zero, specifically the 5v and the ground pins. This seems to be more compact.
I'd prefer option 2, but I also read that the usb option is safer since it has a fuse to protect the pi. However I think that doesn't apply to the pi-zero right?
So my question to you is am I correct that these 2 options are possible and are there some other up/downsides to either that I missed?
