Daniel T, one of our Kickstarter backers for MoPi, wanted to fit a remote power switch to his board.

Here's the result:

Daniel hasn't got the soldering bug yet :-) so I fitted one for him, and here are the pics...

It is an easy job — just wire up an SPST push-to-make switch to the two pads next to the power switch:

And voila:
