Sharing power between two T-Display-S3 devices
Here's a little trick ...
did you know that you can share the power between two T-Display-S3 devices by plugging one into your USB power cable, and then joining the second device to the first device via the devices' battery cables.
Here a couple pictures to show you what I mean:
I've been using this setup for several months with no issue!
Very nice, I'm curious about the battery charging ??? Is the T-Display charging the battery while it's connected via USB ???
I'm building out a project with the T-Display-S3 myself but I'm going to use 2 18650 batteries, with this charger module Charger Module I'm also curious on the power usage and battery life on the T-Display-S3.
I'm trying to find a way to power my T-Display-S3 it from an external 5V power supply. I've tried to apply power to 5V and GND terminals but didn't work.
Any clue ?

@pbatch You can use an external 5V source and bring it in through the USB port.
Alternately connect it to the battery charging port (if there is no battery connected to it.)
