GL-Mifi 2.6.3 - MicroUSB Broken

Hey there,

Wondering if there’s a way to bypass the micro-usb and power the device directly?
I can’t seem to find any wiring diagrams online for the device, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

I wonder if I can simply use pins 3 and 5 here to power it?

Can you use the pins on the microUSB port itself? Or trace those pins back on the circuit board.

The adapter is only 5V, so you only need the 5V and GND pins.

Yeah I just went ahead and used pins 3 and 5 as per my screenshot and I’m up and running.

Where did you get the pin assignments in the screenshot?

I think pin3 and pin5 should be OK.

But it is better to power from the battery pins
