Powering the board without DC Jack

I need to power the board with DC but without using the front Panel DC plug (USB-C is not an option)
Is there any easy way to connect power on the board itself. There are two 4pin headers with one lacking any description in the documentation.

I can always solder a cable from the bottom to the pads of the DC jack, but that is a bit difficult with the fan in a way.

:slightly_frowning_face: :slightly_frowning_face: :slightly_frowning_face:Sorry,only the DC jack and Type-C PD .

I have the same issue. I have peeled off the DC jack and exposed the pads on the top. Not very convenient to do. Seeed designers really dropped the ball on this small but important issue.

yes it would really not hurt if the power button header had 2 additional pins for actual power delivery.
Or something similar. I built a base for it with integrated battery and rely on the dangling power jack.

Maybe our voice will be heard and for the next iteration.
