We are producing a plug-in board which holds (amongst other stuff) a +5V power source. Rather than use the USB connector on the main LattePanda board, can we feed the board via the 4 pins on the Leonardo 24 pin socket (pins 21 to 24) without damage? :?: ;)

While you wait for answer: My "guess" would be probably - provided you leave plenty of room for cooling - and don't allow the plug any lateral pressure. As for whether it will power on that way it may depend on whether that was originally accounted for in bios and that may be a place to look for power options relative to your question. (Sorry I don't have the definitive yes/no.)
