Is it possible to power the particle boron through he USB pin?
The boron datasheet states you cannot power the boron through the 3.3V pin, but does not explicitly state if you can power it through the USB pin.

If you can power it through the usb pin what voltage should I apply to it?

Thank you

@jastew1011, welcome to the Particle Community! I would not recommend going higher than 5.5v on VUSB and ideally 5v.
