Power A Raspberry Pi Zero Over Ethernet

The Raspberry Pi Zero doesn’t have an ethernet port, but with a little hacking, Node shows off a way to power the Pi with a single dual-purpose cable that will get you online and powered up.

You’ll need a USB ethernet adaptor, a step down converter, and a couple micro USB plugs. Once it’s all set up, you have both power and an internet connection in a single cable. You’ll need some soldering skills to get through this project, but the end result cuts down on cord clutter quite a bit. Head over to Node for the full guide.
