The documentation for the X728 states not to use the micro usb to power the pi, or to use the USB-C port. I am however quite confused by this. What is the proper way to charge the batteries in the x728 HAT? Should I avoid using the USB-C port and go straight to a barrel jack? I have been using the C port to charge the device batteries when I'm not using the Pi, I don't want to compromise the HAT or the Pi, so what is the best practice for charging this device. Should I use an external charger for the 18650 batteries, or is it safe to use the C port to charge them as i have been? Additionally, is it okay to plug power into the HAT via USB-C while I'm using the pi, essentially charging the batteries as I deplete them? I understand this may be an obvious answer but for others wondering im sure this thread would prove helpful.
