Extra 5V pins

I'm not sure how many other people would like this, but I'm using the two ADC chips on this board for different pieces of hardware, both of which need a 5V supply, and it would have simplified my life if the ADC Pi Plus had a second 5V pin at the other end of the row of inputs, i.e. adjacent to input 1.

I know I could grab 5V from the stacking header on the other side of the board, but that means I can't plug the hardware in with a single connector (and the pins on this stacking header aren't very satisfactory -- they seem to be too thin to mate securely with the usual crimp connectors).

Just a thought for the next time you're designing something like this!

Thank you for your suggestion.  I will look at adding a 5V pin onto the end of the input connector on the next revision of our ADC Pi boards.
