    @DrAzzy I've just removed the FET and resistor, so it's just USB->Fuse->Diode->5V->regulator now. The diode is just so you can't force power back into USB if you run from >5v and connect USB, it also gives the regulator a slightly easier time :)

    For some projects, I needed to power other things with the 5V of the USB. In order to do that, I had to solder an extra wire just between the USB connector and the schottky diode, because the latter causes a voltage drop of nearly 0.3 or 0.4V depending on the current. Do you think it is possible to add a pin, providing the direct 5V of the USB?
