Is there a way to wire the shutdown board and the lithium charge / boost module together? To enable the charge / boost module with the power button of the shutdown board... then I would not need an extra switch.  (the goal will be to disable the power boost when the pi is done shutting down.)

Thanks.

Yes, the new 1A module can do this. I'm actually using one this way right now. 

The left enable pin goes to the +in on the on/off board. The +out from the on/off board goes to the right enable pin. This will completely shut off the 5v boosting when the system is off.

Hi everyone...I'm upgrading from two T-105 Trojan flood batteries to a GBS 200 AH Lithium LifePo4 battery bank with BMS.  Would you recommend using my Renogy MPPT40CC solar charge controller on GEL setting.  GBS Lithium battery can be charged to 14.4 volt but most recommend 14.1 volt.
